Microsoft has just released the Bing app for iPhone and iPod Touch. At first I was not that excited to download the app, however after using it for a while I really liked it.
Bing for iPhone has the same feel as the website and uses a background image. There are options to search the web, images, movies, maps, businesses, news and directions. The web search has auto-complete which refreshes as you type. Though there is not much difference between the web results and the app.
The image search once again is a treat to the eye as you can see from the screenshot above. When you launch the image search you will see some pre-loaded image searches based on the Bing background of the day, clicking on one should take you to the image search gallery.
I tried out a direction search and found it to be pretty useful as it provided with both driving and walking directions. I didn’t try out the Maps much. The app has an option to automatically detect your current location if you allow it to, which can allow you to customize your searches based on your location. The movies search is decent too and displays the latest movies playing near you based on your location.
Overall the Bing app for iPhone provides you with a really nice experience and is worth downloading. The app is available for download free of cost from the app store. iTunes link.
