Microsoft’s Bing App for Apple iOS Devices

Microsoft has created a Bing search app for Apple’s iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.  Bing displays “a visually rich, touch-enabled way to search and browse news, movies, Bing homepage images, local businesses, popular searches and much more.”  You can read movie listings, news articles, weather, traffic reports, and more on the touch-enabled screen.  Bing Local and Map integrations helps you “find the places you are looking for from directions with real-time tracking to immersive road, traffic, aerial and “bird’s eye” views.”  You can even navigate between Bing search results and websites that are captured in frames for easy return to the search results page.  The Bing app is available for iPhone/iPod touch and for iPad.  The apps are free in the iTunes store.
