Microsoft Bing Finally Comes To The iPhone

Microsoft has finally launched its first search engine app for the iPhone. Bing for iPhone [Free, App Store link] is actually MS’s second iPhone app, the first one was that image-zooming app called the Seadragon Mobile.

Make decisions and get where you need to go with Bing. See the Bing daily image and related trivia on the home screen. Search maps or the web with your voice – even say an address. Use Image Search and flick through previews Download Bing today to find stuff nearby and get there fast.

Here are few of the features in Bing’s iPhone version that MS talks about:

•Voice search continues in our iPhone App and works great for map locations as well as old fashioned web search. Just say “San Francisco weather,” for a quick result, or even say a full address for a map or directions.
•Directions – looking for a coffee shop nearby? Bing automatically finds your location. It’s also easy to discover a new spot by category such as restaurants, banks, theaters etc.
•Mapping action – Swipe through each step of the directions, and check out how fast the map pans and zooms.
•Images – Try image search with endless scrolling results. Then easily flick through image previews and click through to the host site.
