Here’s What Bing’s Doing On iOS Now
Bing announced the launch of some new features for the iPhone and iPod Touch today, building on recent updates to its Windows Phone, Android and iOS experiences.
There are four new tiles for the homepage, which will show trending news, images from Bing trends, maps (for local businesses) and weather.
There’s also a new share button with an updated design, which allows users to share images via Facebook and Twitter, as well as save a screenshot of the full search results page, homepage image or image from Bing Image Search.
A new menu lets users browse saved images, screenshots and bookmarks and sign in with a Microsoft account to sync them to Skydrive or the iPad app.
“Click ‘More Microsoft apps’ to explore additional options in the iOS store including Office Mobile, Skydrive, OneNote and more,” Bing says.
And don’t forget that Bing is now integrated into Siri. Apple revealed the addition of Bing results (and Wikipedia results) with iOS 7 earlier this year. Apple’s operating system update was just released this week, and is now available (if you can actually download it).
