Bing has released a new iPad app. The main theme, Bing appears to be looking to get across with it is that of more content from the homepage – or at least easier access to it.
“Since launching, Bing has been focused on helping people stop searching and start deciding – regardless of where they are,” a representative for Bing tells WebProNews. “The Bing for iPad app goes beyond the traditional search experience, offering a new visually rich way to search the Web.”
“The experience is designed specifically to capture the fluid and intuitive nature of touch on a large, high resolution screen – allowing you to quickly browse news, movies, weather, local business listing and much more,” he adds. “And, you can do it all with the swipe of a finger – no more back button.”

The app’s opening page shows the local weather, top news, maps, movies in theaters, top trends and stock market news. There is also a “Trends” icon that lets you click on a picture and get the latest headlines, including breaking news, gossip, fashion, sports news, etc.
For Maps, you can click the Map icon on the homepage to find your exact location and what’s nearby.
The free Bing for iPad app is available for download today in the Apple App Store.
