Microsoft Launches Bing for iPad

Microsoft has released an iteration of its Bing search app exclusive to the iPad.

Following in the footsteps of the iPhone and iPod touch versions that have been around for a while, Bing for iPad acts as a more than just a fancy online search engine. The iPad app goes above and beyond basic search capabilities, featuring a customizable home screen filled to the brim with news, traffic, weather, stock quotes and more, as well as searches specific to your current location.

A useful, integrated map views allow users to find places and get directions along with real-time tracking. Road, traffic, or aerial views straight from “Bing Maps” are available in most locations. The hub also lets users follow current news and trending (Bing) search topics in a rich, optimized interface that sports clean images and a magazine-style layout. The application incorporates voice-activated search and easy navigation between Bing results and web pages by displaying search results framed within a Bing search bar.

Bing for iPad isĀ available from the App Store as a free download.
