Microsoft has just launched a new version of its Bing app on the App Store.
This new version, stamped 3.0, takes full advantage of HTML 5 to standardize the possibilities offered by the Androd and iOS platforms. Quite surprisingly, Windows Phone 7 is not yet entitled to an update to the Bing application (Microsoft just said that the update will be available for Windows Phone 7 and BlackBerry later this year).
Among the new features offered by Bing 3.0 for iOS, we will first note a revised interface for quick access to the latest news, sports videos, or the latest trendy videos on the net. You can also see what your Facebook friends' favorite sites are, quickly find promotional offers (from Groupon, Living Social or Restaurant.com), easily find a place and set up a route in just a few seconds.
For now, Bing 3.0 is only available on the US App Store and for free.
note that the Bing search engine is included Safari Mobile since iOS 4.
We discuss it on the forum.
