Microsoft's Bing For the iPhone is Awesome

Bing For the iPhone Is Pretty Awesome

I tend to be a Google girl when it comes to choosing a search engine, but after reading about the new Bing iPhone app, I decided to try it out on my iPhone. The verdict? I was hooked the second I opened the app!

The app is free to download and is as pretty on the iPhone as it is on the computer screen. The app mirrors Bing.com in look and function — from the daily image and trivia to links for images, movies, maps, businesses, news, and directions searches. By far my favorite feature of the app is the voice search. You can search the Internet or maps by talking into the phone.

Another great feature: movies. Since the app uses your current location, one tap on "movies" from the Bing home screen pulls up movies playing near you, complete with plot summary and cast information. The only thing I'd like to see added to the app is Bing's travel search, which I love. Guess I'll have to make do with the new Kayak app for now.
