Bing Updates iPhone App With New Homepage Menu, Improved Sharing & More
Bing rolled out an update to its iPhone app late Tuesday night that features a new homepage menu, additional sharing options and improved syncing across platforms.
Bing 4.1 for iPhone features a new homepage menu that’s accessible from the bottom of the app display. It offers quicker access to
- Bing Maps
- Bing Image Search
- Bing Trends — featuring the top seven trending searches each day
- Bing Weather
The updated app also includes new sharing options for Facebook and Twitter, and the ability to save images — whether from Bing Image Search or the daily Bing homepage image — to your iPhone’s camera roll. (You must be signed in to a Microsoft account for that image-saving feature to work.) The older Bing app only allowed sharing via email and text message.
Here’s a look at the new Bing iPhone app homepage:
The app also allows for syncing bookmarks and saved images across the iPhone app, Bing’s apps for the iPad and Android devices, and the desktop/PC Bing search engine.
One thing the new app doesn’t yet feature? Bing’s new logo. It still sports the previous red and white icon.
The full list of new features is available in the iTunes App Store.
