Bing for iPhone released

Microsoft's 'decision engine', Bing, is a nice search engine for those supportive of the Redmond software giant. It packs some features not available with others, and today, it's also available on the iPhone, similar to the offering already produced by Google.

We initially reported on Microsoft's plan to bring Bing and Messenger to the iPhone about a week ago, noting that these apps will add to Microsoft's Tag and Seadragon offerings currently on the App Store. We've given it a quick run, taken some screenshots, and tried some of the features.

The application opens with Bing's daily image, complete with facts about what they're displaying, which is rather nice feature. You can opt to search for images, movies, maps, businesses, news, directions, or just plain ol' search, depending on what you're after; the maps feature works well, with the location part of it working quickly and accurately. Unfortunately, many of the features wouldn't work on the iPhone we tested on, regardless of having restarted the device, though TechCrunch stated that it worked perfectly. We've included a few screenshots of the app below, or otherwise, you can find Bing on the App Store here.
