Microsoft might be working on creating a rival tablet operating system but that hasn’t stopped the boys from Redmond bringing its Bing app to Apple’s iPad. This is the fifth app which has come out of Microsoft for the iPhone/iOS platform, the other four being OneNote for iPhone, Bing for iPhone, Seadragon Mobile, and Microsoft Tag.
Now a universal app, Bing is only available on the US App Store at the moment but is still free.
The new iPad interface comes complete with the now obligatory Bing image and offers at-a-glance access to weather, movies and news as well as trends.
Trends in particular are interesting as this opens a fancy interface not unlike Flipboard and voice search is also present for those partial to talking to their hardware. It’s also great to see Microsoft embracing the world of touch, with much swiping to be done throughout the app. This certainly feels more than just an up-scaled iPhone app as so many developers are guilty of doing.
Bing is free and available now. Download it from here!
