Microsoft has released the new Bing for Mobile app for iPhone and Android, an update that uses HTML5 to offer a fast mobile search experience whether you're using m.bing.com from your browser or the Bing app.
The update includes several new features such as:
- Maps/List Split View: Provides a dynamic way to synchronize a list such as business listings and directions and a map in a single view making it easy to see the location of what you're searching for. Also works for driving directions and transit.
- Deals: Deal shopping and mobile phone access for local deals from more than 100 deal providers across the US.
- Video Domain: launched last month on m.bing, the new video domain is now available on iPhone.
- Transit/Real-Time: the Android app now features transit routing/real-time transit and news' all features that were previously only available on m.bing.com.
The new app is currently available for iPhone devices and select Android devices in the United States. Microsoft plans to release the same app for RIM and Windows Phone 7 devices in the future.
To get the update, go to the Android Market or iPhone App store to download the latest version.
