Bing Now Available As Native iPad App



Bing has just been released for the iPad. It sure as heck looks gorgeous. Loading it up, you don’t just get Bing search or their usual flourish of a gorgeous wallpaper, but Bing’s app will also give you a quick look at the local weather, news, movies, trends, finances and more.

Bing’s done a pretty good job differentiating itself for the better from Google in the last year, and we’ve even heard the occasional rumble that Apple would choose to get into bed with Microsoft and make Bing the default search engine instead of Google. That’s unlikely for a number of reasons, especially since Apple doesn’t view Google as much of a threat as Amazon right now, but it does mean that Bing’s worthy of your attention, at the very least.
