What's New in Version 6.0
Welcome to a new Bing. Everything you love about Bing just got better.
• Redesigned homepage. One tap to see restaurants, movies, images, videos, and maps, plus deals and attractions near you.
• More than just web search. When searching, get the answer right away, instead of having to click on web links to find it. The important info from familiar sources, and links to apps to help you get stuff done faster will be at the top.
• Your stuff's still here. Your bookmarks, search history, Bing Rewards credits are all here. Tap the menu to find them.
• Works offline. You can now go back to your bookmarks and search history even when you don’t have internet.
Much Obliged Update
This update to Bing is great. The new "home" button makes searching so much faster. In the past I would usually just close a tab once I had completed my query to get back to the search bar, so the home button is a very welcome addition. The app is also much faster all around (comparable to the Google app's speed).
Feedback: please use the same font throughout the app. The intro screens used the Microsoft font (Segoe) for headers and then the default iPhone font for subtext. Also the random serif font that's used to highlight a top result is a bit jarring and seems out of place. My vote is to use the Microsoft font, similar to the Xbox One Smartglass app.
Overall, great update. I have loved using it so far. Bing users, you will enjoy this and I think new people will as well.
New update takes some getting used too
Just in opinion the new update how ever sleek the surface is, is a little tricky to navigate through. Once on a web page it's hard to get the home or back button to pop up to take me out of the page. It seems every new search opens a new window now and I'm constantly having to check the windows and close them out. The main page doesn't have the three squares of information any more which made it a lot easier to learn in depth of the picture they chose and I really miss that.
Other wise it's still very good to search on with fast loading time and no crashes what so ever. Still easy to earn Bing reward points and I'll just have to learn to navigate the new update. ☺️👍
Love the New Update
Is this a search engine? Yup! Can this be a replacement for the Safari browser? Sure can! Should fans of Bing download this? ABSOLUTELY! I have always been an avid Bing user; the simplicity of the searches and quality of the search results is why I choose Bing over Google any day. Not only do you get points for every search that you do but you also get to redeem those point for prizes. I have probably redeemed at least over $100 worth of gift cards just from searching! I highly recommend not only this app but Bing overall! You'll not find a better search engine anywhere on the web.
