Bing – find deals, check prices, and search web, images, videos & news
By Microsoft Corporation
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Finding things to do on your iPhone can feel like a scavenger hunt across multiple apps. The Bing search app brings together the best of search while connecting you to the apps you trust to help you ‘find’ and ‘do’ faster and easier.
• Tap it. Discover it. Do it. Tap “Near me” for restaurants, attractions, gas prices, groceries and much more. Faster and easier to find new local places to love and deals you won’t want to miss. Or go into “Deals” to browse offers, discounts, and coupons at retailers near you.
• Find it. Watch it. Book it. Discover great movies to watch, read reviews and tap to stream. Prefer to go out? Find new movies and showtimes and get tickets. Browse through restaurants, book a table and, when you are ready, get directions or a taxi right from the app.
• Scan it. Compare it. Buy it. Use the built-in barcode scanner to review products and compare prices at select major retailers (eg, Amazon, Walmart, Home Depot, Target); tap to buy it online. One quick scan can save you both time and money.
Here’s what the press says about the Bing app:
• PC Mag: (http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2497239,00.asp, December 31, 2015) “Bing makes taking the next steps easier, with its app integrations. Add the bonuses of QR scanning, more-accessible privacy controls, Bing Rewards for gift cards and more, and you've got our Editors' Choice for iPhone search apps.”
• Engadget: Bing for iPhone makes it easy to jump from search straight to your apps (http://www.engadget.com/2015/11/18/microsoft-bing-for-iphone-app-integration-update/, November 18, 2015)
“the new Bing app definitely feels like a more "mobile-native" search experience. Between voice integration, the quick access to local info without having to type and the integration with your app collection, Bing for iPhone is definitely worth a look if you want a deeper search experience.”
• The Verge: Microsoft overhauls its Bing for iPhone app to take on Google (http://www.theverge.com/2015/11/18/9754310/microsoft-bing-iphone-app-update, November 18, 2015)
“The new Bing for iPhone app does a good job of providing useful results that aren’t just a list of text or Wikipedia links. For films, Bing lists their Rotten Tomatoes and IMDB ratings, and even iOS apps like Netflix or iTunes where you can buy or rent titles. It’s even clever enough to remove options for Spotify for artists like Taylor Swift that keep their latest albums off of most streaming services.”
• Cult of Mac: Bing’s redesigned iPhone app focuses on instant answers (http://www.cultofmac.com/398079/bing-iphone-redesign/,
November 18, 2015)
“When you conduct a search, it’s clear Bing tries very hard to figure out what you’re looking for and just give it to you. Displaying search results is the last resort.” “Finding what you’re looking for now takes much less time.”

Don't like the change
I don't know if this was an intentional update or if I ran into a glitch, but whenever I try to search something, I only get a search result with videos or images. If I, for example, am trying to look up a recipe, I don't want to just see images of the dish. Or if I'm looking up information about a celebrity, I don't just want to see videos of them. I expect to see a list of webpages with the OPTION of seeing images and videos like before. But instead, I'm getting a small selection of images and videos and a small list of related searches. And that's it.
If this was an intentional change, it was a very silly one. You just significantly limited what type of information people can see. And because of this, I'm considering ditching the Bing search and re-installing Google. As much as I like getting reward points and Bing's overall design, it's just not worth it if I can't even search for what I want.
If this is a glitch, then please fix it!
The new design is awesome.
I love the look and layout. I also love the ability to clear search history using the menu and love that they included the settings in the menu which gives you the ability to configure the results.
The only thing that I would want to change is when looking at your open searches page, which lists all of your searches, selecting the X to close that search is not as functional. Too many times it will open that search page instead of closing it out. Needs the same functionality as the iPhone which is easy to close out pages with a simple swipe upwards.
It's a Beauty❤️
The one thing that attracts me to this app rather than the Google app is it's design. I love that it has background images and attractive buttons unlike Google's plain and boring design. I was a Google only user for years.. A week ago I decided to use Bing and so far, I've been pleased with it. We'll see how it does in my daily life. Google has very updated and functional technology. I'm really hoping Bing can keep up functionally with Google's tech, because I am really digging the design and beauty. Score 1 for Microsoft. 😎👍🏼👌🏼💯✌🏼❤️
