Microsoft on Tuesday released its first official Bing app [free, App Store] for Apple's iPhone and iPod touch handsets. Until now, Bing has only been offered as an integrated search function in third-party apps. The new app is the first to offer a dedicated interface.
Bing for the iPhone includes map, movie and image search functions, as well as voice commands, which like Google Mobile launch a search based on a spoken sentence or address. Some navigation support is built into the app, giving users a choice between driving and walking directions.
