Microsoft Bing yesterday announced an updated version of the Bing app for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Among its many new features, the new version of the app allows users to connect their Facebook and Twitter accounts and view combined status updates from within the app.
In addition, the updated Bing app will include relevant social network results along with traditional web results. When searching for a movie, for example, the results will feature official movie show times along with comments from social networking sites that friends may have said about the movie. The updated Bing app for the iPhone and iPod Touch also features visual scanning, the ability to scan barcodes and cover art to view descriptions, reviews, prices and links to merchant websites.
People can download the update today using iTunes.
