Yesterday, in an update Microsoft introduced a redesigned GUI for Bing for iPad. Bing is regarded as image heavy search engine and not applauded for its performance. However, the quality of images are exceptional that is liked by most of the users.
Microsoft updated their application for iPad on 10th December evening, introducing new set of features. The new features include; new simple UI for iOS7, you can save the daily image for wallpaper, access all the images via SkyDrive, Share images, and searched items on facebook, twitter and more, earn Bing reward credits on your searches, improved Bing maps, and Gift Finder to find appropriate gifts for family.
Gift Finder will come in handy because holiday season is around and you can find perfect gifts for your friends and family. Microsoft is still way behind Google number of users, but they have improved their application to compete and by offering reward points.
As you know, Microsoft acquired Nokia recently and they have bigger plans in smart phones market. There is no update on Bing for Windows Phone and features are limited. This new update for iOS will surely increase number of users on iPad.
The new application looks more attractive and easy to use. Despite having heavy image search, still it is able to score high score from the reviewers.
We are expecting Google to launch something to compete with Bing for images because Bing is considered to be better for images. Stay tuned to GSM Reviews for latest news and updates.
