    Default Popular Bing App for iOS Gets Redesigned for iOS 7


    On Monday, Microsoft issued an update to their Bing application for iOS, bringing the popular search application up to version 4.2.

    Bing has received a redesigned interface that takes advantage of the new look and feel of iOS 7, including the taller navigation bar, the new keyboard layout, and transparency among other changes in the mobile operating system. Overall, the new interface is much more simplified and looks a lot cleaner. The application has also received an all-new application icon, which you can see below:



    While a major portion of this update is all about the aesthetics of the application, Microsoft has also improved the functionality of the application by making it so you can easily clear your search history, adding support for animated .gif images, and increasing the amount of time that your Microsoft account can stay signed into the application before signing out automatically and making you sign in again.

    Existing users of the Bing application will find the update under the Updates tab in the App Store. Alternatively, you can download the latest version of the Bing application for free from this App Store link.

    I actually took the bing challenge twice and both times I chose google over bing, so did my mom. They actually did a good job of making it difficult to tell which was google and which was bing, but the results were more accurate with google.

    Also, the "cached" and "similar" links for each result made it a rather dead giveaway that that side was Google (especially if you hover over the "cached" link.) They really should filter those out.
