Just recently, I got a request from one of my readers asking me the question on how to use the software bing in iPhone. Well, I’m more than happy to do his request as I present to you this well researched, informative and educational article on the said topic. Comments too are very much welcome! So, read on folks! Have you encountered bing lately? Well, bing is not a person’s name that you may look for or befriend. Bing is the latest wonder application from Microsoft, one of the world’s giant computer and software company. This is the toughest competitor of google and yahoo in the field of internet online search engine or portal. Good news for iphone users, Bing can be downloaded for free from bing.com. You can find in this site the coolest and happiest new features for your iphone.
The unique and very efficient capability of bing as a search engine makes it very popular and revolutionary. Thousands of comments comparing the performance of bing and google emerged like mushrooms in the field of computer technology. Apparently, bing has a greater edge than google in so many ways.
Bing as a search tool is very sensitive when it comes to the type of information that you want to look for in the internet. The results from Bing are pretty more accurate, interesting, very timely, clear and obviously relevant to the searcher. For instance, if you type in the search box of bing the word school, the result would be a page containing major links to famous universities worldwide and the ability to give you essential details such as the school’s expertise, tuition rate, courses etc.,of those famous schools in your area.
Bing gives a wide array of very valuable links not only about the topic you are looking from formal websites, but even informal information coming from famous social networks like facebook and twitter. For example, if you type in the search box where do you want to eat tonight in India, Bing will connect you to various links from peoples’ responses, information and first hand experiences regarding your question via facebook and twitter. For instance, you will be told by these people from facebook and twitter who are mostly your friends, to try going to this and that restaurant because they have this affordable and delicious or exotic dish.
Here now is the step-by-step process on how to use bing:
- After installing the free Bing software via bing.com to your iPhone, simply tap on the icon for Bing.
- After tapping the bing icon, it will automatically load and you will see eventually the logo or the Bing image interface.

- The most innovative part is the microphone icon! By tapping this icon, you simply should speak the word or question you wish to look for without typing them anymore in the search box! Quite amazing indeed! Fantastic!
