Microsoft launches its application, “Bing for iPad”, allowing users holders of Apple tablet to launch queries through its search engine based on a few new features.
Microsoft would have particularly focused on adapting the content displayed by its search engine to the high quality of the screen resolution of the iPad. Some features are exclusive to this release the tablet from Apple, as the option “Trends”, which informs users about the major news items have caught the attention of Internet users over the past seven days.
Moreover, categories appear at the bottom of the page, on what Microsoft calls the “Call Bar”, offers information categories and are one of the main novelties of this version of Bing iPad. When the user clicks on one of these categories, it is directing to another website offering a variety of subjects including reading he can navigate freely.
Also, images can be arranged by thumbnails displayed full screen without having to load the page. The presence of a microphone icon allows one click to launch a search using their voice.
This is clearly a strategy of seduction on the part of Microsoft, to remind users of the Apple product that its technology is as versatile and effective. Available free on the App Store through iTunes U.S., it was delivered yesterday by the company.
