Microsoft's Bing Hits the iPhone

Microsoft's Bing application rolled out onto Apple's App Store on Wednesday, giving iPhone and iPod touch a native application for using the Redmond-based company's online search engine.

Bing for the iPhone and iPod touch recognizes spoken words and sentences as search terms, can display driving directions, shows maps, movies and images in search results, and more.

Bing is Microsoft's Internet search engine that's designed to help users find locations, businesses and other services.

The Bing app is free and available for download at Apple's iTunes-based App Store.
