Bing iPhone app hands down classiest, nicest Microsoft designed product ever.

bingSay what you will about Microsoft and Bing (ok, both are questionable) but Redmond’s ultra new Bing search app for iPhone is hot — at least visually speaking that is. While the styling is simplistic yet modern and basically feels right at home on the iPhone platform, it is actually pretty lust worth from someone with an eye for visual candy. I’m curious to see how many times (if multiple attempts were needed) to get a design tat was up to Apple’s standards before they’d approve it. Speaking of which, we were pretty much guaranteed a Bing app. Any more shifty ban hammers on seemingly innocent apps, much less a competitors app, would unleash even more crap from pandora’s box.

Feature wise, it’s pretty standard fair that’s to be expected of a top of the line search provider. Opening the app will present users with the same colorful and eye catching backgrounds found on the desktop variant, voice search options, and six search categories to choose from:

  • Images
  • Movies
  • Maps
  • Businesses
  • News
  • Directions

I’ve been messing around with Bing for iPhone for roughly 20 minutes and now and don’t have anything bad to or negative to say. On that note, how would you feel if Microsoft started going all gung-ho on the iPhone platform and increasingly turning it’s back on WinMo? Interesting topic starter. Have at it.
