Bing on iPhone!

On August 13, 2009

Its true, it seems Microsoft has announced that they need to make it easier for developers to add Bing search results to their iPhone applications.

Although developers can make a connection to the Bing search engine now, the process requires unnecessary steps and according to Microsoft;

"Right now, there is an unneeded step to climb to integrate Bing results in your iPhone app but we want to make that smooth," he said. "We want to make it as easy as link [a] library, create an object — bam — you’re done."

The new library is being tested now and should be available in a few weeks said Alessandro Catorcini, senior program manager.

Although Bing was only released in June, its been gaining steady ground for Internet search traffic, and with the new Yahoo deal, this new iPhone library may not be such a bad idea.
