Microsoft Gives Bing The iOS 7 Treatment Along With New Logo And Color Palette
At long last, Microsoft has caught up with the trends and updated its official Bing iOS app for iOS 7. A day before the official launch of iOS 7, the tech corporation unveiled a new design and logo for its search engine. At the same time, it issued a major update to Bing for iOS. That update didn't incorporate the redesign, though. Rather, the update added a new center homepage button for quickly accessing Popular Now, Maps, Images, and Weather. It also brought streamlined search, SkyDrive integration for images and bookmarks, and other improvements. Then, earlier this month, Bing for iOS received another update. But while it did bring iOS 7 compatibility and several minor interface tweaks, the update didn't bring a revamped interface that's in line with the design of the latest iteration of Apple's mobile operating system.

Of course, the new update introduces a cleaner and simple design based on iOS 7, complete with flat areas, lightweight glyphs, and blurred backgrounds. In addition, the update brings Bing for iOS on par with Bing on the Web as it now has the new Bing logo and color palette. The new version of Bing is available now in the App Store for free. The app is optimized for iPhone and iPod touch running iOS 4.3 or later. The app's new update also extends the period within which a Microsoft account can stay signed in, adds support for animated GIFs, and allows clearing of the local search history.
