The Bing app for iPad
Fourteen months ago, Microsoft released an iPad app called, succinctly, Bing for iPad. I’ve used it quite a bit, and it works well.
Here’s the home screen for the Bing for iPad app, which you can download free at the Apple AppStore. Although the screen here is limited to 1024 x 768 pixels (I shot this on an iPad 2), you can see some uncanny similarities. (Click to enlarge.) Tap the weather tile and you get an hourly and a ten-day forecast, just like the Metro Bing Weather app. Tap the Finance tile and you can put your choice of three stocks or indices on the screen. No big deal.
