Bing Updates iPhone App: Bar Codes and Book Covers

This morning, Microsoft’s Bing iPhone App was updated to include new search and social features. I was able to play around with the new features this morning and I wanted to share my experience with you.

In summary, the new Bing iPhone app includes:

Improved products with landing page, results, details and instant answer
Details with description, reviews and offers
Image/bar code recognition of products
Blended search including updates from your Twitter and Facebook networks when you do a search on the client
“What’s hot” domain with xRank/Twitter tag cloud/feeds
Business List and Map View integration
Just tested this...it recognized barcodes of random stuff I found in the office, even off-brand stuff. And it recognized the covers of a couple books I had lying around. Very nice!

Looking forward to Google releasing Google Goggles for iOS4-supposed to be similar.
