Bing has released new updates for its iPhone app, adding a Bing Translator button, as well as including Bing’s image of the day and trending stories to the Today screen.
With this release, we were able to take advantage of the extensibility possible in iOS8 making it easier to extend the reach and functionality of Bing on iPhone.
The new Translator feature can be accessed by tapping the share icon in the app and then clicking the “Bing Translator” button located on the bottom right of the screen:
Bing noted its Translate button must be added manually to work in Safari:
Another new feature of the app lets users swipe from the top of their iPhone to display the “Today” screen, which Bing says now includes its image of the day and trending stories.
To access this feature, tap “Edit” from the Today screen and add Bing.
The latest version of Bing’s iPhone app is available for download from Apple’s App Store.
