Microsoft has released an update to its Bing application for iOS devices. Going beyond the basic search engine features now included in iOS4, the Bing 1.2 app brings support for conducting searches by scanning barcodes and cover art with the iPhone camera and connecting to Facebook and Twitter accounts. The new version now combines results from users’ social networks when searching the web and allows users to share their search results via Facebook, Twitter or e-mail. An expanded shopping section with reviews, ratings and prices is also now available as well as additional clips and trailers when searching movies. Bing 1.2 is available from the U.S. App Store as a free download.
