Bing updates iPhone app to make travel planning easy

Bing rolled out an update for the Bing for Mobile iPhone application to bring consumers an improved mapping experience and travel features.

Because Bing users enjoy the Price Predicator feature on the PC, Microsoft has now made it available on the iPhone as well. Additionally, the company has made the Bing Travel Hot Deals feature available via the iPhone application, highlighting the best flight deals around the world.

“The Bing for Mobile iPhone app includes several features that provide a unique mobile experience to customers,” said Camille Van Duyn, a spokeswoman at Microsoft, Redmond, WA.

“Our enhanced travel offering brings the comprehensive Bing Travel experience to mobile, allowing customers to search for the cheapest flight using Bing’s price predictor technology, check the status of a flight, or look for the hottest flight deals – all while on the go,” she said.

Consumers can now see top deals from their home airport as well as last minute and weekend deals, and can easily tell when the prices are available using the interactive Deals calendar.

If users have a specific trip in mind, they can use flight search to find a fare.

The estimated price preview lets users see fares for alternate dates or airports.

Application users can look to the Price Predictor to know when to buy airfare. Consumers can also use Bing Travel’s flight status feature to see if their already-booked flight is on time.Bing iPhone app
