iBing got final approval from Apple sometime yesterday and has made its way into the app store:

It’s cool in and of itself that MS has made another iPhone app. There are features like voice search, multiple location view, saved locations… all the good stuff you’d want in a search app. It also shows off the daily image from Bing.com for a little bit more sparkle in your search experience.
It is cooler still that the experience is built on top of the Seadragon iPhone app; check out the maps feature and you’ll be able to see the Seadragon goodness. I recommend wi-fi over 3G (and don’t even get me started on Edge), ’cause AT&T is… not that great, but even over the wire, you’ll still get a usable, fluid experience. The Bing guys have really taken our philosophy of the user never waiting to heart and shipped it.
If you’re having a hard time finding good uses for the app, the fellas over at TechCruch have a suggestion or two (mildly NSFW).
