Microsoft released a new version of its Bing app for the iPhone and iPod touch and it incorporates Bing Travel features for the first time.
When mobile users click on Travel, they can conduct flight searches and also view the estimated price for alternative airports and dates.
Consumers can utilize Bing Travel's predictive technology to see recommendations on whether they should "buy now" or wait, and they also can see displays of top deals from their local airports.
Consumers can also view a flight status feature to see if their flights are on time.
Separately, Bing upgraded the app's mapping features, giving more prominence to information about traffic, business listings and neighborhood labels. The feature also enables users to switch between map and list views.
