Bing for iPad Gets Updated: New Lasso Search Tool

Bing first introduced it’s app for the Apple iPad back in April 2011 and it has come a long way from then. Bing search app received a lot of positive ratings because of it’s all graphical interface which gave a more bold statement than Google’s white and simple Search app. Since the iPad has a big screen, Bing for iPad takes advantage of the display and provides an all screen graphic interface that is very attractive.

Due to the tremendous response to Bing for iPad and all the positive feedback and suggestions, Bing has now updated it’s iPad app, making it more beautiful, faster and easier to use. Apart from random bug fixes and a little change in the user interface, Bing has also introduced a new way to search for terms through web pages. We all know how difficult it is to search for terms that you don’t understand on a page when you’re using the default Safari browser or the Google Search App. There’s copying text, opening a new page, pasting it, searching for it and then you get the results. Although it does seem long when you write it down, but it’s actually faster in real. But why would want to do that if you could directly search for terms from the webpage.

Bing for iPad update brings along a new tool called Lasso, which enables searching for terms from a web page using a much simpler method in just two steps. All you have to do is select the term using the Lasso tool and it will automatically search for the term on Bing.

That’s an interesting way to start a search, and a much easier one too. That’s not all that’s new. You can also slide through the last six pages/websites that you opened plus Movies also shows showtimes and theaters around you. Watch the video after the break to see the new features;

That’s all for now, but Bing has promised that this is just the beginning and there are lot of new things that’ll be introduced soon. Until then go download Bing for iPad and experience a new type of Search.
