Despite some of the failures from Microsoft: The Zune, Windows Vista, and more; there is something new that I can actually call amazing. Microsoft's Bing app for iPad is an all-in-one resource for news, search, maps, images, and tons more.
The Bing App provides an entire experience for users. It easily can be your complete resource for maps, movies, finical news, weather, and tons more. It leverages the swiping power of a touchscreen to allow you to transition between content. Use the voice recognition for hands-free searching. Compared to Google's app, it provides a very immersive experience for the user.
If you are looking for a great all-in-one app that brings you just about everything you'd want to keep in touch with, try the Bing app for iPad.
