Today, Microsoft released an open source software developer kit that’ll make the lives of iPhone developers… uhm, at least those who want to build iPhone apps that can access Bing.
Using the kit, developers can create an app that searches Bing for Web info, news, videos, images and phonebook results. It can also be incorporated to apps for Macintosh computers.
There are already several apps that use Bing, but with this official SDK from Microsoft will make bring the search engine to more apps.
The default search engine for iPhone’s Safari browser, with an option to switch to Yahoo if they wish to.
Users who wants Bing have to type in the URL. This SDK eliminates that need.
