And the Microsoft search engine has taken on both with its recent Bing app for the iPad.
The free app is rich in details and graphics. It "gets" the beauty of the iPad.
Bing graphically shows the areas that you most want to access from a portable tablet: News, Weather, Movies, Movies, Trends, and Finance.
The new app is available in the Apple iTunes Store HERE.
Sadly, the Google app for the iPad looks like it's from 1995. Dull and boring. Uh oh.
And while Apple's native Safari browser is a good tool, you'll find yourself using the new Bing app for iPad for many more uses.
