Microsoft is working on a software wrapper which would let developers add Bing search results into their iPhone applications, according to Alessandro Catorcini, senior program manager for the Bing search engine. Catorcini made the announcement at the recent Search Engine Strategies conference in San Jose, California, saying “there is an unneeded step to climb to integrate Bing results in your iPhone app but we want to make that smooth. We want to make it as easy as link [a] library, create an object -- bam -- you're done."
The wrapper is based in Objective C and is in testing right now. It’s expected to become available in just a few weeks. Stay tuned for details.
