Microsoft has released Bing for Mobile app to Android and iOS before launching it on its own Windows Phone platform.

The update uses HTML5 to blend the mobile browse experience with the app experience so you get a consistent and fast mobile search experience whether you’re using m.bing.com from your browser or the Bing app, according to the Bing Blog.

The update includes new features such as:
Maps/List Split View: Provides a dynamic way to synchronize a list such as business listings and directions and a map in a single view making it easy to see the location of what you’re searching for. Also works for driving directions and transit.
Deals: One-stop deal shopping and convenient mobile phone access for local deals from more than 100 deal providers across the US.
Video Domain: launched last month on m.bing, the new video domain is now available on iPhone.
Transit/Real-Time: the Android app now features transit routing/real-time transit and news– all features that were previously only available on m.bing.com.

To get the update, go to the Android Market (Android users on Verizon can go here) or iPhone App store to download the latest version
