iPhone App Mania with Bing

Since the launch of the Bing for Mobile iPhone app, we’ve heard some great feedback and are excited that Bing is showing up more and more as the search option for those using Safari on iOS4. We’re happy you are giving Bing a try and are enjoying some of the features like social, shopping, and the fresh homepage image every day.

Over the past few months the Bing team has been partnering with a number of companies on various apps for the iPhone. From finding what song was topping the charts when you graduated high school, to testing your movie trivia skills, to seeing what Ryan Seacrest’s favorite songs are – it’s all possible through various iPhone apps brought to you by Bing.

Take a look at some of the latest apps from Bing that you can find in the APP Store:

Top 100s by Year by Bing (music app in partnership with nuTsie)

For a limited time you are able to download this $1.99 app for Free from Bing. What were the top songs for 2009, the year you were born or graduated from high school?

Spin the wheel to find the year you want to hear. Click and listen. View the list to find the #1 song for that year, from 1947 – 2009.

These lists are not solely based on record sales or radio popularity at the time. Instead, there are lists of songs that have stood the test of time based on their initial and lasting popularity, and on their impact on the overall scope of music history.
