If you develop applications for the iPhone or for Mac, you now have the ability to query Bing in your application. Microsoft has released a Bing iPhone and Mac SDK. You can download the SDK from Codeplex.

Over at the Bing developer blog, they're touting the advantages of the SDK:

  • The ability to easily query Bing from within your Cocoa or Cocoa Touch application.
  • Perform both synchronous and asynchronous queries.
  • Search Bing for Web, Image, Video, News, and Phonebook results.

I'm not a software developer, but my husband develops for all sorts of languages, libraries and frameworks, so I asked him what the significance of this SDK is.

He told me that instead of having to study a search engine and write your own code to meet its expectations, you can call the Bing SDK, which does a lot of the work for you.

What do you think of Microsoft releasing a Bing SDK for Mac development? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
