According to the blog post, the Bing team was inspired to think of a new way to search on a tablet because of what they refer to as the “painful” experience of searching on a tablet when you’re in the middle of reading something. They reckon that simply copying and pasting text from a web page into a search box can take up to nine steps on the iPad, but if you use Lasso, it will take only two steps.
The newly released update also includes an enhanced movie experience where you can now view multiple showtime days and movie theatres, as well as the ability to swipe through the previous six Bing homepage pictures, plus many more tweaks and improvements.
