    Now that apps get updated automatically, these posts arnt as impactful. In ios 6 I had 200 updates I never updated, just the important ones.

      But it’s beneficial to users who haven’t used Bing for iPad, it’s useful to discover new features. Or perhaps someone used Bing and didn’t like it the the first go around.

      I’ve never had 200 updates, that’s way too many updates to have. Why even have apps if you are reluctant to update them?

        I didn’t update them because I was cramped for space on the ipad. For how long it takes the ipad 3 to get to the updates page, put in password, then wait to download, that’s a full time job I should have gotten paid for that.
        But bing app I was really into it long ago, but I always went back to Flipboard. Bing app sounds aweful, but it’s actually a cool news app.
