Microsoft has rolled out a new update to Bing Search which makes it very easy to find out about new, useful and relevant iPhone apps right within Bing search results. Since the feature is now live you can try it right away by running some search query in Bing either on m.bing.com or in the Bing app for iPhone.

This feature lets you discover new apps within the search results itself. When you search for something in Bing from your iPhone, you will be able to see related iPhone Apps along with the regular search results for your query. Here is a screenshot of a few test searches.
