Now that Bing is available in the Android Market for all carriers, Microsoft is making sure its premiere search app is the best it can be. The big M has updated their app to bring users these new features:
- What’s Nearby: Bing will automatically detect “what’s nearby” and present dynamic and full category search pages.
- Bookmark Images: We know how much you love Bing images, and now you can bookmark any image result from the Web to the device.
- Expand Your Search: The Search Widget allows you to search third party apps (e.g. Yelp), in addition to contacts, apps, audio files and the Web. (Only apps with registered data can be surfaced in search results.)
- Search, Share, Decide and Book: To make planning a night out easier, share search results with friends using any loaded app that can accept and share content by using the “share” command. And, with the integration of OpenTable and GrubHub into the Bing for Mobile search results, you can make reservations or order take out – without switching between apps.
The Microsoft app has been under fire recently from the Android community (you guys) -- especially those on Verizon, who have been forced to use Bing's search functionality in many of Verizon's new Android phones. But to be honest, the app is really not that bad -- REALLY. Read our review here. Now play nice, and give it a chance. [Bing Community Blog]
