Microsoft has released the first official Bing App for Android based mobiles and it is now available to download for all Verizon users. Some features in this android Bing app are:
When you open the Bing app, you see image of the day on your phone. The image contains clickable hotspots that you can discover and explore the related trivia. In case you have missed any image, you can view the images up to last 7 days.
You can switch to image search or web search any time in the results. The images are scrollable upto endless results.
Besides the search field, you will also find a mic icon. Hold down this icon, speak any word like movies and find your result without typing any word.
The Android app also has a pretty smooth mapping feature. First, Bing will automatically find your current location. You can then easily discover new places by category such as restaurants, banks, theaters and you can choose whether you want walking or driving directions. Swipe through each step of your directions, and check out how fast the map pans and zooms. For times when you only have one hand free and can’t pinch, there is the handy zoom-out button.
In addition to these features, Bing also provides local listing review, ratings and news.
But rather than drone on about them, just download the app from your Android’s Marketplace, give it a spin and let us know what you think.
