Looking to make a decision today? Make your search more human with Bing, the decision engine designed to work beautifully on your Android phone. This app brings the comfort of Bing’s powerful search engine to your mobile device, complete with categories such as Images, Movies, Maps, Local, News, and Directions. Discover what’s relevant near you and easily complete your daily tasks using Bing, wherever you are.
Find shops, images, movies, flight information, weather forecast, and walking, or driving directions with up-to-date traffic conditions. Add the widget to your phone’s home screen for instant search results, including the ability to speak your search without even opening the app.
Bookmark any image from the Internet by tapping on the menu button and selecting the Bookmark option. This will instantly save a copy of the image to your phone’s Gallery section. Use the sharing feature to share any search results with your friends using any of your social networking apps such as Facebook and Twitter. Choose to have the app automatically detect your location or set a location manually (great for privacy advocates).
Looking to head out on the town and catch a movie? Tap into the Movies section and Bing provides you with the latest releases playing now in theaters near you. Flick your finger to scroll through the list complete with movie title, genre, rating, length, and rating out of 5 stars. Tapping on the movie of your choice, you’ll find a quick synopsis to go along with trailers, theaters near you, reviews, and show times.
Bing lets you pinpoint your location using the same Bing Maps for Enterprise framework you’d find on your desktop. Type in or speak an address to find the quickest route from your current location. You can even type in a general term to find a new location that might interest you.
