Not that I expect many of you to care, but Microsoft’s just released a pretty decent update to their Bing app for Android. New geolocation features help tailors your search to your surroundings, the app will be able to traverse other apps with registered data (contacts list, apps, audio files), and more help round out what some might otherwise call just a decent experience. The full list is below, but if you’re a fan of bing, you should be able to find the latest version in the Android market today.
- 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.
