into the news, trends, people and technology behind Bing.
We are excited to announce another exciting update to the Bing for Mobile iPhone and iPod Touch app. Below we have highlighted a few of the new features that will be available soon in the Bing for Mobile iPhone App in the App Store:
We know consumers love the Price Predicator on the PC, and now they can find it along with other great Bing Travel features on their iPhone. From the Bing for Mobile iPhone app’s home screen, simply click on Travel. You can now see top deals from your home airport as well as last minute and weekend deals, and using the interactive Deals calendar, you can easily see when those great prices are available. If you have a specific trip in mind, you can use flight search to find a great fare. Utilize the “estimated price” preview to see fares for alternate dates or airports, and look to the Price Predictor to know when to buy your airfare. Or if you’re already headed for the airport, use Bing Travel’s flight status feature to see if your flight is on time.
Map Update –
Looking at a map on your phone with multiple layers of information could be quite difficult. With this release of the iPhone app, we have redesigned the mapping experience from the ground up. We enhanced the backdrop so information on the map such as traffic details, business listings, pushpins, labels, etc. could pop. We increased the font size corresponding to larger roads and added neighborhood labels so you can easily identify and convey locations in cities. We have also added what’s Nearby with enhanced map and labels so you can “fly” through a neighborhood and quickly find a local listing. And best of all, you can easily switch between the map view and the list view on the map.
In addition to these new features, make sure to give the voice search, social, image search and visual scanning a try as well if you haven’t tried it already.
Download the update using iTunes today and try out the new features!
