Microsoft has been surprisingly active on the Android platform of late, especially considering it has a lot on its plate on the mobile front, with the recent release of the Windows Phone 7 Mango software. Hot on the heels of the Hotmail app we looked at last month, the company has released this app for its Bing search engine.
Featuring a similar interface to the normal web-based search engine, it presents you with a new large format picture each day. It also includes price comparison features, Bing maps and directions, movie reviews and location information. What’s more, there’s also voice recognition built-in so you can search just by talking into your phone.
Microsoft needs to fix a few bugs that have crept in with this recent update, but this is a solid and useful search app.
