Bing for Mobile Browser Updated


Microsoft today launched updates to the Bing for Mobile browse (m.bing.com) making it easier for users to get and view information while on the go.

New features in this update include better and faster image search, real-time transit and directions, app search for the iPhone, and more. Utilizing HTML5, the new features are offered on Smartphone browsers for the iPhone and Android. Windows Phone 7 devices will also be able to take advantage of the updates as soon as Microsoft support HTML5 later this year.

New features:

Transit Directions and Real-Time Transit
Microsoft added transit directions to m.bing.com, providing the duration of the trip based on walking, transit and traffic information. In addition, real-time transit information is now available for Boston, San Francisco, Seattle, Chicago, and Los Angeles. The real-time updates allow commuters to see if public transit is on schedule, early or delayed, with predictions for arrival times.

Image Search
Microsoft also improved Image Search making it faster and smoother.

Shopping
Shopping questions are answered faster with the new re-organized shopping experience designed to make it easier for users to get their shopping questions answered, comparison shop, and discover product details and user reviews while on the go.

Weather Update
Microsoft added Weather Autosuggest and Instant Answers to the search bar.

The Weather tab was also udated to make it easier to avoid bad weather. With four different forecast views, users have the option of seeing an overview for the day, an hourly forecast, a 10 day forecast or even the current weather pattern on a map.

App Search
When searching on m.bing.com with an iPhone, Bing will return a list of relevant iPhone apps that fit the specifications of a user's specific device, in addition to the normal search results.

Movies
When searching for movies, Bing has organized them by time and nearest theatre, along with reviews, synopsis, trailers and additional information to help users decide what movie fits their mood.
