In a post on the Bing Search blog, Microsoft also states that the Bing app will come preloaded on the Samsung Continuum and Motorola Citrus on Verizon as well.
When we reviewed the Bing app on Verizon in August, our Brad McCarty said that “you are likely to be annoyed” for one major reason: when you search for something using the Bing app, the app makes you open that link in the app’s browser, instead of in your browser of choice on your phone, which of course then means that you can’t get out of the app to use the other Google-centric parts of your Android phone.
Otherwise, however, the app has a lot of nice features, including:
- Image of the day with hotspots
- Endless scrolling search
- Integrated voice search
- Bing Maps, with Points of Interest
- Local ratings
- Local reviews
The app comes with an Android widget as well, which is always a nice touch.
