APP WATCH: Bing for Mobile Browse updated

Today it launches in the UK, and Bing for Mobile Browse has also updated for its first appearance on these shores.

Available for iPhone, Android and RIM phones, as well as any others that support HTML5, the new version is more social and, for the UK, more UK-specific. So expect a redesigned homepage over here, along with enhanced local listings, auto-suggest, image search, and driving and walking directions (and real-time transit in London). Oh yes, a search engine too, which might have got lost in the mix.

But now we have those 'social' enhancements too. Share on Facebook for a start, which allows you to share images, business details and apps with Facebook friends, which they can 'like' if they so wish. There's also the option to access trending topics too, if you want to see what everyone is searching for right now. After all, who wants to be out of the loop?

Other improvements includes easy access to your search history, one-touch access to the latest news stories of the day (with easy scrolling and a breakdown in categories as well as improvements in maps), essentially getting business listings and directions in a single view. The map will also highlight the business you are interested in on the map.

All for free and available to download now from the relevant app store.
