Microsoft is all set to give green signal to Bing app for Android and iOS before rolling it out to its very own Windows Phone platform. This was stated officially by the company this week, in a blog post. The post also throws light upon the most significant features which includes deals service, real-time transit feeds and a refreshed maps module.
With the will of providing greater stability across mobile browser and app interfaces, Redmond has based its apps on HTML5 rather than Silverlight. Don’t get disheartened if you have Windows Phone running on your device, because Microsoft did mention Windows Phone 7, but at the end of post. “We’re working to release the same consistent experience for RIM and Windows Phone 7 devices in the future, and will share more details as they become available.”
At first, this decision may sound fairly counterintuitive, but it also makes a lot of sense because the Android and iOS has a huge fan following. To push the Bing apps to as much audience as possible, Microsoft is eager to shut its eyes from the OS combat. Users of Android and iOS can access the app from now.
