Bing For Android Brings New Look And Facebook Sharing

With the Bing app for Android, Microsoft is attempting to overcome the difficult challenge of enticing Android users to use their search rather than Google. Microsoft’s answer to the challenge is a standalone app that is graphically appealing and provides an easy way to search for things near one’s location.

A new version of the Bing app for Android is now available, and as you can see in the screen shot, the UI is noticeably different. Windows Phone users might recognize the large fonts, lower case, and scrolling list because it is very much like the Windows Phone UI. You simply slide your finger up and down on the screen to scroll through the list and then tap the option you desire.
