This app isn't as good as google's, but it isn't bad. It is probably good for us that google gets some competition. It might prompt them to add more features.

I will never buy an Android phone with Bing. One of the great things about Android is the intercompatibility of all of the Google features. Google Maps navigation is awesome, Bing has no navigation. I hate using Bing on my computer, so I doubt the results would be any better on my phone. Epic Fail.

You know, a lot of people say bing sucks, and i thought it would to but after downloading it...note i haven't fully used it yet, it seems pretty simple and "sophisticated" so... doesn't hurt to try.

Why? Two reasons. One, it gives competition in the search and capabilities realm to Google. This will make Google further evolve, which makes us happy. Two, Verizon propably got paid some bucks from Microsoft to do it. The thing is, it is just an app. Its optional. I would guess that most people will never touch that widget, but it doesnt hurt the google cloud we all know and love.

Ive seen people use Google to "Google" Bing and then click on the Bing link to use Bing to search.
My jaw drops wide open and I am like... "Why not use Google for search instead?"
Reply - "Bing has way more stuff on it then Google does."
Me - "Are you kidding me?"
