Bing Travel Beta app now out for Windows Phone
Bing has reinforced its presence on Windows Phone with a new addition to the family, the Bing Travel app. Currently in a beta state, the Microsoft-made travel guide brings some of the best WP-style visuals around, complete with a range of functionality for travelers, such as news and tourism articles, flight planning (fares, arrivals, departures), searching for destinations and nearby attractions, weather data, and more.
As the “beta” tag points out, some of the functionality is still rough around the edges. Users should be prepared for unexpected blank pages and the occasional hick-ups. While Bing Travel Beta currently isn't your best option for a mobile travel guide, Microsoft will continue to look after the app and the finished product should serve you nicely on a trip.
If you want to try Bing Travel Beta, head to the Windows Phone Store from the link below. The app requires a Windows Phone 8 device.
