Microsoft launches four new Bing apps for Windows Phone
Microsoft must be well aware that its Windows Phone platform is doing good but not great. The modest growth in Windows Phone sales recently is no match for the continued surging interest in Android across the globe and iPhone in the United States.

To make up Microsoft needs more and better applications, building up on the 160 000 it already has in its Windows Phone Marketplace.

That’s why the company has just launched five new applications bringing you news, weather, sports and finance information with Live Tile integration and the typical modern user interface. Check the all out below.

I read the headline and thought they released four because it takes four times longer to find something using bing.

IMO Bing sounds better as does Yahoo.

I downloaded Sports, News and Weather and they all work like a charm. The apps have some missing features, but these are the first versions and will probably be updated soon.

Shame there is a lot of hating because it isn't a Google product..

I don't get it either. I got the News and weather app as I'm not really into sports or the stock market. The News App is good. The weather is too much for me. I like the App called "Weather" better for it's simplicity. It's all metro, no images of real clouds etc. Full Metro at it's best. Also no splash screen when launching it.
