Bing Launches Maps Apps for World Tour, Oodle, Foursquare
"Just about every month, Bing Maps gets a makeover in the form of new map imagery for locations worldwide," a representative for Bing tells WebProNews. "The World Tour map app brings these updates to life using the Bing Map Apps framework, Silverlight and Azure."
"Oodle.com, one of the fastest growing classifieds services is creating an app that will map rental housing on Bing Maps which will be available today," he says. "The Oodle Rentals app will pull-in Oodle data, allowing users to look at various rental housing available from Oodle.com."
"Last week at SES New York, we announced our partnership with foursquare and plans to roll out the foursquare Everywhere app on Bing Maps in the coming weeks," he notes. "Today, the app will be live and ready for use."
That’s not all Microsoft announced for Bing at SES. They also announced an update to the Bing user interface, which adapts the page and search results based on the intent of the query.
"We’ll be testing a new user interface that includes new design concepts that move the Quick Tabs functionality to the top of the screen, so customers see a more visual and organized page," the company said.
