A man who fostered a great reputation in the geospatial community by founding OpenStreetMap, "a free editable map of the whole world," has started working for Microsoft. The company announced today that Steve Coast will assume the impressive title "Principal Architect of Bing Mobile."
Microsoft has announced the launch of its first Bing for Mobile Android app for Verizon customers. The app is available for download in the Android Marketplace on Verizon Android devices.
The app homepage will look somewhat familiar to Bing users, as it will include the Bing image of the day with the clickable hotspots, much like the desktop version. You can swipe through past images.
The endless scrolling of the image search also makes the transition to the app. In fact, endless scrolling is functional with any search result.
