These 4 Bing apps are Windows 8 favorites, and now they’re on Windows Phone too


Four standouts from Bing’s stellar suite of Windows 8 apps are now available on Windows Phone, the Bing Blog reports. The mobile versions of the apps – Bing News, Bing Sports, Bing Weather and Bing Finance – are as elegantly designed, highly personalized and packed with world-class content as their desktop counterparts.

Read on for a look at all four:

Bing News
Keep tabs on the latest headlines all day long with articles, videos and images from blue-chip content partners like Associated Press, New York Times and Reuters. You can also track your favorite topics and news sources, and even pin them right to your Start Screen.

Bing Sports
Whether “football” means NFL or soccer to you, this app will help you stay on top of your favorite sports, teams and players. In any other app, the breadth of information – news, scores, game videos, standings, photos and more – might overwhelm you, but the brilliant design of Bing Sports makes it not just easy but a pleasure to use.

Bing Weather
There’s a million and one weather apps out there to choose from, but Bing Weather gives them all a run for their money. It’s charmingly designed, with at-a-glance predictions, dynamic maps, and a handy Live Tile that gives you instant access to today’s forecast.

Bing Finance
If you’ve got your mind on your money and your money on your mind, just keep one eye on your Windows Phone device and let Bing Finance do the rest. The app makes it easy to track your portfolio and features a wealth of up-to-the-minute business news and perspectives.
