    It's not the app itself, just a link to the app download, you can hide it if not interested.


    Vcast video is pretty cool thou, but a bit pricey at 10 per month. It's cool thou, it's like OnDemand is on your cable. They have full episodes you can download and the content gets updated often, it MUCH better than Vcast used to be in the past.

    Or you can just go into the service books and delete the ones for these apps.

    Same here and I was about to post a new thread when I saw yours. I just did the same exact thing as you and just noticed the Bing icon.

    I just installed it to see what it was about. It is free and has regular internet searching, as well as local searching (restaurants, movies, etc) built-in as well as mapping. The mapping has a 'track me with GPS' feature but I haven't been able to use it in the car to see if it actually moves automatically to the next directional step or if it just follows you on the map and you have to choose the next step (like Google Maps for BB).

    One thing it does have which I also have not been able to test yet is 'Voice Search' so you can presumably speak a location for mapping, or a search term.

    One unfortunate thing is that the app does not rotate to landscape when the Storm is rotated.

    I'm not sure yet...but what I can say is the Windows Live Search Mobile application I used to use on my Windows Mobile device was better than any local search app I've yet found for Blackberry. If Bing is growing into the replacement for it, then I might stick with it for a little while and see where it goes.

    So now Bing or Poynt?

    U can delete from service books but do a bat pull and they will return just hide it. Maybe instead of pushing apps how about fixing the dam OS and its memory leak.

    When I went to m.bing.com/download they have a version for 4.7 devices but not 5.0 i'm curious enough to try it, i had the ms live search for a while but got rid of it. i think this is just a rebranded ms live search.

    Bing is a good engine and I prefer it over Goog. Just wish it would rotate to landscape.

    Seems like a pretty good app to me so far, only thing that is really bugging me is that it doesn't rotate in landscape mode. Also I tried the voice search and it actually seemed to work pretty well for me...gonna have to play around with it more.

    The voice recognition though is sweet! Sure beats my sloppy typing to enter search, get directions, etc. That's a big plus over Poynt IMHO.
