Bing after getting a good progress in Search market share has not stopped improving and now their Maps have some strong muscles with some awesome apps worth checking out. Here is the list :
- Whats Near By
- Local Events
- Local Lens
- Twitter Maps
- Current Traffic
- Traffic Land
- Haiti Earthquake
- Business by Category
- Destination Maps and many more.
The latest of this is the Local Events Application which was announced recently and helps you in finding local events around your. I find it pretty fast while switching from one place to other.
I hope we get to see more of these kind of applications integrated seamlessly between sections of Search such as if I search for an event it can get me direct on the maps from there. That should be pretty smart.
