Bing suite of apps updated for Windows Phone

Yo. Don't want to read about apps like Yo? Then you're in luck! Some of your favorite Windows Phone apps just picked up some updates. Finance, Sports, Health & Fitness, Food & Drink, News and Weather (all from Bing) just picked up some new updates on Windows Phone. It looks like Bing Travel missed being updated this round. All of these apps are community favorites, so we're excited to see what's new.

Earlier this week we saw the refresh of Bing apps for Windows Phone, including News, Weather, Finance and more. Those were rather large updates as they brought account syncing and sharing options, making the Bing apps infinitely more useful for everyday use.

Today, Bing News had an update, in fact, if you open up the app you may even get an alert telling you as much – a neat little feature.

Deccan Chronicle is the third largest English newspaper in India in terms of readership and circulation, and very popular in South India. The publication’s official app has now arrived on Windows Phone.

While the app gives you free access to all content, including news, photo galleries, and opinion columns at Deccan Chronicle, it disappoints in user experience. Honestly, I’ve seen better mobile websites.

Update: As of 7PM ET, all links are now working. Please try now to download the new Bing suite for Windows Phone 8. It's not restricted to the US.

Today, Microsoft has pulled the sheets off of a new suite of apps based around the Bing search engine. Simply called Bing Apps, the collection of four apps includes Sports, News, Weather and Finance, including Live Tile support for Windows Phone 8 devices.

Based off of the same suite of apps for its Windows 8 OS, the new applications bring all of the latest news right to the Start screen, continuing the “glance and go” usability that Windows Phone users have become accustomed to. Indeed, this is the first time we’ve seen some real parallels between the desktop and mobile OS drawn and it should make using the two systems more seamless than before for new customers.

Watch our first-look video of the new apps in action and enjoy the gallery of screenshots after the break.
