Software shootout: Image search apps [Video]

Unfortunately, searching for images and just images on Windows Phone 7 is not so easy, despite having Bing built in. Sure, you could fire up the browser and do it the old manual way, but we're looking for a more elegant solution.

Two image viewers are put to the test: Easy Image Collector ($0.99; store link) and ImageSearch ($0.99; store link). Both offer try-before-you-buy options and each has it strenths and quirks, leading to no clear winner but instead two pretty solid performers that greatly enhance image searching.
