Microsoft Releases Beta Bing Travel App

Bing Travel App BetaA new Bing mobile app will aim to offer Microsoft Phone users a one-stop hub for all their travel needs. The Bing Travel app, modeled on the web-based app already available for Windows 8.1 users, lets users book flights, check a flight status, and sort through hotel listings.

The app, which launched in beta, offers global “destination guides,” photos and day trip suggestions. You can also read through travel reviews, and a “nearby” feature uses your location to search for local restaurants and other attractions that might interest you.

The free Bing Travel joins Microsoft’s stable of Bing apps, including Finance, News, Sports, Translator and Weather.
