Bing has announced, they have made their mobile app available today from the Verizon tab, in the Marketplace on your Verizon Android phone. The app has the standard Bing image of the day, with built in trivia, and the ability to see the images from up to 7 days earlier. You can also search for images, movies, local info, and even news.

The most intriguing thing about the application is that it incorporates voice control within the app, much like the Google search does. It will allow you to voice search for instant answers on things like movies, stock quotes, flight status and local listings. Not only will it do that but, it will locate you on your GPS and give you information on places around you. Directions are available also, although there is not any turn-by-turn navigation, it will allow you to swipe through each direction as you get through with it. So if you have a Verizon Android phone, tap on over to the Market, download the Bing for mobile app, and tell us if it gives Google's apps a run for their money.
