Consumers like seamless flow of data, it makes things so much easier, and doesn’t require having to punch in all the details once again on another device. This ease of use feels much more natural, and also ends up saving a lot of time. Microsoft today released updated versions of its Bing Windows Phone apps. These apps are now capable of syncing with their Windows 8 counterparts, so if you start something on Windows Phone, you can pick it up right where you left off on your Windows 8 machine.
For example, if you set a stock watch list in the Finance app on Windows Phone, it will show up the exact same way on Windows 8, you won’t have to set it up once again just for the Windows 8 machine. Microsoft also launched three new Bing apps for Windows Phone today, the Bing Food & Drink app, Health & Fitness app and the Bing Travel app. Beta versions of these apps have actually been available for a while now, today the beta tag was ultimately dropped. Existing apps such as Bing News, Weather, Sports and Finance have also been updated for Windows Phone, they too are now capable of syncing with their counterparts on Windows 8.
