Bingle Maps 1.2 with Google Global Business Search

Bingle Maps 1.2 has been released to the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace today. This version utilizes Google’s “Places” API and “Geocode” API to power search and address lookup feature. Bing’s doing a good job on routing but I’d compare routing data from both side to see if I should also switch routing data over. AFAIK, Google’s Directions V3 API only returns encoded way points and decoding them is not that simple.

Categorized business search would most likely come in next version (aka, the “what’s nearby” feature), and I’m also looking into transit information and compass support.

Also celebrating Bingle Maps passing 20,000 users 😀
