Title says it all. If you'd like to try out the new Bing search app but are not on Verizon, download the .apk below. Post below if you have any problems or thoughts about the app.

Quote:

Today we are happy to announce the first official Bing for Mobile Android App available to Verizon customers. You can now download the free Bing App from your Verizon Wireless Android phonesí Marketplace.

The app homepage features the Bing image of the day, complete with clickable hotspots that you can explore and discover related trivia. Did you miss one of the latest images? Donít worry; you can still swipe through up to 7 daysí worth of Bing images.

I'm not on Verizon so it's not showing up in my market. Can someone post an .apk for the rest of us?

edit: I have a co-worker with an unrooted Verizon Android phone. Is there a way I can get the app without rooting his phone?

edit: .apk attached. Installed on Evo and seems to work just fine. Some nice features here.

Or if you have rooted and have the market access app you can simply change to 310012 and search the market.

Installed on my EVO and it works great.

The traffic it shows on the map is a lot more accurate than google maps.
