Windows Live Mobile Search V2 Released!

The coolest program I have for my Windows Mobile phone (by far) is Windows Live Mobile Search V1.  I use it daily to check how traffic looks as I'm driving to downtown Phoenix.  V2 of the program has been released that adds the following new features (and I see there's even a beta for BlackBerry users...but iPhone users are out of luck):

  • Movie Showtimes:  Want to see a movie but don’t know what’s playing?   Get Movie Showtimes near you and be on your way! 
  • More Local Data with Reviews:  Want to go out for dinner but not sure which restaurant to pick?  Let your fellow restaurant goers help you out – make a decision based on user ratings.
  • Maps:  View Mobile Virtual Earth maps wherever you are.  For improved performance, pop in your storage card to enable the large cache option. Street maps, Aerial and Hybrid are supported.
  • Directions: Lost?  Get found with better support for GPS integration and improved turn-by-turn navigation.  We’ll even prompt you to auto-reroute if you get lost!

    • And doesn't work on the iPhone. Boo.

    • doesn't work on the iPhone because Apple has a closed model right now where 3rd party software can't be installed. Hopefully Steve Jobs will open things up with the next version. It would definitely be a nice market for developers

    • If you already have Live Search V1 on your phone then you can quickly upgrade to V2 by clicking "Client Update Available" in the Live Search menu.

    • thats what the iPhone users deserve for wasting $600

    • Yeah...that's a lot of money although my first Windows Mobile phone was that much (but it does much, much more and allows me to have full control). As far as the "auto update", that's a cool feature. I initially downloaded the cab and then realized that automatic update was in there after the fact. :-)

    • Just tried it out - definately cool app - thxs for sharing.

    • Somehow it doesn't surprise me that the demo pic is showing where a Starbucks is. One of these things is not like the other one: Microsoft, Starbucks, Soul.
