Moms are busier than ever these days shuttling kids to various activities, planning parties, play dates, and family events between life’s other responsibilities. The Bing application for Windows Mobile is a fantastic way to reduce wasted time looking for services.
Locate, Share and Map Nearby Services
While out driving, moms can use the voice activated “speak” function to find just about anything. Often moms are stuck between appointments with nothing to do but waste time. To maximize that down time, Bing can find the nearest coffee.
For example, finding the closet Dunkin’ Donuts is an easy as simply speaking it to the phone. Bing then asks, “Did you say…1. Dunkin’ Donuts?” The user selects the text, causing Bing to come up with the address and phone number (which can be directly dialed). By selecting that, several options come up. The location can be mapped using current GPS location, saved to contacts, messaged to a friend, or even used as a “search near” location.
That amazing functionality can help a group of people locate, text and find nearby services, creating an easy way for them to gather while waiting for kids, or simply manage time and trips better. Bing mapping allows for navigation system type directions from one point to another using both map and text directions for step by step routing. No additional subscription services, hardware purchases or extra airtime charges apply.
Free Information for Windows Mobile Users
Remember the airtime usage and fees associated with 411 calls? Bing users no longer have to waste money on information calls that don’t always net the desired results. Search a category near the current location and users are provided with a quick list of everything available, including addresses and phone numbers. Need a bagel? Have to pick up pizza on the way home? Boom! Bing delivers immediately, showing the way to the nearest service.
Bing also offers the lowest area gas prices, traffic conditions, movie schedules and weather all at the touch of the button or the sound of a voice (which is very accurate in its voice recognition). For people looking to move near a certain school district, the GPS functionality in the “My Collections” section allows home buyers to see listed and just sold houses.
The Wikipedia function allows users to see nearby entries related to location. For local research, is a description of the town with population and historical information. Other interesting businesses and local media also appear in the Wikipedia search to give users a bit of the local flavor.
Solve Travel Emergencies Easily
Speaking of local flavor, restaurant searches find dining in many different categories. So, travelers can truly find choices that reflect regional dining, not just the safest chain visible from the highway.
Sometimes while traveling, unexpected situations arise. Lake effect snow can close the New York State Thruway without notice, stranding unprepared families. Hurricane season can dampen travel plans for southern travelers. Once again, Bing can come to the rescue. Not only are hotels, motels and inns represented in the accommodations represented, but campgrounds and RV parks are also easily searchable.
From the everyday to the unusual situation, having a tool like Bing while on the road can quickly solve problems of a wide variety. With this kind of power in the mom’s arsenal, organization and information are easily attained, allowing more time to enjoy motherhood. This might just be the Bing Bang Theory for mothers (excuse the pun) looking to make life a little easier.
