Microsoft has released an update to the Bing Rewards app for Windows Phone. The update brings the app to a level of being an actual app. The initial release from this summer was little more than a web wrapper for the Bing Rewards site and, as you can imagine, was met with a fair amount of skepticism. This update should squelch some of those concerns.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with Bing Rewards, it is a US-only program where you are awarded points for doing searching on Bing. Those points in turn can be used to purchase of things like Microsoft Store or Xbox credits, Starbucks cards and the like. The more you search the more points you get. The Bing Rewards app lets you keep track of how you are progressing towards a point total or status level as well as shop to spend those earned points.
