  1. Finally, one with searching of business names! Can’t wait to try it, thanks!

  3. Can someone explain how 3rd parties are doing this and Bing can’t? This is maddening, actually. Bing is a downgrade from my Windows Mobile 6.5 device.

    This app looks good, but we still can’t search for a Contact or even press and hold an address in other parts of the OS and send it to the app. I just want a normal GPS/directions app that is standard on all other smartphone devices.
