Bingle Map for Windows Phone 7

If you use Bing Maps on your Windows Phone 7, this may be of your interest. XDA member leonzhou presents Bingle Map, a combined Bing and Google services that will give you a much better user experience. On its latest beta version, you will find features like tap your current location to drop a pin on it, choose your personal icon for the pin when you drop it, hold down on anywhere else on the map to drop as many pins as you like, hold down on the pin to move it, and tap on the pin for more options. You need to have a developer unlocked device for side-loading, or you can install it to an emulator if you just want to try it out. The developer mentions that future releases may include social network integration, Google Map services integration, Satellite mode, and performance improvements.
