Bing for BlackBerry

Bing for BlackBerry is a open-source project that incorporates the entire Bing 2.2 SDK.

 

Not really sure what else to say.

 

It started off as a port of "ibing" for the iPhone and expanded to include everything in the API when I found that not everything was included.

Hope someone finds a use for it.

Re: Bing for BlackBerry

Thank you, I hope to make some other libraries but that was a quick and relatively easy to do. I think it's good to have options, later when I have more time I would like to add map support but that is when I get other goals and tasks out of the way.

Re: Bing for BlackBerry

Bing for BlackBerry 2.2.1 is out. 2.2.1 adds support for Unified Search, it's basically just a wrapper for an ExternalSearchProvider.

 

By wrapping it the library can still be used on 4.5 through 5.0 but UnifiedSearch (the actual class) will return false when isSupported is called.

 

This release requires signing but can be made to ignore signing by using the define NO_SIGNING.

Re: Bing for BlackBerry

Added a demo app (in Download section) which is an image search app. It should work on 4.5 and up, if it doesn't then let me know.

 

Also if bbing is compiled for 6.0 and higher then it will also support Unified Search (well, only when the app is open but it is there none the less).

Re: Bing for BlackBerry

[ Edited ]

If you go to the Download section of the project, there is a download called "Getting Started" which covers how to get the Bing ID and use the library.

If you have any other issues, respond to this post.

 

Edit: I see based on your other post that you are looking for Bing Map intergration. This library is for search functionality, not maps.

Re: Bing for BlackBerry

Actually Sir,

There are two apps namely Yelp and Zillow which have bing maps integrated in it.

After searching for long I have got nothing related to bing maps integration.

I am wondering how these two app developed by integrating Bing maps as no api and No sample codes are available to do so

Thank you
warm regards
