Yesterday we reported on a web service cataloging the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace, which was unfortunately in Italian. What we didn’t realize is that Microsoft’s Bing visual search can act as an online catalog of WP7 apps. You can sort by category or price, as well as look at the top rated, newest free, newest paid, and most downloaded apps.
There’s no way to send the apps to your phone or Zune software, but it’s still the most elegant way of app researching from your webbrowser.
I’m not sure how up-to-date their search engine is, though. It only reports 1658 apps, where we have other reports of more than 2000.

Google should be copying this in 3….2…..1…
Really, great idea by Microsoft.
