Microsoft’s Bing team have been working on a new travel app for iOS and Android designed to entice users to visit the places they always dreamed about, and once there make their experience as smooth as possible.

The app called Outings will feature high-quality travel stories about beautiful places from premium travel blogs on a wide variety of destination categories, such as outdoor adventures, historical sites, city life, kid-friendly activities, beautiful vistas, or the hidden gems.

The app will offer personalized recommendations and help users save their finds on a bucket list which can be shared with others. It includes content from RoadTrippers.com, The Outdoor Project and The Outbound.

The website previously only had an Azure URL, but now appears to be live, with the apps available in the Google Play store. Unfortunately, it appears the app is currently US-only, and not available internationally.

See screenshots of the app below.

The website can be seen here, and if you are in a supported area the apps can be downloaded for iOS and Android at the links provided.
