    What is it exactly? Just a search engine?

    This app was just updated and can now be used on Bold, Storms, and 8900's.

    Ive had this on my curve for some time now and i would say its the one app i probably get the most use out of. it can pick up your location either by GPS or you entering where you are and then can search for just about anything. (pretty much any buisness that would be in a phone book, it even gives you the addresses to people that are listed in the phone book too) It gives you driving directions and maps on the fly. if you find something you want to save you can save it directly to your address book with 1 click.

    it will give you real time traffic updates, movie times and whats playing at each theater (with reviews), and local weather.


    the only thing that is missing from the blackberry version but is in the windows mobile version is it gives you local gas prices.

    I love this app too! I was so bummed when it didnt work on my 8900, but now it does so all is perfect again! Poynt did a good job for me as an interim replacement (and I am even gonna keep it installed), but Live Search takes the cake for me!

    It's a cool app.I just wish they had tranfered the cheapest gas price listing like my windows moto Q9c gets.Silly really,but I like keeping up with the cost of local gas,even though I rarely go anywhere.I guess I just hate using my Q since I got my sweet berry.

    Sounds good, iuse it on the PC and did have it on my 8800. I like the latest Google search with voice and location options, but it is always good to have more than one search

    Just installed it, it's a lot faster on the Bold and works really well! Great find

    Maybe it's just my BB but I got "App Error 253" when rebooting after installing this on my 8900. :-(

    That is the only thing new I added, and it didn't happen after I removed it and rebooted again. I'm bummed because I really like this app!

    One I found when I couldn't get Live Search on my BB is Superpages. Just as good IMHO.
