iPhone with Microsoft apps

Microsoft has launched their Who’s In iMessage tool as a standalone app for iOS and Android devices. The main purpose of Who’s In is to organize outings with friends by searching Bing from within the app and scheduling an event. Here’s the app’s description.

Who’s In makes planning a night out with friends a breeze. There’s no need to switch between a variety of apps and contacts to get everyone on the same page. With Who’s In, you can find activities with Bing, suggest times to meet, then sit back as your friends vote for the best option.

  • Eat and Drink: Find restaurants options that your friends will love – you can search by cuisine, location, or price. The flexibility of Bing search at your fingertips.
  • Watch a Movie: Find movie options with ratings and review details. The movie cards even link to show time information.
  • Attend an Event: Find upcoming concerts, football or baseball games. Why not see if some friends can join?
  • Create Your Own: Need help scheduling an event you’re hosting? Use Create Your Own to make planning your next get together with friends easier.

The Who’s In app appears to be a bit buggy right now with current user reviews for both versions complaining about glitches and usability options. Have you used Who’s In yet? Let us know how your experience has been in the comments below.
