Hands-On with Windows 8.1: New Bing Apps

Food & Drink and Health & Fitness

While the Metro-style apps included with the initial release of Windows 8/RT were generally unimpressive, one set of apps stood out: The Bing apps like News, Finance, Sports, Travel and Weather. With Windows 8.1, the Bing team is back with two more apps: Food & Drink and Health & Fitness. Guess what? They’re beautiful too.

There’s really not much to say about these apps as they’re fairly straightforward, so I’ll just show you what they look like.

As its name suggests, Food & Drink focuses on food and drink, with recipes, shopping lists, meal plans, tips and techniques, advice from celebrity chefs, and guides to wine and cocktails.

Health & Fitness delivers exercise plans, exercise, health and fitness trackers, a symptom checker, fitness videos, nutrition information, and articles and news.
