RELEASE: Windows Live Search 2.0 mapping software for Windows Mobile

Windows Live Search 2.0 released for Windows Mobile so if you have a Windows Mobile device – 2003, 5.0 or 6.0, go to http://wls.live.com to download the latest version.

What’s new:

  1. Movies Near You
    Lists all movies playing near your currently listed location along with all theatres in your general vicinity.  For each movie it provides ratings, how much money it’s brought in over the weekend, it’s ratings and how long it is.  It’ll allow you to dial the phone number of the theatre as well as get directions or SMS a friend the address.  It’s lacking "movie showtimes, "user reviews" which kind of bugs.
  2. Cache size
    The cache size used to max out at 8MB even though you could put it all on a flash card.  Now it maxes out at 128MB which is particularly good if you look at a lot of satelite photography through your phone.
  3. Turn-by-turn & Rerouting
    The turn by turn directions are much better and easier to understand.  If you go past your location with GPS, it will even automatically reroute you to your destination.
