Windows Live: Missing feature in Live Search Mobile
I recently downloaded Live Search Mobile onto my smartphone. One of the best features about it is that they have categorised local amenities so that if you want to to find (say) your nearest restaurant it really is very easy to do. The high-level categories are:
- Government and Community
- Health and Fitness
- Hotels and Accomodation
- Shopping and Services
Recently however I uncovered what I reckon is a glaring omission from their categories. The ‘Health and Fitness’ section contains a subsection of ‘Hospitals’. That’s all well and good but it doesn’t differentiate between hospitals that do and do not have an emergency room. I would have thought that that would be a prime feature for a mobile location based service such as this. What do you think?
I would pass this feedback onto the Windows Live team via http://feedback.live.com/ but unfortunately I grew exasperated with that site a long time ago given the fact that the feedback is wholly one way – you never hear back from them.
