I'm just switching from the Google Maps API to Bing since Bing's tos allows commercial storage of geocoding results. I was able to sign up for a Microsoft live registration and get a Bing Maps API key. But I need an app id too. I tried these directions:
But when I go to the developer center, I see nowhere to login and nothing that refers to an app id. When I search on the developer center for an app id, all I get is the reference to the instructions above. I tried contacting Microsoft/Bing, but all their links for "technical support" are failing so I'm at a loss. Can anyone tell me another way to get an app id for purposes of using Bing mapping API?
