TeleNav's Scout App for iPhone Gets More Social
TeleNav today released an updated version of its Scout navigation application for the iPhone with a number of new features. Scout now makes it easier for users to plan and share routes with friends and family, even with those who don't use Scout. Using the in-app tools, users can share an address, location, or event via text message, email, or Facebook. The recipient can then follow a link in the message to the browser-based version of Scout to see the shared address or directions. The new Scout also makes it easy for travelers to share their estimated time of arrival (ETA) with friends/family. The app can calculate when the traveler will arrive based on rate of travel, distance, and traffic conditions. The ETA can then be shared with others via text message. Scout for the iPhone is a free download from the iTunes App Store.
