Gogo Navigator for iPhone offers good navigation at a good price

Gogo Navigator supports real-time turn by turn navigation throughout the United States and Canada at a decent price. I recently looked at Garmin StreetPilot for iPhone which is currently priced at $34.99. While the app had a great interface and offers turn by turn navigation, I found it had one huge down side. StreetPilot does not store maps natively. This means if you're out of range of a signal you won't be able to access maps since they can't pull from the servers.

Gogo Navigator uses native maps for navigation. Regardless whether you have a signal or not, you can still get turn by turn directions. They offer maps in regular view as well as real-time 3D view. You also have the features you'd expect from a good GPS app like favorites and places of interest (POI). Gogo Navigator is currently priced at $29.99 in the app store which is a great deal for a decent GPS app. It's a much lower price point that most and I found it did the job just as well as some of my other GPS apps. Hit the jump for some screens!

Last major holdout, Random House, coming to iBooks?

Random House will be adopting the Apple and iBooks-centric 70/30 "agency model" tomorrow, the day before Apple's iPad 2 event on Wednesday.

"The agency model guarantees a higher margin for retailers than did our previous sales terms," Random House said in a statement. "We are making this change both as an investment in the successful digital transition of our existing partners and in order to give us the opportunity to forge new retail relationships."

Coincidence or a sign the iBooks catalog might soon be a little less sparse?

Apple COO Tim Cook talks cheaper iPhones, huge tablet market growth

Apple COO Tim Cook talks cheaper iPhones, huge tablet market growth

During a meeting with Bernstein analyst Toni Sacconaghi, Apple COO Tim Cook referred to the iPhone as "the mother of all halos" because of its ability to expand sales of other core products like the iPad and the Mac. Cook went on to strongly suggest that Apple would be releasing a cheaper iPhone in the not-so-distant future:

The analyst says Cook “appeared to reaffirm the notion that Apple is likely to develop lower priced offerings” to expand the market for the iPhone. Cook said the company is planning “clever things” to address the prepaid market, and that Apple did not want its products to be “just for the rich,” and that the company is “not ceding any market.”

Still no white iPhone 4, so how about a white iPad 2 rumor?

Still no word on the white iPhone 4 other than "spring" so how about we start wondering about a white iPad 2? That's what the above part just might represent. Or it could just be a test part, a part for after-market conversion shops, or for a knock-off tablet. Who knows any more?

iOS 4.3 unlock working on iPhone 4 basebands 3.10.01 and 2.10.04?

iOS 4.3 unlock working on iPhone 4 basebands 3.10.01 and 2.10.04?

iOS 4.3 is surely on the horizon. That leaves many unlockers wondering whether or not there will be an unlock ready. It's been a while but it appears a tweet from @sherif_hashim may be confirming that the issues have finally been worked out.

Don't go upgrading just yet though! MuscleNerd of the iPhone Dev Team stated earlier that an iPhone 4 unlock solution would not be released until after iOS 4.3 goes public. This unlock would allow iPhone 4 users to unlock their phones on the newer basebands (3.10.01 and 2.10.04).
