Navigon vs. Scout vs. TomTom: iPhone turn-by-turn navigation app shootout!

Garmin's Navigon, Telenav's Scout, and TomTom are all excellent GPS turn-by-turn navigation apps available for the iPhone, and all handle navigation, especially the bells and whistles surrounding it, differently. Since turn-by-turn GPS navigation apps are among the few that have maintained higher price points in the app store, so it's not financial viable to simply buy them all and figure out which one works best for you. That's where iMore comes in! We've loaded them up, driven around, and figured out who offers the best all-in-one maps and voice navigation package, and more importantly, which one is best for you!

Note: We will be using the U.S. versions of all three apps but all three have many different offerings across several countries.

Budget airline using iPads to reduce aircraft's weight, fuel consumption and running costs

New budget airline Scoot Pte is now using iPads as its preferred choice of in-flight entertainment across its fleet. The move sees Scoot remove around two tons of old style audio video in-flight entertainment equipment from its aircraft and replace it with iPads. The change to iPads has enabled Scoot to shave up to seven percent off an average aircraft’s weight and add a further forty percent to the seating capacity. These savings reduce the aircraft's fuel consumption which obviously has a big cost saving.

App of the Week: Timer for iPhone

If you read my review of Timer earlier this week, you know I'm a huge fan of App Cubby's newest app for setting timers. Its primary attribute is its simplicity. To start a timer, you just hit the big button that represents the time you want.

I first had the pleasure of trying out Adonit's Writer for iPad, then one of the newest, thinnest Bluetooth keyboards for iPad, at Macworld 2012. And it was impressive. By choosing to incorporate a full case, but in a uniquely interesting manner, is it still impressive enough?

Accessory of the week: Adonit Jot Pro Stylus

The Adonit Jot Pro really stood out in our recent pro stylus pen shootout. Adonit made a brave, bold choice by not going with the common fat-style silicone tip. Instead they went with a thin metal tip more like that of a mechanical pencil or fine pointed pen, and mounted it with a see-through, capacitive disk.
