TiPb's developer spotlights are like DVD/iTunes Extras for the App Store -- a weekly look behind the scenes at the programers and designers that bring you the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad apps and games you love. This week Rene talks with Ryan, Abhishek, and Feng from TeleNav...
...And with the help of Todd, they responded with the fantastic video posted above. Many thanks to everyone at TeleNav for this!
Giving away 3 one-year subscriptions to the TeleNav powered AT&T Navigator isn't cool. You know what's cool? Giving away 30 one-year subscriptions. To celebrate the launch of AT&T Navigator 1.8i (for the AT&T iPhone) -- the first app to takes advantage of TeleNav’s hybrid navigation service! -- that's exactly what they're doing.
AT&T Navigator for iPhone -- powered by TeleNav -- has just been updated to version 1.7i and here's all the new stuff you get:
Lane Assistance: Need to know what lane you should be in? Lane assist will help you with exactly that, making easier to know where you should be to prepare for your next maneuver.
Traffic Camera Alerts: Want a heads up before heading into the next traffic light? Traffic Camera Alerts gives you exactly that – a simple way for you to know what’s coming up ahead at the next traffic signal!
One Touch Speech Recognition: Now, with AT&T Navigator 1.7i, you can now with just one button speak in commands to quickly find the information you’re looking for! You can say things like “Search for the library” or “Drive to Las Vegas, Nevada.”
Battery Saver Mode: Is there any bigger bummer than finding our your cell phone’s battery has died? With Battery Saver Mode, when you’ve arrive at your destination or have been stationary for a while, this feature will give you peace of mind by turning off your GPS – and helping to save your battery.
Multitasking: Big fan of iOS4? Then without a doubt, multitasking is an important feature to you.
Smoother 3D Animations: In the new version of AT&T Navigator, we’re now using a new “OpenGL” engine that allows us to use higher frame rates, better transition animations, and renders faster when panning in 3D maps! What does that mean for you? A better navigation experience!
Spring has sprung and what better way to celebrate the great driving weather than teaming up with TeleNav to give away five (5) 1-year subscriptions to AT&T Navigator (for those of you in the US) or Rogers Navigator (for those of you in Canada).
Want? Great, all you have to do is head on over to Facebook and:
Who says gift giving is done, and to celebrate TiPb is teaming up with TeleNav to offer TiPb's TeleNav AT&T Navigator Give Away! And since we're already running the huge Round Robin contest in the forums, we figured this one would be perfect for the social networks.
The holidays are upon us soon the new year will be here, and to celebrate TiPb is teaming up with TeleNav to offer TiPb's TeleNav AT&T Navigator Give Away! And since we're already running the huge Round Robin contest in the forums, we figured this one would be perfect for the social networks.
AT&T Navigator [Free with subscription - iTunes link] is the AT&T branded version of Telenav, GPS Turn-By-Turn software provided by AT&T. It is free to download, but requires a $10 monthly subscription paid through your AT&T bill. It also provides maps OTA (over-the-air), downloading any maps and data as needed through the AT&T network. This is both beneficial (takes up less space on the iPhone) and detrimental (can’t use if you have no signal).
Every week a few of us from team TiPb, bloggers and forum crew alike, will bring you our current favorite, funnest, most useful App Store apps, WebApps, jailbreak apps, even the occasional accessory, web site, or desktop app if the mood strikes us. As long as they're iPhone (or iPod touch) related, they're fair game.
So who's on deck this week and what are our picks? Find out after the break!
