Since October, from the introduction of the iPhone 4S, the iPhone has been available on the third most popular provider in the US on top of AT&T and Verizon, both of which have been available for some time now. Users currently with contracts with Sprint had yet to see the light in the form of an official companion application for iOS, but it's finally here and somewhat worth the relatively long downtime/wait.
On Tuesday, GPS software outfit MapQuest announced on their blog that version 1.5.1 of MapQuest 4 Mobile for iPhone [App Store, Free] now incorporates a voice guidance feature within the app. The feature uses a voice to guide the user through directions and then confirms the directions once a turn has been made.
Other new features include Off-Route Assistance and Twin Tap to Zoom Out.
Late last week, mapping mainstay MapQuest launched MapQuest Navigator, its subscription-based GPS navigation application for the iPhone. The application was offered for a nominal $0.99 with a free two-week trial to be extended by monthly, quarterly or yearly subscription price packages. Today, per the company's blog, MapQuest noted that the free trial policy ran afoul of App Store restrictions and that it has had to adjust its initial pricing model for the application. The application is now priced at $3.99 [App Store] and includes one month of service.
