AT&T Navigator for iPhone
AT&T has released their version of “AT&T Navigator” for the iPhone. The app is “free”, but if you download it AT&T will automatically add $9.99 per month directly to your phone bill. You can cancel “any time” by calling AT&T… deleting the app won’t do it. What is notable about the app at this time is that it is powered by TeleNav. This in its own isn’t a huge surprise as AT&T and TeleNav have worked together in the past.
However TeleNav has previously announced their own iPhone app would make its way to the App Store. I haven’t seen any releases from TeleNav announcing the availability of their app (as in the AT&T Navigator app) so we are assuming this is the same application. I expect TeleNav will clear up the confusion before too long.
The AT&T Navigator app for iPhone weighs in at just 2.3 MB, so maps are not on-board. We’ll let you know when we’ve taken it for a spin.
