Earlier this year, TeleNav launched a free Scout app and promised an online, HTML5 navigation service. Perhaps those weren’t gaining enough momentum, because TeleNav is now offering the service to developers, who can embed TeleNav’s turn-by-turn Scout.me services into their apps. Read more about Scout for Apps using HTML5 on the TeleNav blog.
Apparently the first to do this will be the Yellow Pages app. TeleNav’s developer blog has a few more details, although no mention of cost to developers. Instead, there’s a mention that “you’ll also be able to participate in future revenue sharing opportunities with no additional effort” — which sounds like advertising may appear at some point to monetize this whole thing.
Still, if you’re looking for a quick mapping solution in your app with voice turn-by-turn directions, Scout for Apps is definitely one solution.
