TomTom has said that it will soon introduce multi-tasking to its TomTom app for iPhone as well as other much-requested features in a free update.
The next version of the app, which will be compatible with iOS 4, will be submitted to Apple for review after the June 21st release of iOS 4, said the company.
New features include offering support for multi-tasking ( only on iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch 3rd Generation devices, running iOS 4) and turn-by-turn guidance at the same time as operating other apps. The free update will also include the latest GeoSmart map of New Zealand.
The New Zealand app is currently on sale for $94.99.
“As TomTom continues to innovate and to take advantage of new capabilities of the iOS 4, users of the TomTom app will benefit from the combination of TomTom’s most advanced and acclaimed features and the iPhone’s unique functionality,” said Chris Kearney, Marketing Manager, TomTom Australia & New Zealand.
“We are pleased to integrate multitasking capabilities to the newest version of our TomTom app, and to be able to ensure that users can now enjoy other iPhone features while continuing to receive the best routing directions from their TomTom application.”
