TomTom has announced that they will be introducing multitasking to the TomTom navigation app for iPhone in their next version.

This version will be compatible with iOS 4 and it is going to be submitted to Apple for review right after the release of iOS 4 on 21 June. The TomTom app for iPhone will allow users to get turn-by-turn guidance at the same time as operating other apps, like sending an email.  

The Dutch company’s current version of the TomTom app for iPhone (version 1.3.1) is available for purchase via Cupertino’s App Store and users who have this version will be able to upgrade to the new version for free as soon as it’s available. There is currently a discounted price $59.99 (about R461) for the Southern African version of the app.

“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 Joost Jetten, vice president for sales for Sub Sahara Africa. “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 they continue to receive the best routing directions from their TomTom application.”
