In a move that will certainly have the folks at Telenav (creators of Scout) gaining a whole lot more users in the immediate future, they've pushed their voice-guided turn-by-turn navigation features down to the free portion of their app. While Scout's voice-assisted navigation has existed in the premium model for some time, the Telenav team have seen an opportunity to assist those looking for an alternative navigation system if they're not all about Apple's own Maps system built-in to the iPhone 5 and iOS 6 for legacy iDevices.
