TomTom Releases $50 US-Only iPhone AppS

Given the intense competition in the turn-by-turn app wars, TomTom is offering an alternative to their $99 original version by ditching Canada and dropping the price to $50.

Man, if dropping Canada cuts the price of an app in half, that says a lot about how much money we waste on international maps. They should offer this option to all of the countries they serve. However, there are plenty of cheaper versions out there, not to mention free Google Navigation. [iTunes via MacRumors via MobileCrunch]
