Windows Phone 8 users partial to Telenav Scout can now leave the long line of people twiddling their thumbs waiting for their favorite apps to arrive on the OS. Previously available on iOS, Android and older Windows Phone versions, the newest Scout on the Marketplace works on all WP8 devices. It comes with all of the bells and whistles one would expect from a personalized navigation platform, including a user's current location, nearby establishments, real-time traffic flow, possible routes to take and the commute duration for each. Voice guidance (and voice command), as well as traffic and red light alerts are also available -- assuming you're willing to pay $25 per year for the privilege. If, however, you're immune to Scout's navigational charms, there's always alternative options like Drive+, MapQuest and CoPilot to help your not-so-aimless wanderings.
