It's not for the iAnything, but for Windows Mobile (like the AT&T Tilt 
and other HTC products).  Check out APRSISCE/32 via the Wiki at 

It also runs on the Windows CE 5.0-based Web DT 366 as well as on Linux 
under WINE to open up your hardware platform options.

It can use (mobile) Internet if available, but it can also go RF-only 
via multiple supported TNCs (including D7* family).  It also supports 
preloaded and locally cached multi-zoom maps for disconnected mobile use.

Oh, and it does normal Windows on your desktop as well!  One program, 
multi-platform, your choice.  (but not i* nor 'droids).
