“CarPlay is becoming standard in more and more vehicles these days and apps like ours are a perfect fit for it” said Bryan Stafford, President and COO of AudiobooksNow. CarPlay enables users to navigate and interact with an app without having to touch their phone. Users simply access CarPlay on their display screen and touch a CarPlay enabled app. The user can then interact with the app solely through the display screen in their vehicle.
“Vehicles are the most popular place to listen to audiobooks and 48% of our customers are listening on an Apple device” said Stafford.

CarPlay support can also be added by replacing the vehicles native infotainment system with an aftermarket system than includes CarPlay.

CarPlay is implied to be easy so you can remain focused on the roadway. More advanced function like sleep timer and speed control will still need to be accessed through the iPhone.
