CarPlay

Post by jltnol »

Does anyone know if Prowl can be used with CarPlay? I'm on my phone in CarPlay under the Customize option, and at the bottom I see "More Apps", but tapping it doesn't bring up anything or do anything.

Nope, Apple are very restrictive on what can be displayed on CarPlay (and with good reason, the amount of idiots I see driving around watching videos on their cars screens is ridiculous). Most I can suggest is have your messages sent via iMessage and have Siri read them out to you.

Apple -does- now allow third party 'communication' apps on CarPlay including messaging apps - WhatsApp for instance. CarPlay notifications from enabled apps are managed under Notification settings.

But the CarPlay approval criteria appear to require ability to both receive and compose messages (and only via Siri). I guess Prowl and other notification apps are one-way and fail that test. Seems an arbitrary distinction really...
