Apple’s CarPlay promo video Posted on Monday, March 3rd, 2014 at 8:15 am. PT Written by Jim Dalrymple From Volvo integration of CarPlay announced this morning. netgem21 Pretty sure that’s Volvo’s CarPlay promo video. http://blog.nicholasmodesto.com/ DigitizedSociety A better title would be: “Volvo’s promo video of Apple CarPlay” Odi Kosmatos The iPhone is the source of this new car experience. Lends credence to those espousing the idea that the iPhone would be the source of any “TV SET” experience Apple is working on. Mani Ghasemlou I like Volvo’s shout out to local Swedish talent In Flames. Jim I’m surprised you didn’t notice that. http://www.lazyprogrammers.com Eugene Kim My memory is very fuzzy, but I remember hearing way back in the early 2000′s that Bill Gates claimed the future in technology would be phones, TV, and in-car. Does anybody remember hearing that? I still can’t find the source. GFYantiapplezealots My next car will be an American Tesla. I hope they start integrating this into their cars. dumb Tesla already has android in their dashboard. so the answer would be no. http://blog.nicholasmodesto.com/ DigitizedSociety It sounds like Tesla wanted to bring Chrome Browser and an Android Emulator to the Model S. Based on that, it sounds like the media and dashboard system isn’t actually built on Android. http://www.johncblandii.com John C. Bland II Looks smooth as butter! I’m reallllly pleased to see they opened it up to other apps. That’s a shocker but a great move. It seems more Apple TV than App Store but still..baby steps. http://blog.nicholasmodesto.com/ DigitizedSociety It will be interesting to find out how those 3rd party apps get added to an owner’s CarPlay system. Is it meta data in the app that the CarPlay system scans for? http://www.johncblandii.com John C. Bland II It’s a completely different app, I think. The UX is far from the same so I’d expect the apps to be new. This feels like Apple-chosen apps. http://blog.nicholasmodesto.com/ DigitizedSociety The Engadget hands-on at the Farrari unveiling answered it at the 7:50 mark. “As an app gets updated to support CarPlay, it will get updated on your phone and magically show up in your car.” http://9to5mac.com/2014/03/04/apple-vp-greg-joswiak-helps-introduce-ferrari-carplay-at-geneva-motorshow-gallery http://www.johncblandii.com John C. Bland II So, in essence, just like universal apps you rebuild the app with views specifically for CarPlay. Interesting. dumb don’t worry google won’t be part of it. http://www.johncblandii.com John C. Bland II Your name explains this comment perfectly. lol. But seriously…did you have a point?
