What is it about?

Here is another nice app that lets you set up playlists ahead of time and then flick through your music without taking your eyes off the road. A simple tap turns the music on or off. Tap and spin to control volume. Customize your gestures to take advantage of the features you use most. Fast forward or rewind thirty seconds. Swipe to restart or skip songs. You'll find many of the same features found in the other apps here, in addition to different themes, fonts, clock, and album artwork for visual interest (when you're NOT driving, of course). CarTunes Music Player is another app very worthy of your consideration. Only the price keeps me from putting it above FlickTunes.

CarTunes Music Player

For those who...

  • It’s absolutely perfect for controlling your tunes in the car.

Not for those who...

  • Really, there isn’t much not to like here. The only question you need to ask yourself is, is the native music player in iOS good enough for me?

Why we love it

If you need a more efficient way to control your tunes in the car, this is the app for you. It operates perfectly in both landscape and portrait orientations, and provides you with the whole screen to control your music.
