As reported, while it plans to keep Stitcher’s website and apps (including Stitcher for iOS) as standalone products, Deezer intends to integrate Stitcher’s audio content into its core streaming service.
It also plans to leverage Stitcher’s reach as an in-car audio entertainment service, which has just gotten a major push with the addition of CarPlay support.
Through its latest update, Stitcher for iOS has been enhanced with support for Apple’s automobile dashboard standard. Now, you can control Stitcher navigation and playback right on your CarPlay-enabled vehicle’s dashboard and CarPlay-enabled aftermarket stereo systems, including Pioneer’s in-dash multimedia receivers.
The latest update to the app also delivers stability improvements and bug fixes.
