  • Interest in a new iPad automotive app

    Hi guys,
    I am part of a startup company that is working on an automotive infotainment app for iPad. I, myself have been a user of a car PC in my car over the previous years. However the app we are building has evolved from the concept of car pc frontend and is not going to be loaded with features, at least not for start. It's main purpose is provide the basic functionalities that a driver needs in the most driver friendly way. We are 3 people working full time on this. However, I need your help to verify that there is actual interest for this kind of app on the iPad and find out what would the most needed features be?

    Why iPad?? Android is more oriented for car installations IMO.

      You are likely going to get people that are going to say sure but realistically it is not very likely many will load this on an iPad and put it in their car. The iPad is a bit expensive to put in a vehicle permanently. Most would rather put an Atom based PC instead for the price. Android makes sense because you can get a tablet for $200 or less.

        Yes I am very interested in an app. I have an iPad mounted in my car. What I really would like is a music frontend. I use cartunes which is not bad.

          Interest in a new iPad automotive app

          Android is also in our roadmap but we have to start somewhere. We also don't aim that much to permanent installations as this is done by a minority of users. We mostly aim for drivers that are willing to mount their ipad on their windscreen or vents.
          And yes music is top priority.

            You may want to do android first unless you have some sort of love affair with iOS.

              Add a poll in the OP if you can, that will definitely help.

                iOS development is already underway. There are a couple of reasons for choosing iOS over Android as the first target platform with the most significant one being that in Android there are numerous devices with different specs and screen sizes and it is much more difficult to provide full support and troubleshoot.

                How can I open a poll? I can't seem to find a way.

                  Not sure if you can or not on this forum, but if you can there should be an option at the top.

                    I'd be very interested in the iOS app!

                      Hi, I've also been working on an in-car concept called Dashbox: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/dash...567522905?mt=8

                      I think a lot of you will find it interesting. It has just been released for iPad and I'm currently working on iPhone and Android version. It is free to download and would love to get your feedback on how to improve it.

                      All the best Dash!

                        Is your app still going to happen?

                          @Dashbox: Sorry for the long delay. Never got a notification from mp3car and never thought to check back, since I thought this topic was dead.
                          Actually I was a user of your app when it was named PodCar! Really glad to find you here!

                          There is definitely something going on from our side. We decided to take a minimal approach and start simple. We aimed more on User eXperience and minimizing driving distraction rather than features. See here: http://www.mp3car.com/apple-ipad/158...r-drivers.html

                          If you or anyone wants an invite send me a PM. Cheers!

                            Seeing as this thread is in the iPad sub forum, not sure many Android users will vote.

                            The option is in 'Additional Options' when you first start a thread.

                            Not sure if you can add one retrospectively.

                            Try editing your first post and go to advanced and see if the option is there.

                              No option for adding a poll now. I don't want to flood the forum with new topics and as you said there are not many Android users here. We will probably prepare an Android version at some point though.
