• Audible App Updated to Include Support for Apple's CarPlay

    Those of you who are using CarPlay and love using the audiobook app, Audible, will be happy to know to you’ll now see an icon for the app appear on their dash automatically if you have the app installed on a connected iPhone. Audible has updated their app to support CarPlay, which will make it possible to use the iOS device with the vehicle without creating a dangerous distraction, all thanks to various dashboard integrations and a simplified interface.

    As far as the rest of the app update goes, Audible has managed to pack in several general updates as well including improvements to the Sleep Timer, Discover mode and the tab bar. The Lock Screen and Control Center’s track control icons should now accurately reflect whether a user has them set to 30-second forward/back or chapter skip. A full change log for the update can be found below for those of you who are interested:

    • CarPlay is now available for Audible!
    • Lock Screen/Control Center – Previously, the Lock Screen/Control Center buttons were always chapter forward/back, even if your settings were for 30-second forward/back. Now, your lock screen/Control Center will feature the correct icons.
    • Sleep Timer – There is now a "Reset Timer" option after the sleep timer ends, reducing the number of taps from 4 to 2.
    • Sleep Timer – The fade-out returns.
    • Discover – On iPhone, we've updated the visual design by removing the dark overlay and going to a grid.
    • Discover – On iPad, we've replaced "Discover" with a true browse experience (it used to just be search). It should now mirror the iPhone version.
    • When you sample a book from a book detail page in "Discover" or search, it now plays in the player. This allows you to leave the detail page and still listen to the sample.
    • New Tab Bar – We moved Settings into the main navigation and created an overflow menu (on iPhone) for the items that no longer fit on the main tab.

    Those of you interested in downloading the update can do so for free as long as your device has iOS 7.0 or later installed.
