CarTunes Review: Gesture Control for Your Music Library

Every iPhone and iPad user loves using their devices to listen to music. While the native Music app is sufficient, there are a lot of music players that have more options or simply look better. CarTunes is an iOS music player that is different from the rest of the apps in a very useful way – its main focus is gesture control and it doesn’t have any unnecessary features that bloat the app. Plus it supports the new displays of iPhone 5 and the new iPad, which makes it the perfect music player.

PRICE: [highlight]Free[/highlight] for a limited time[/box]


CarTunes is a very simple app, but this doesn’t meant that it lacks in features. The main advantage of the app is that it makes controlling your music really easy because CarTunes supports full gesture control. You can tap anywhere to start or stop the music, flick to change songs, slide to control the volume or even instantly tweet the track by pulling down to name a few features.

Ease of use

CarTunes is amazingly easy to use. When you launch the app for the first time, you get a brilliant tutorial that is one of the easiest to follow that we’ve ever seen. You are asked to perform each gesture before you are redirected to the Now Playing screen. Selecting a song is as easy as swiping upward from the bottom of the screen and choosing a song from the library. You can sort your music in a number of different ways, which makes it easy to navigate through your library.

[box]The Verdict: CarTunes is a very simple, yet highly functional app to play music on your iPhone or iPad. Give it a try while it’s free and you won’t regret it.[/box]
