Blast from the past!

As I feared I'd have to, I have unfortunately switched to another app because Neutron MP doesn't support CarPlay.

To clarify the extent to which it works in the car: iOS knows when media is being played and will send the relevant info to the car's head unit / receiver no matter what the source – even if it's a web browser window or something. So, when you play music through Neutron MP, the audio will play over the car's speakers and song info will appear on the screen. However, you have to use your phone to control the app (select songs/playlists, options like shuffle/repeat, etc.).

Full CarPlay support would mean there'd be a simplified interface available on the car's touchscreen to control the app, just like there is for Maps, Messages, Apple's native music player, etc. This allows you to put your phone away and have a lot less distraction while driving – one of the most important benefits of CarPlay.

The ideal would be for Neutron MP to have full CarPlay support, as well as an option for a custom EQ specifically for car use so one could correct for the quirks of the car's own audio system.

Anyway. Hope this can be added!
