APPLE’S ALTERNATE AUTOMOBILE APP. $1.99 | www.icarmode.com
If you’re an iPhone user who hasn’t bought a car in the last couple of years then iCarMode is your best bet, since you’ll need a compatible car to use CarPlay. The app offers contacts, third-party map integrations and a generous suite of media playback options that can be used as a standalone app on your phone. iCarMode sweetens the deal with GPS parking location and time limit reminders for when you’ve parked the car.
