Ignition brings the CarPlay feature to your iPad

CarPlay Activator, a tweak that we reviewed in depth a few weeks ago, is now available for download on Cydia as Ignition. The tweak, which is remarkably free of charge, is from well-respected developer Adam Bell. If you’re not interested in dropping north of $500 on a CarPlay head unit with a terrible resistive touch screen, then Ignition may be the answer to your CarPlay desires.

Upon installing the tweak, a new standalone app icon will appear on your Home screen dedicated to Ignition. Tapping on it restarts your device and then enables the CarPlay mode where you will have access to the tweak’s interface only.

It features a black background with large app icons that will look good on larger screens and makes it easier to navigate. As mentioned earlier, it features the following apps:
  • Music
  • Maps
  • Messages
  • Now Playing
  • Overcast
  • Phone
  • Podcasts
  • Rdio
  • Spotify

Currently, Ignition is made for iPad and does not support iPhone. It plays well on the iPhone 6 Plus, but on other models, the app icons will overlap on top of each other making the tweak unusable.

Why spend extra and endure the headache of having an after market head unit installed when you can use this? Again, Ignition is available free of charge on the BigBoss repo. Check it out, and let me know what you think in the comment section down below.
