CarPlay and Android Auto Comparison

Interesting differences in design. Android Auto is more like a tablet interface; CarPlay is more simplistic — almost more like Apple Watch than an iPhone or iPad.

Neither of these seems appealing to me, though, at least on this Hyundai. The lag is just atrocious.

Update: Polarized feedback on Twitter. Some are arguing that Apple’s CarPlay looks like a “kid’s toy”. Others are arguing that Android Auto is too busy to be suitable for use while driving. My favorite was this one, from Neil Anthony Jones:

@daringfireball Android Auto looks like the thing you do while your Googlecar drives you to your destination
