      Is this the same guy who had this out last year, or just a similar concept?
      I will have to try it out.

      cool concept but Would be really useful if the app would allow screen share to any car head unit screen. Starlink (subaru) has removed iOS devices from screen sharing for maps, texts, music, etc... Having an app that imitates carplay is just not useful for me since I want to see that on my car head unit screen, not my phone (kind of defeats the purpose). but still cool idea

      The one I was thinking of was "Ignition" from Adam Bell... it stopped working about the time iOS 8.4 came out.

      I downloaded it to give it a try. Does anyone know how to get Waze on the screen? I bought it based on the photo showing Waze as that is my goto app.

      OK, figured it out. You hold any app to make them do the wiggle, then touch the plus symbol that shows up in the left column.

      Hey Caiden,

      I've been highlighting this for some 2 years now, and we still are facing the problem.. You're making it impossible for us to enjoy browsing/reading the site, and really difficault to do anything on the iPhone.

      Take a look at how this article is shown..

      * Can't read the title as it overlaps with menu
      * Can't appreciate the image, too big
      * Can't read the content, as image overlaps it
      * Comment section looks really bad

      Is there any way you can prioritise fixing the theme and make the site more usable on a phone please? You're really playing a risky game with us loyal guys who are trying real hard to stay.

      Ta.

      You do realize Caiden doesn't have any control over anything you just brought up right? Only the owners/admin can change/fix all of that.

      Oh, is he just a writer then? Hmm, maybe he has some connections or an ability to pull some strings?

      Hi xushi,

      I publish posts to size, and have to edit to the best of my ability for it to show on the desktop version of the website. Text overlays images which i have to create bold tags for which is quite annoying.

      I don't have the ability to pull any strings unless I become an administrator of MMi. I've spoken to Kyle many times about updating the website... They are supposedly struggling on updating vBulletin as it is a version issue. I'm angry about is as much as you are don't worry.

      I can only publish to the front page. Simon and other moderators have more control over to what I can do.

      I recommend joining us on https://telegram.me/iosjb for now as we speak about the latest news.

      Edit: I've also sent this post off to Kyle (admin) so he is aware of the frustration that users are facing.
