    Wireless CarPlay doesn’t work via Bluetooth solely. Bluetooth is not enough to send that amount of data back and forth. Your stereo that supports wireless CarPlay will have built in WiFi that your phone will access to transmit the CarPlay data. My aftermarket stereo does wireless CarPlay so my phone just connects via the built in WiFi each time. Obviously you could still charge on a Qi pad in your car at the same time.

    Never done wireless charging with either my current or last phone (both with the capability for it). Maybe I'll ask for a wireless charger for Christmas.

    my bmw is a 2017 and has wireless CarPlay, so I’m sure that by now with 2020s coming out for all makes there is a much wider selection of wireless options
     
  4. Ugh my 2020 Subaru did not come with Wireless Carplay.

    hello. Supporter

    My parents just got a new car the other day and I got to use CarPlay for the first time. I never want to use a car without it again.

  18. I think that I'm going to try getting into RSS to lay off of Twitter a bit and make sure I get all of the articles I want. I'm leaning towards using the app Reeder but was wondering if anyone else has thoughts?

    I use Reeder on Mac and Unread on iOS. I've also used Fiery Feeds on iOS. Reeder does take a while when it comes to updates, but I've found it's still a pretty solid app.
     
  20. I think that's the one to go with for a very good, simple, well designed app.

    I currently use ReadKit on the Mac (because I want to use Pocket with it + need smart folders for organizing stuff to post on this website), and I use FieryFeeds on iOS because it has way, way, way too many customizable options but it works really well for my workflow in the same way.
     
  21. Okay, cool! Thanks! All I think I'll be doing is subscribing to a handful of websites and probably syncing Instapaper with it as well.

    I'll look into Reeder and Fiery Feeds! I think those are the ones that I've heard about the most. I know that Reeder does have a reputation of being slow with updates, but I absolutely adore the look of the app from what I've seen. I'll mainly be using this stuff on iOS.

    I wonder if I'd read my articles in Pocket more consistently if I had them in with my RSS app. Looks like Reeder only supports Instapaper though. Might have to check out ReadKit.

    I’ve been using Reeder (with a Feedbin back end, once Google Reader died-RIP) since the app came out. Definitely my favorite to use for all things RSS.

    I can see why people like Fiery Feeds, but it’s TOO much to toggle for me.

  24. Feedly is the best RSS reader since Google Reader folded imo

    Got to messing around with new update for Drafts for macOS which now allows you to use actions.

    This is amazing, and now has me wondering why I use Ulysses to update my blog.

    Only gripe I have right now is my Fantastical action doesn't work, but it's not Drafts fault - the URL schemes are slightly different between the macOS and iOS versions.
