Tilt Track Taps iPhone Accelerometer for Car Safety

tilt track music player best iphone apps for not crashing your carTilt Track taps into your iPhone’s accelerometer to offer a novel way to control playback while keeping two eyes and at least one hand on the wheel.

Skipping ahead starts the next track from the beginning, and switching back to the previous track queues it up where you left off, alleviating concerns that a poorly placed pothole could cut your favorite jam short —  a nice touch.

And if the tilt controls get to be too much, you can turn them off in favor of swipe or tap functions within the app.

A slight bummer: closing out of the app also means killing whatever you were listening to, so you’ll have to re-select new music if you restart.
