CAR Screen

Hi,
i'm using the DoggCatcher App mostly while driving in the car.
Therefore i would like to see an (optional) User Interfache which is especially designed for the use in cars.
It should have big buttons and fonts and only the major functions (or ist should be configurable for the specific need of a user) , that the player can be used without distractiong the driver to much from the traffic.
Regards
Petwin

Have you tried using the now playing screen (slide up the episode title on the media player) for this? The buttons get bigger when it's open. You also can press on the feed thumb on that screen to toggle play/pause.

now playing screen

Eric,
yes, i have tried this. But this is still not what i expected. Using the mobile device in a car properly and easily require a very sophisticated UI. The best way would be, if the UI is configurable for each users needs.
Or the user can choose wihtin a couple of differnt UI's. I used on windows mobile device the tool Mort Player which has some of these features. This could a good way to improve the UI.
