CarPlay Replacement for iLaneSpeaking Email FAQ | Home | All FAQs
Q: I was using iLane, is this CarPlay app similar?
A: iLane was a system for BlackBerry that allowed you to read and write emails by voice. This has now been discontinued, along with BlackBerry handsets.
Speaking Email CarPlay replaces iLane, for iPhone.
iLane used to do all sorts of things (such as voice dialing contacts, text messages, calendar, news, sports and weather). We are not attempting to be a jack of all trades but instead a best in class app for reading email out loud.
