Today's Samsung pre-IFA event was less about mobile than we've seen over the past couple of weeks, but there were a few tidbits here and there, including the new Car Mode For Galaxy, an app developed in conjunction with Volkswagen aimed at lessening distractions for drivers.

The in-car dashboard app utilizes MirrorLink to integrate a smartphone and the car's info system to let users take calls, listen to music and read incoming text messages through dashboard or steering wheel controls or with Samsung's S-Voice personal assistant. The app will be available across Samsung Galaxy devices, including the newly released Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus.
