Ford Sync Has new Apps Coming

Posted by Alan at 8:52 AM on February 14, 2012

Ford has established themselves as the auto-maker of the tech generation, with their innovative in-car technologies like “Sync”, which was a Microsoft technology that they were the first to license.  Last month at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas they unveiled several new apps that will be coming to the service.

The list included NPR Radio, for those who can’t live without their “This American Life” fix (guilty), Stitcher Radio, Tune-In Radio, and IHeartRadio.  In addition, they debuted Sync Destinations and announced that Scout, another location app, will be integrating into Sync in the future.  Be sure to watch the video below to get a demonstration of how all of these apps, running on your phone, will integrate right into the Sync touch-screen built into your Ford car.  Your phone, and it’s apps, will integrate into your car right over a Bluetooth connection.

Currently Ford is not only looking at adding Sync to all new vehicles, but actually looking at ways that they can add it to previously released vehicles.  All of the Sync features are voice-controlled.  You’ll hear a complete list of features and vehicles in the video.
