Ford’s New Lifestyle Apps

Newer models today come loaded with the latest technology—from navigation systems, keyless entry and cameras to cover every angle of your vehicle—car makers today are considering other factors when trying to figure out what new technology they can integrate to create a better driving experience. It’s no surprise that with the surge of smart phone ownership among consumers that automakers are focusing in on syncing your vehicle with your ever-present phone

Ford has recently revealed several new apps for it’s SYNC® AppLink™ at this years International CES in Las Vegas. Available on select vehicles, the SYNC® AppLink™ allows the driver to control apps from your smart phone through a voice commands and buttons on the steering wheel.

There are some typical apps they revealed—Aha by HARMAN gives you access to over thousands of audio stations and the Rhapsody app provides on-demand music—with the voice command feature in tow.

One app that seems out-of-the-box for Ford is BeCouply, an app featuring dating tips like where to go on a date. So as some driving themed apps become more standard, it’s interesting to see what other apps carmakers come up with that still somehow integrate the use of the vehicle.
