Ford’s Applink Comes to Europe

Ford announced that it is introducing in Europe its Sync Applink software.

Ford made the announcement at the Midem music industry conference in France held this weekend and said that Applink, a software that controls smartphone applications and offers more voice activated services in the vehicles, will arrive in Europe by the end of 2013. The application will offer drivers the possibility to listen to songs and radio stations streamed to the vehicle via their smartphones.

Ford customers from the States are already using the service since 2012, including applications such as iHeartradio, Tunein Radio, Amazon, Rhapsody and Pandora. The automaker will also open the developer program for the Sync Applink in the UK, which will allow anyone with a great idea to create applications for a Ford vehicle.

“We understand more and more drivers are using their devices and their apps while in the car,” said Doug VanDagens, director of Ford Connected Services Solutions. “Ford is a part of the solution, offering voice-activated options such as Ford SYNC with AppLink on a broader range of our products, which gives more customers a smarter way to access their apps while driving that keeps their hands on the wheel and eyes on the road.”
