How about developing apps for your car!

Ford has launched its mobile App Development program for its infotainment systems. This enables developers to comes up with ingenious apps that connects the car to the users connected life.

A basic example is BeCouply which integrates with the voice controls in the vehicle to find date ideas around where you are driving.

Ford already has the major players such as Pandora and tunein etc. developed in time for the launch.

The beauty of this program is Ford knows knows its place in the digital world and has not created its own ‘exclusive’ app store. Instead Ford will direct users to the app store the developer has put the app on, thus giving maximum coverage to the developer and maximum potential for the app to succeed, which also helps Ford.

Great vision from Ford. It will be exciting to see what is developed and how far the developers can take the Ford infotainment systems.
