SYNC AppLink – New Ford Fiesta 2011 Smartcar
We all know that is not a good idea to drive and play on your mobile phone in the same time. But now you can buy a 2011 Ford Fiesta and to do these two tasks simultaneously. The secret is called the SYNC AppLink.
The first car that will implement the new system of Internet applications will be the 2011 Ford Fiesta. The system will allow you to listen to your favorite radio directly from the Internet or your car to “read” you tweets.
SYNC communications and entertainment system developed by Microsoft and Ford launched several models of 2008, will be added a new feature. AppLink will take voice commands that can control the mobile applications for Android and BlackBerry platforms.
Initially only three applications will be supported, Pandora, Stitcher and OpenBeak, the latter being an application for Twitter. The iPhone will not be left out, as the support for its applications will be introduced later.
To control your mobile applications with your voice you have to meet several conditions, first you must buy the Ford Fiesta with the SYNC optional, and the respective applications will have to feature support for AppLink.
For this, Ford has created a community of applications developers and will provide an SDK. AppLink SYNC compatible applications can be purchased in stores of the manufacturers of the platforms they use, like Android Market and BlackBerry App World. How SYNC already has a voice synthesizer, used for reading incoming SMS on your mobile phone will probably be quite simple to use that feature with your tweets.
