CES 2013: Ford introduces nine new apps

1:54 /

Ford announced a new app developer program for Sync AppLink, along with a host of newly compatible apps, including Rhapsody and the Wall Street Journal.

-Hi, I'm Wayne Cunningham here at CES 2013 at the Ford booth looking at the new apps that Ford has integrated with SYNC AppLink. Now, all the apps with SYNC AppLink run on a phone---- in this case, an android phone paired by Bluetooth to the said unit. You can also use an iPhone cabled up to the device. Ford announced nine new apps here to join the other like ten that they already have. So if we go into the mobile apps menu, we can see that we got Aha streaming. That's actually one of the new apps that they've added. And if we go into that menu, we can actually see that it's playing the 404 which has went to our CNET Podcast. And Aha has about 30,000 channels that you can choose from. I can scroll through and see the other apps we have installed here. We have Glympse which gives you where your current location and you can send that to your friends. We've got iHeartRadio which, of course, has a lot of internet radio stations. We've got Kaliki which actually reads out news articles to you. They actually have professional readers reading this out so you can hear the news while you're driving. We've got NPR News. That's when they've had for awhile. Pandora, again, another one. And here, we have Rhapsody which is, of course, on-demand internet music. You get all of those in your car with this new service. They also have the Wall Street Journal and USA Today for news and a few other apps that you can do everything, listen to music or get location information. And all the apps are running on this android phone which is paired by Bluetooth to the car. You can also use an iPhone but you have to use to have that cabled with the car. And then, of course, you can use all the voice commands and stuff with the new SYNC app. So, that's it. Ford has added nine new apps here at CES 2013. I'm Wayne Cunningham for CNET.
