Ford Motor Company announced the launch of Sync AppLink, a downloadable software program enabling auto owners to access Android and BlackBerry smartphone applications via voice commands and vehicle controls. Debuting in association with the 2011 Ford Fiesta, Sync AppLink promises to seamlessly integrate apps with the driver experience, improving eyes-on-the-road and hands-on-the-wheel time; the first wave of Sync-enabled apps, available later this year, includes Pandora web radio, Stitcher “smart radio” and Orangatame’s OpenBeak app for Twitter. Android Market and BlackBerry App World will offer updated versions of each app incorporating the Sync API; in addition, Ford will introduce the Sync Mobile Application Developer Network, offering developer tools and resources to collaborate with the automaker on new apps.

The Sync in-car communications and infotainment system is currently standard on all 2010 Lincoln models and available on select 2010 Ford and Mercury models. The service allows drivers to operate most MP3 players, Bluetooth-enabled phones and USB drives using voice commands–additional features include turn-by-turn navigation, realtime traffic updates and business search tools
