Ford was first to put apps in its cars, bringing out Pandora integration in the Fiesta late last year. OpenBeak, a Twitter app, and Stitcher, which streams audio programming from the Internet, have also been announced, as has iHeartRadio on BlackBerry. To enable integration, Ford makes its Sync AppLink API available to developers, who can modify their apps to use Sync's in-car voice and manual controls. To use the apps, they have to be loaded and running on your phone, at which point the car's display will show the interface and the in-car controls will become available.
Apps: Pandora, OpenBeak, Stitcher, iHeartRadio
