Apple’s iPhone app catch phrase, there’s an app for that, will soon apply to the all-electric Ford Focus car too. Ford’s video demo embedded above demonstrates some of the app’s features. It works with the Ford SYNC technology built into the car itself.
The app will feature social networking components, charge station location information, navigation, remote control of the car (start, pre-warm, etc.), driving and braking profiles, and more.
Ford’s Manager for Product and Business Development – Ford Connected Services – Bill Frykman demonstrated the app on an iPhone. He noted during the demo that it would also be available for Android and BlackBerry too. I found it interesting that he did not mention support for Windows Phone too sinc the Ford SYNC technology in the Ford Focus (and other Ford cars) is based on Microsoft Windows Embedded.
