New Ford In-Car App is a ‘First’


PR newswire - January 7, 2013

Using Ford SYNC® AppLink, dri­vers can now voice-command and con­trol a smart­phone app to lis­ten to their favorite news­pa­per con­tent while driving.

Get the details on the new level of keep­ing up to date.

Thanks to Kaliki Audio News­stand and Ford SYNC® AppLink, com­mut­ing time can now be put to bet­ter use by con­sum­ing some of the com­pelling news­pa­per and mag­a­zine con­tent that we want to get to, but just never seem to find the time to read.

Kaliki part­ners with top pub­lish­ers in a wide vari­ety of media gen­res such as Shape Mag­a­zine, TV Guide, Men’s Fit­ness, OK! and Agence France-Presse. Today at CES, BT Soft­ware also announces the roll­out of local news­pa­pers in Kaliki, start­ing with the Los Ange­les and Detroit markets.

If the dri­ver wants to lis­ten to another pro­gram, it is just a but­ton press away with the voice com­mand “Pro­grams – [name of pro­gram].” The dri­ver can pause the play­back or skip to the next or pre­vi­ous story at any time by tap­ping the play/pause or track but­tons on the steer­ing wheel or radio. All con­tent is fed to the driver’s ears while hands stay on the steer­ing wheel and eyes stay on the road.
