TUNEIN RADIO joins the list of smartphone apps that are compatible with the SYNC® AppLink found in FORD vehicles. The TUNEIN RADIO app will be available for use with vehicles equipped with SYNC AppLink, and will provide drivers with another listening option that can be controlled hands-free through voice commands.
"Smartphone apps have ingratiated themselves into the lives of consumers to such a degree that we have come to depend on them for much of our news and entertainment," FORD CONNECTED SERVICES Global Dir. DOUG VANDAGENS said. "With the addition of TUNEIN, SYNC is reflecting that trend while dramatically increasing the global listening choices for FORD drivers."
"TUNEIN captivates people by offering unprecedented access to listen to anything they want from local talk radio to live sports to music," TUNEIN CEO JOHN DONHAM said. "With TUNEIN, FORD drivers can now more easily enjoy the world’s audio from their favorite hometown stations to broadcasts half a world away, making listening even more global and personal."
TUNEIN is available in 10 languages and on more than 150 devices across all major smartphones and tablets, connected home stereos, smart TVs, car dashboards and online at www.tunein.com. The SYNC-enabled version of TUNEIN RADIO soon will be available through the iTUNES App Store
