Ford today announced that it is working with developers to bring smartphone applications to the dashboards of its cars via its SYNC technology. It is making a software development kit (SDK) and application programming interfaces (APIs) available to developers so they can modify existing apps to work hands-free using voice recognition through Ford SYNC. Ford believes this will lead to safer driving. Ford is initially targeting applications such as news, weather, entertainment, location-based services, financial and scheduling services. Ford also announced that it has adopted the Message Access Profile (MAP) Bluetooth profile, which will allow Ford's SYNC-equipped cars to read incoming text messages and emails aloud to drivers. Drivers will also be able to dictate messages, though they will be limited to 15 preset responses.
