    Apps for MY Ford Touch??

    Does anyone know of any apps that are uploadable to our MY FORD TOUCH? What is the purpose of this? Does it function similar to a phone? Games?

    No clue! I thought it had to do with Fords "AppLink" that I've seen ads for, but apparently the Focus isn't supported for AppLink. I found no other info regarding the Upload Apps feature, or why it's even an option. Maybe a future software update will allow certain apps (iHeartRadio, whatever) to be placed right into the system (where a virus will take over your car and speed you to your doom!!!!!!)

    AppLink means it can control apps on your phone that are compatible. Pandora is an example of a compatible program - you can use voice commands to load the app, play/pause, skip tracks, etc. Ford's site says App Link is supposed to become available on the 2013 Focus but no idea if it made it into the ST.

    AppLink is integrated with Sync, so it should be available to those with Sync. It supports phone apps (mostly music) like Slacker Radio, Pandora, MOG, but it also has MLB.com At Bat. For more info see:

    There are only a few apps that are compatible now.... I guess Pandora and/or Slacker would be OK, but with Sirius for (at least) 6 months, not sure I need them....

    I've used slacker before on my phone and it was decent - guess I'll go see if I can figure that out, though like ganpar says, it's pretty much superfluous with Sirius, but there are a couple of stations on slacker I like better than their Sirius equivalents.

    I had been wondering what AppLink was - thanks, guys!
