Attention software developers! Ford just put together an essential tool to help you create the next great app for the car. It’s called the Ford SYNC 3 AppLink Emulator software.
Historically, software developers who’ve wanted to create a mobile app to be used with Ford’s SYNC system have faced a certain challenge. Namely, how can you design an app that interacts with the behavior of a vehicle without having a Ford vehicle on hand with the SYNC 3 system aboard? That’s the exact problem that this exciting new software solves.
The way it works is the development team installs the Ford SYNC 3 AppLink Emulator software on their computer system. With a prototype loaded on a smartphone, they connect the phone to the computer and it simulates being connected to the SYNC 3 system. From there, they can simulate various driving conditions like speed and weather.
If there weren’t already a plethora of apps to enhance your Ford driving experience, this software is bound to inspire lots more creativity.
