Radio Disney, Inc. Key Developments

Ford Motor Company to Integrate Radio Disney Smartphone App with Available Ford SYNC AppLink

Ford Motor Company has announced that it will integrate Radio Disney app for iOS and Android platforms with available Ford SYNC AppLink. Radio Disney smartphone app will soon be available to Ford SYNC AppLink users. Drivers will be able to stream music devoted to kids, tweens and families 24 hours a day inside a Ford vehicle at the touch of a button. While there are many music-streaming apps currently compatible with AppLink, Radio Disney is the first family-oriented music app. Drivers will be able to keep the entire family entertained while keeping their eyes on the road and their hands on the steering wheel." The Radio Disney app goes to work when the driver connects his or her smartphone to available Ford SYNC via Bluetooth. A static image of an artist's CD cover will display on the screen along with play and pause buttons, allowing the driver to make music elections. With added integration of Ford SYNC AppLink technology in the Radio Disney app, kids can share their favorite music and programming in-car for a safe and interactive entertainment experience." Ford set the benchmark for in-car connectivity with SYNC. Through a paired mobile phone, Ford SYNC allows drivers to make and receive calls, as well as operate other features hands-free using voice controls. With Ford SYNC AppLink, customers can control their compatible apps using voice commands or buttons on the vehicle display. With the launch of available SYNC 3, Ford's next-generation communications and entertainment system, AppLink will automatically discover and load the Radio Disney app onto the in-vehicle screen.
