Ford Debuts Voice-Control Of Smartphone Apps, But Not For iPhone

Illustration for article titled Ford Debuts Voice-Control Of Smartphone Apps, But Not For iPhone

Ford's adding voice control for Android and Blackberry apps like Pandora to their SYNC in-car infotainment system. Now the only risk in "thumbing up" a Dave Matthews Band song while driving is to your cred. But where's the iPhone control?

The Microsoft-based system doesn't support the iPhone yet for app control, despite the phone's popularity. The iPhone still works for other features, such as streaming music, but Apple users will have to reach down and fool with it by hand if they want to read their Twitter stream. Or maybe they can suck it up and focus on the road for a few minutes and wait to see what @BoringFriend23 thought about the new @SurferBlood video.

Demonstrations of how the system works in the next three videos.
