I have talked about Ford’s Sync system more than a few times. The system allows you to control various things in the car including car systems and your phone with your voice so you don’t have to take your hands off the wheel or eyes of the road. Ford has also worked with devs to enable some apps on smartphones to be controlled using your voice with AppLink. One of those apps is the iHeartRadio app.
The iHeartRadio app is now available on the Blackberry platform for smartphones and it is AppLink enabled for the Ford Sync system. If you have a Blackberry and a Ford car with the Sync system supporting AppLink you can download the iHeartRadio app on the Blackberry App World right now.
The app allows you to hit the Sync button in the vehicle and tell the app what you want to do. You can search for local stations by saying “Cities” and sort local stations by genre using the voice command “genre.” You can also save a station you like to favorites using the “favorites” voice command. The new app hit this month and is in version 1.0 and needs Blackberry OS 5.0.0 or higher.
