Slacker Radio has announced it has joined the lineup of smartphone apps that Ford drivers can control with their voice through the optional SYNC AppLink available on many new Ford models. Slacker Radio allows users of the app the widest range of personalized music and information content through its free and subscription radio services it offers. Kings Ford in Cincinnati, Ohio commends Ford's continuous effort to keep drivers safer on the roads by reducing hands-on and visual distractions. Consumers looking to purchase a new Ford in Cincinnati are encouraged to explore this and other optional safety and convenience features now available when purchasing a new vehicle. Kings Ford also offers a wide variety of used Fords in Cincinnati for buyers to consider as well.

The SYNC AppLink is available as an optional feature on these new Fords in Cincinnati: the 2012 Ford Fusion, Fusion Hybrid, Fiesta, Mustang, F-150, F-150 SVT Raptor, Super Duty, Expedition, E-Series and Shelby GT500. When shopping at the Kings Ford dealership, all of these quality vehicles are available in their showroom and on their lot to be previewed and test driven.

Doug VanDagens, director of Ford Connected Services, says, “Customers now have so many options for accessing music and information. Ford SYNC AppLink allows us to not only keep pace with what they are listening to, but how they are listening to it. With its huge music library, Slacker Radio dramatically increases the content options for Ford drivers.”

To use Slacker with AppLink, drivers need merely to update the Slacker Radio app on their smartphones to the latest version. Slacker with AppLink is now available on Android and BlackBerry with iOS, pending approval.
“Slacker listeners can create their own custom stations by selecting their favorite artists and songs, or listen to any of more than 150 stations curated by expert DJs who love the music they play,” said Steve Cotter, senior vice president of Business Development at Slacker Radio. “When they’re not in the mood for music, Slacker listeners can tune in to a wide variety of personalized talk content including personalized comedy, ABC News and ESPN Radio stations.”
