Ford drives apps for navigation, social, fun

Sharon Gaudin | Jan. 9, 2013
Ford Motor Co. is looking to integrate drivers' favorite apps into their cars, giving them someone to read them the morning newspaper, along with an app to find them the site of their next great date.

Ford also is working with the Kaliki app, which offers human-read read content from newspapers and magazines, like OK!, TV Guide, Shape and Men's Fitness.

If someone wants their friends and family to know where they are while they're driving around town or across the country, Ford is working with the Glympse app.

Glympse is designed to enable drivers to share their location via email, Facebook or Twitter. The driver -- or possibly a young driver's parents -- tell the app who to give the information to and for how long.
