The Meople.Connector social media app is a new Ford app that allows drivers to stay connected to their social media accounts when driving, without being distracted. This particular app allows drivers to listen to, answer and if they so choose, ignore updates all by voice command. The app uses Ford's SYNC AppLink system, which is designed to allow users to access and control apps right on their smartphone.
The social media app also alerts drivers to new messages. They can then use voice commands to instruct the app to either read, answer or skip the message. They can also respond to messages using pre-programmed responses that can be customized. Their location can also be shared with friends, family and others.
Ultimately, the Meople.Connector is making the inevitable possible, by bringing social media into people's vehicles.
