Keepy appy – football scores on the move

March 4, 2015

Here’s a thought. Of the 1,000-plus goals scored in the Barclays Premier League each season, how many do you miss through being in the car?

Careful planning – or luck – sometimes means you catch a game on the radio. But what if family or friends want to listen to something else?

Help is at hand.

Drivers can now access the Goal Live Scores app through our voice-activated system SYNC with AppLink.

Available for Android phones, the app delivers updates via the audio system within seconds of a goal being scored. And it’s not just the Barclays Premier League. The app enables drivers to follow more than 750 leagues worldwide – including those in Germany, Italy, and Spain, the FIFA World Cup, UEFA European Championship, and UEFA Champions League.

Fans simply choose favourite teams and leagues, to follow selected matches.

 

We announced the Goal Live Scores app at global tech fair Mobile World Congress, in Barcelona, as well as radio app Soundtracker.

Offering more than 32 million tracks, and available for Android and iOS, the Soundtracker app enables drivers to play personalised and favourite stations, and to listen to those created by friends and other users.

Apps already available in the U.K. include Spotify and Roald Dahl Audiobooks.
“Across the world AppLink helps customers integrate their devices and the apps they know and love into their car,” said Don Butler, executive director, Connected Vehicle and Services, Ford Motor Company. “These new apps, ensure drivers won’t have to wait to know when their team scores, and can easily access music and radio shows, while keeping their eyes on the road and their hands on the wheel.”
