Timbrook Ford in Keyser, WV is pleased to share that Ford Drivers will now be able to access daily deals around them using Roximity a daily deal that connects through SNYC Applink.
Online PR News – 15-August-2012 – Cumberland, MD – Timbrook Ford is pleased to announce Roximity, a GPS-enabled daily deal app will be available for all Ford cars that have Ford SYNC. This app will allow users to find daily deals that are relevant to their interest, while still in the car. This allows users to turn their vehicle into a rolling bargain hunter, saving them time and money.
Roximity was actually part of the Ford SYNC App Developer Challenge. Ford challenged developers world-wide to come up with a relevant app that would appeal to consumers. The applications creators, Danny Newman, Austin Gayer, and Joe Mease; submitted the application last year and won first place.
The app itself runs on the same principle as other currently popular daily coupon and deal specials. Sites such as LivingSocial or Groupon, shows daily deals that are currently running in the users location. Roximity takes this a step further by allowing users to tailor the app to show them only deals of interest to them, but also that are close to them.
The app is downloaded onto the user’s phone, but thanks to the Developers Challenge, users can then integrate it wirelessly though their Ford by using SYNC Applink. This allows for hands free use while driving. The operators of the car simply speaks there command, ‘Find a lunch deal.’ And the car will then pull up various options that a tailored to the users preferences. Once an option is selected, the car will then help the user find the location by providing directions.
The app is currently only available on an iOS system, and is available in the Apple App Store. Support for android devices is currently in development.
