The all-new Ford EcoSport will be the first Applink-enabled Ford vehicle to hit European roads.
We spent last week in Las Vegas along with 150,000 other tech enthusiasts to see all that’s new in electronics, gadgetry and connected cars. Our team gave hundreds of demos and showcased Aha’s latest to content and automotive partners, future partners, reporters, and analysts who stopped by our tent just outside of the LV Convention Center north and central halls.
At CES way back in January, Aha announced a contract with Honda, a very exciting milestone for our team.
Today, Aha and Honda shared more details of that partnership as Honda unveiled HondaLinkTM, a new, personalized driving experience that streams a world of information and entertainment to Honda vehicles. The HondaLink system featuring Aha content will first roll out in the all-new 2013 Honda Accord later this year.
Totally forgot to mention last week, but not only have we added more flexibility around selecting supported languages in the app … we also added availability in more App Stores.
Aha was already available in the iTunes and Google Play app stores in the following contries:
It seems like I’ve been waiting for years for the day we would release version 2.2 of an app so I could make a Deuce-Deuce reference. Now I can tip my 40 for Eazy and tell you all about the actual Aha news.
Existing users shouldn’t see any major visual changes, but you should notice better performance on a lot of the internet radio stations, as well as a lot of new stations. That’s because we’ve rolled out 1,000s of additional AAC stations.
The votes are in, and it’s official … Aha has won the 2012 CTIA E-Tech award for Social, Media & Entertainment Mobile Application. And not to get all “humblebrag” on you, but coming away with an award like this with competition from the likes of Disney, Washington Post, and even Team COCO, is a really weird experience.
Like LeBron said, “Not one, not two, not three.” OK, well actually it is two. Aha is up for TWO awards this year in the CTIA E-Tech awards.
Sometimes you just have to let your colors show, and we did just that today.
More details to come, but I’m here to confirm that the rumors ARE TRUE! Aha is now available on Android devices. Along with the recent major update to our iOS app, we are debuting the new design and functionality for Android.
Greetings from CES in Las Vegas! The Aha team is busy making headlines and having fun demoing our first Aha integration in a Subaru BRZ. Here’s a link to the press release we issued this morning announcing that Aha will be in Subaru and Honda vehicles beginning in model year 2013.
