OPEL targets iPhone users with great apps
OPEL FLEXAPP, a series of tools in an iPhone app, are designed to help with everything from parking, shopping, holidays, business and finding the right playlist to suit a mood - offering drivers useful tools that help reach their destination in a simple, efficient and enjoyable way.
And, Astra fans also get a special surprise: There are three entertaining additional applications that allow them to star in their own Astra ad, listen to some music or try their hand at an Astra driving game.
‘Innovation is in our genes. Our engineers recognised that iPhone users increasingly are demanding software to make their lives easier,’ says Alain Visser, Vice President Sales, Marketing and Aftersales.
‘The Opel FlexApp offers a bundle of tools that can be personalised and used every day, both in and out of the car.’
FlexApp will be enhanced with further tools such as the City Guide to provide the app with longevity. The application will grow each year to include more functions, so it will continue to provide benefit to its users.
Available at iTunes stores for free-downloading, the Opel FlexApp (http://itunes.apple.com/app/flexapp/id409786653?mt=8) helps users find parking spaces, keep track of the time left on the meter and remember where their car is parked. It can also assist in creating shopping lists and finding the best shops. FlexApp can even lend a hand in organising the next holiday. Users can even record a memo and send it - once they have safely parked the car.
Need to chill out after a hard day at work? Opel FlexApp will create playlists based on a mood. Don't like one of the selections? Users can simply skip to the next song and the FlexApp Mood Player changes the song.
The Hot Spot function helps to select key points of interest and contact details for restaurants, hotels, Opel dealers etc. Users will be guided to their preferred location via routing, and they can choose between the fastest and shortest route and export the configuration to Google Maps or Navigon.
True to Opel philosophy, the FlexApp is flexible in that it can be personalised. Users have the option of customising their home screen. The six tools can be relocated and activated/deactivated on the home screen. Users can select all or only one to utilise on any given day.
