How Safe Are Apps in the Automobile?

Get ready for an app invasion in your car... lots and lots of apps. They can make your driving fun, entertaining, more useful, and save you money. And despite your first thoughts, they can also be used safely.

Ford (NYSE: F  ) has opened up its in-dash entertainment and communications system, SYNC, to all app developers -- and this open developer program won the company an Editor's Choice award from Popular Mechanics at the recent International CES in Las Vegas.
