Livio Offers Livio Connect to App Developers at 'Freemium' Pricing
Jan 10, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Livio announced that Livio Connect, the company's middleware API for integrating smartphone apps with vehicle hardware systems, is now available at "freemium" pricing for application developers.
"Going freemium was an easy decision for us," said Livio founder and CEO Jake Sigal. "We realized last year Livio Connect can help both app developers and automotive partners by creating a 'car mode' for app developers and promoting their apps to Livio-Connected OEMs, Tier1s, and middleware integrators. Our new model allows us to work with app developers of any and every size, at a price they can afford. As their automotive business grows, we participate in their success."
According to a release, the Livio Connect API is a solution for safely integrating smartphone apps into factory car audio and existing hardware systems. Sigal said the 2013 additions to the Livio Connect application network expand the in-vehicle infotainment offerings beyond music apps to include traffic, parking, weather, and navigation.
New Livio Connect application partners for 2013 CES include Accuweather, Inrix, and Parkopedia, joining our existing network consisting of 977music.com, AddictedToRadio, Digitally Imported, Greater Media, Inc., Grooveshark, JazzRadio, Live365, NPR, Rdio, RockRadio, SkyFM and TuneIn.
Livio also announced automotive head unit integrations with several companies including CSR, KPIT Cummins, Johnson Controls and Visteon.
Metro-Detroit-based Livio is a provider of solutions for in-vehicle infotainment and Smartphone application business customers through Livio Connect.
