No Mobile Applications with MFT? Pandora, for example

I recently picked up a Galaxy S4 Android phone, and was excited to hear about all of the AppLink Sync features, such as viewing song info, thumbs up/down, and loading app, right from my car instead of having to keep grabbing my phone.

However, whenever I hit my voice button and say "Mobile Applications," my car has no idea what I am talking about. I don't see any info anywhere on my MFT screen about it, either.

I can stream my Pandora music through BT stereo, but I feel like I am missing out on features that should come with me car.

Also, my wife as a Ford Fusion withOUT MFT, and it works perfectly in her car with her phone.

Am I missing something? Nothing on the internet has pointed me to an answer.

MFT does not currently support AppLink strangely enough.

Thank you for the fast reply. This seems extremely weird. I got the "fancier" car setup, yet I am missing features.

It could also be said that you have a lot more functionality. It just sucks that you don't have the one you want.

It is supposed to be added to MFT in a future update but nobody is holding their breath.

there is a menu path to install apps, but I guess Ford got overzealous and didnt realize how buggy it would be out the gate. For god's sake we dont even get applink

MFT is just barely treading with its head above water performing the most basic tasks as it is.
