At least that was my impression. Also, we're supposed to get Sync updated sometime in the future so that we 2012 users can use applink.

Nope, not for MFT.

Agree with Slybarman.
If you have MFT, you don't have AppLink.
Even on 2013 Ford's in general.

As far as Ford getting it to us 2012 MFT owners, that fiddle has been playing for well over a year so far. I'll be amazed if it ever happens.

The confusion is due to Ford's naming choices...

MyFord

MyFord Touch

Easy to confuse....if you have "MyFord".... you have Applink...NOT "MyFord Touch"...

The naming hasn't ever confused me. I thought the 13's had it built into MFT. Lame.

It's just software, they can fix it if they want but it's not a priority.

I posted this in another thread, but you can see a lot of people are not pleased with it.

With MFT be something of a hot mess I imagine they are afraid adding any new functionality is bound to break some stuff.

That's odd. I have a 2013 titanium model and I definitely have applink on MFT. I can control apps on my phone using the dashboard.

What apps? Nothing I have read as of late regarding MFT and Applink has been updated, it's not available and I have a 2013 Titanium also.

There is an option to install "Apps" under Settings, but nothing in the latest Sync updates notes Applink being available.
