Parrot has taken steps to announce a new bunch of apps to their Asteroid Market, which has been touted to be the most advanced platform of applications which were specially dedicated to vehicles. Some of these apps include Facebook for Asteroid and Asteroid Mail among others, which might eventually see a greater number of users jump ship to board the Asteroid vessel. Right now, the Parrot Asteroid range has been touted to be the most advanced consumer range of connected solutions running on Android for the car, and this announcement would certainly place it on par to be the first platform to download applications adapted to in-vehicle use.
The Asteroid Smart, Tablet and Mini were launched in March earlier this year, and one was able to access a range of apps – both free and paid which have been dedicated to the car, and with Facebook for Asteroid, it is the first app from Facebook designed for the automotive environment. You can now stay in touch safely while behind the wheel, including seeing what your mates are up to, sharing updates, photos and videos, receive notifications when friends like and comment on their posts, text, chat and have group conversations, play games, use their favorite Facebook apps and check in wherever they go. Other apps include Asteroid Mail, VLC, Recargo, Glympse, and Roadhub.
