Car Connectivity Consortium

App Developer Conference


This year at MWC, MirrorLink™ was all about developers. The devcon offered everything attendees needed to know to efficiently create and deploy the world’s next generation of connected-car apps, whether they’re drive-aware versions of the ones we know and love or apps built specifically to enhance the connected driving experience. MirrorLink offers a one-stop-shop for interoperability between today’s most popular smartphones and cars. At MWC, the entire mobile ecosystem will have its eye on businesses that will transform our mobile lifestyles. And when it comes to apps, cars are a vast and relatively unclaimed territory.
