Toyota shows off their new Entune in-car multimedia system, which couples Andriod, iPhone, and BlackBerry phones with a touchscreen experience in Prius and other Toyota models shipping in 2011.
Just download the Entune mobile app to applicable phones, and you can access a variety of in-car applications from your phone. You can control the applications by using the touch screen or voice commands. Apps which can be used with Entune include Pandora, OpenTable, iHeartRadio, MovieTickets and more. Grab the hottest sports scores and newest weather forecasts with the touch of a button or bring the power of a decision engine to your car with Bing. Bing’s voice-activated search and organized results will let you travel with ease.
OpenTable, the provider of real-time (and free!) online restaurant reservations has released a version for the iPad. Developed in close collaboration with Sequence, the OpenTable iPad app incorporates all of the unique features iPhone users are used to. It also puts even more information at your fingertips. The large screen on the iPad means that you can see more details than ever, making it easier to find that perfect location for your dinner.
For those of you without an Apple device to use this great app on, OpenTable also has an extensive web interface to guide you in your search. There are more than 13,000 top restaurants using OpenTable’s Restaurant Management Software to help make it simple for you to get your reservations made.
OpenTable has saved my butt a few times. Imagine having people want to get together for dinner at the last minute. That makes it tough to get a table at many restaurants. OpenTable makes it a breeze. You can search for the perfect place that has a menu to accommodate everyone’s taste, and confirm a table at the time you choose.
The app is also handy if you’re visiting a city you’re not used to. How the heck are you supposed to just know where the local hotspots are located? Use OpenTable as a guide to finding the best place for a great meal.
