Welcome to Apptown

A digital ecosystem for offering growth

This is the place to come to accelerate the growth of your service offering. In Apptown, OEMs can open up strictly controlled access to vehicles for third party developers through APIs. This lets others build new apps and services that benefit the vehicle users, allowing for a rapid expansion of services available. Services and apps are sold through an OEM-controlled digital store that manages content, payments and revenue sharing.
