Default synch Help with Mobile apps

I have a 2012 FX4 with navigation and voice activiation. I think the synch 1. I have a selection for mobile apps but says I have none as it needs synch associated apps to run.

I am looking at ford - synch trying to find out what apps are compatible...anyone have any clue of what apps are compatible and / or where to read up on it all.

thank you all.

iHeart radio, Pandora, Amazon music, Slacker Radio. Those are the only 4 I know for a fact work. You can check the settings of each app and see if it has a check box for use with Ford sync or launch from car or something like that.

In order for sync to know they are available for the 1st time you have to say mobile apps after you launch the app, from then on it'll be listed in mobile apps and voice command by app name will work.

EDIT: I speak from Android experience, no clue how it works with iOS.
