GM fans the world over are quickly becoming aware that The General’s recently-released smartphone apps are the bee’s knees when it comes to the integration of the automobile and personal technology. Unfortunately, only those in the U.S. have had access to these awesome applications, leaving our Canadian counterparts out of the picture. But that will soon change.
According to our well-placed sources, the OnStar MyLink app, along with the entire range of GM’s branded apps, including myChevrolet, myBuick, myGMC, and myCadillac, will soon be available in the Canadian iTunes App Store. How soon, exactly, is not yet known.
At the time of this writing, the apps are available in the United States App Store, but are not in the Canadian adaptation. Canadian iTunes users who click the iTunes links at the bottom of this post will be told that the download is not available to those in Canada. What’s more, the apps are currently not visible in the Canadian App Store and will not show up in a search.
If you have any information as to the timing of the release of these apps, please let us know either by contacting us directly or leaving a comment below. Hat tip to John.
