Today, we're excited to see the fruits of our labors announced via TechCrunch, "Vinli Partners With Dash To Make Cars Even Smarter." This is great news for developers everywhere looking at the car as the next frontier for innovation and opportunity. Vinli intends to be the best platform for developing apps for the automobile across make and model.
Vinli is building an App Engine for connected car developers and has just partnered with one of the biggest players in the growing space: Dash Labs.
The two competitors are joining forces to jointly advance their market. I spoke to Vinli’s CEO Mark Haidar and Dash’s CEO Jamyn and they’re both very excited to have each other in their lives. Haidar confessed that Dash “is the best connected car application out there” and Jamyn is just as stoked about the deal, noting that Vinli is a high quality device that’s also affordable.
This partnership is akin to Rocky finding his Bullwinkle.
The two companies are striving for the same thing so it only makes sense for them to work together. Dash will promote Vinli’s hardware and Vinli will do the same for the Dash app.
Both Dash and Vinli will continue to offer their respective API and developer platforms.
“We both care about providing the best consumer and developer experience,” Haidar told TechCrunch. “By working together, we can provide a better experience. There is no exclusivity, but we’re going to feature dash because we believe it is a great application.”
