Audi has announced the release of a new iPhone game and an iPhone-optimized website as a promotion for its upcoming 2009 model A4 car. Audi A4 Driving Challenge, available as a free download from the App Store, is an overhead-view racing title that uses accelerometer- and screen-based controls to let the user drive the new A4 through a series of five progressively more challenging courses. Alongside the game, Audi has also launched an iPhone-formatted website for the A4, offering users content on the A4, specialized videos, wallpapers, an exterior color customizer, and a dealer locator.

It´s really hard to control…

Audi has little commitment to the iPod, unlike most other car company.

Audi switched from the high performance Bose systems to the unproven and gimmicky Bang & Olufsen systems.  Audi has built tens of thousands of cars without any provision to connect an iPod or any other MP3 player.  Only in the last few weeks have iPod-capable cars come out of Ingolstadt, and dealers have only order a very few of them.

So anyone thinking that Audi is providing an iPod solution?  Fuggitabout it, and buy a BMW or Lexus instead.  Audi isn’t the cutting edge company that they used to be years ago.
