How to install mobile apps on Sync?

Hello Group;

I can’t figure how to install mobile apps on my sync? Where can I find mobile apps to download and how to install them? Are we supposed to do it from the car or are we to use the Lincoln Way app on your phone?
 
Never mind I don’t know why they have a find mobile apps button on sync when you need to install the apps from the App Store if you have an iPhone or google play if you have an android. I did some searching and couldn’t find a list of apps that will work with sync; but ended up finding this list from another forum.
