So many things missing….

I don’t usually bother with reviewing apps, but…

App was updated a couple days ago and:

* now reports expected drive time both with and without climate control — very nice.

* no longer reports remaining time to full charge — boo and hiss!

* still asking to allow remote connection every time

There are other small things it should do but doesn’t:

* identify the driver/profile on connect
* allow multiple profiles

I’d prefer to see the irritating little things fixed before any new and improved features (which I probably won’t use anyway). Right now, with the rough edges, it still feels like a beta release.

Super annoying to have installed

The app works… okay ish. There are a few huge issues it has though:

- App prompts for permission to connect to the car *constantly*. Like, if you are within 10’ of the car it will trigger a prompt - while using other apps - to allow permission to connect. It does this when you’re in the car, already connected via CarPlay or whatever. It does this while walking by the car. It does this while unloading the car. It does this while charging the car. It literally hijacks your phone anytime you are near it. It’s to the point that I might just uninstall it entirely because I get no benefit from it.
- If app has permission to access location data, it will mark itself as a navigation app and stay running in the background (draining battery life). Even when you aren’t doing anything with it. It just… really, really wants to know where your phone is all the time, even if you are nowhere near your car. This is a HUGE red flag.
- App doesn’t enable EV routing features in Apple Maps, which is super close to being a deal breaker
- Digital Key doesn’t integrate with the iOS CarKey framework, so it relies on being able to pair via Bluetooth

All in all - the app is a case study in how not to make an iOS app for electric vehicles. You’re better off not using it at all than using the small number of features it enables.

Update took features away

So the app was pretty barren to begin with. Just some really basic info and functions for the car. Saw there was an update and thought “finally, they are moving out of the EV dark ages to provide some decent functionality.” Nope. They took features away. I used to be able to actively see the charge percentage of the car. Now, I can only see the last updated are of charge. Refresh does not update. The most annoying part. The car also doesn’t show percentage of charge - just “miles” and “time” to full charge. The tech with this app and car is abysmal - and even worse with the update. Great car, terrible technology.
