Man what did you people do to this app? It has ZERO connectivity, less usefulness that I Remote, and looks awful. I have yet to get this thing to give me an update status....it never works. You guys have rendered this app utterly useless. The app never shows how much electric range I have, it never connect show my vehicle status, never shows where my vehicle is parked or located, over 2/3rds of the time it fails to open/close doors, etc. It's useless.
Was already spotty... with last update they totally trashed it up... simply nothing works... how a company like BMW can be so careless? It is their primary business card to their customers
Since latest update, app starts up then crashes and shut down rendering it useless. Please fix.
The first update a couple days ago worked fine on my Pixel XL. I wasn't having any crash issues as others are reporting. So this last one pally won't affect me. Anyway, this app is now finally useful! I'm comparing it to the iRemote app. They've now added the ability to edit the delayed/TOU charging functionality as well as show efficiency statistics of the last trip. I haven't tested delayed/TOU feature yet, though. The only thing i think it's missing from the iRemote app is the fun stuff like the community stats and personal efficiency history. One new thing I noticed is for activating climate control. They've now added notification as each step completes! That was the most annoying thing about both the iRemote and initial versions of this app. You would have no way of really knowing if it was a succuss unless you kept the app active and stared at it until it finished. That was annoying because sometimes it takes awhile for the servers and car to communicate. Now a little fan pops up in the notification area and gives you 3 status updates as each step completes. It also looks like they've resolved the logout issue as of 3 updates ago. I haven't been logged out since then. Finally, the Android supported connected apps are still the same old 3. No additions. They've created a hub section showing the apps, but support hasn't been improved compared to iOS. This doesn't affect me much since i don't use this feature, but for others that use Spotify, etc. you're out of luck.
First bmw and my last bmw, get with the times....absolutely useless app.....
