You should be ashamed BMW This piece of s**t doesn't work anymore with my LG G5 and BMW i3. While it worked I was very irritated to notice that only a fraction of the apps that work on iPhone works on Android, and it sure isn't androids fault. I cannot believe that BMW thinks it is OK to have such a disgraceful app.
Complete rubbish. Zero stars! Embarrassingly terrible. Worked reasonably well with iPhone (which now even has an updated version available). Now on Android and no support for Web radio, or even a subset of the already small number of apps that worked on iOS. A total slap in the face to those of us who have spent huge amounts of cash on an expensive car.
Whst a massiva letdown Being in the app-business myself I know what a chore it is to support many Android versions on multiple telephone platforms. But the support width of BMW for their Connected app must surely be an absolute industry low-point. Shame! Update:now have a brand new Samsung Galaxy S7. No BMW support for this either. One wonders what dolts BMW have employed for Android development. Guys. It's not that difficult. Make an effort! Fix this!
P*ss poor Doesn't work in any designed way. I can play Spotify on my phone abd get it out of the L7 HK super system however I have no function above pressing play on my phone. Zero interface. Where is the UX/UI bmw? This is dog poop quite frankly. Clearly you don't pay your coders and designers very much!
So very disappointed. Had an iphone but couldn't get texts etc working with the car. BMW support tell me it's because Apple lock everything down. Went for brand new Galaxy S7 edge, Guess what still no texts etc. and now can't use Deezer, apparently this app is only useful if you have an iphone??? Come on improve this so Deezer on Android works as on the iphone!!!!!
Doesnt work and causes other apps to not work Installed this app on my Galaxy S5 running marshmallow. Firstly, it doesn't actually allow me to hear the music or podcasts that I select on my idrive (and are showing as playing on the phone, which is connected via USB) when using the app. More troubling, as long as the app is installed on my phone, it causes all my other audio player and podcast apps on my phone to regularly and randomly pause when I am using them (when I'm not even in my bmw). Have had to resort to uninstalling the app.
