Does not work I have an android phone (LG G4) and this app is useless. I had an iPhone 4S before, as long as I have had my Mini, Mini connected has pretty much been a flop! It's the hugest disappointment that they advertise you can do these things and none of it works
Don't waste your time Have given this app several tries to redeem itself and it still won't work. Useless piece of garbage and I regret even getting the connected/nav package in my countryman. Do yourself a favor and save money and don't get the connected/nav upgrade because nothing works.
IPhone- yes, Android- no My husband has an iPhone and it works beautifully. I have an Android and it won't do anything. I gave it a two stars because I've seen it work on my husband's phone and it's great. I give it zero stars for me because I am unable to get it to work at all. So sad!
Garbage Will only play mp3's. Why does the iPhone version have so much more capability? No Spotify or Pandora for Android? It's sad and ridiculous.
1/21/16 - An update rolled out two days ago. The audio player is working great now and overall reliability is much improved. All available apps appear to function as intended. (YOU MUST HAVE GEN-3 MINI SOFTWARE IN YOUR CAR!) 12/28/15 - An update released early Dec. trashed the Audio player; it no longer functions. Additionally, it will not always connect to the other imbedded apps/functions. Prior to this Dec. update it worked great. Recommend waiting for the next update push (if there is one). 8/10/15 - June 2015 updates are vast improvements. The audio player via USB is fantastic as there's no volume loss like when connected via Bluetooth and you can control your player at the console. 11/18/14 - I'm a technologist by career and an optimist in life, neither of those could carry me this app. What little functionality offered worked fine, but the numerous cons outweighed the mostly absent pros. (Note: I have a 2015 F56 w/ Mini Connected & Visual Boost, and a Samsung S4)
Wont connect with Galaxy S4 that has Android 5.01 I have a 2015 Countryman S All4, well that is based on 2nd gen MINI technology, so will never work. The app finally says it is for 3rd gen MINIs only. :(
