Very slow and no sensible data refresh The most logical thing you expect from such a App is to show you recent status of your car, but it falls to do so almost all the time. It will show you old days and only after App restart eventually refresh :( sending commands to the car takes ridiculous long. When registering your App, you automatically removed previous users without knowing it, so my wife could not continue using the app after I have registered. It is disappointing how such a trivial app turn out so badly.
Mostly doesn't work The only thing the app currently knows about my i3 is the set departure time. I can also precondition the car remotely, although the command takes ages to reach the car, and sometimes fails to get there. Battery charge doesn't show and the app incorrectly shows my doors unlocked no matter what the real case is. Web interface shows correct info, so the car does send the data, it's the app that's faulty. If BMW doesn't take the remote app seriously, probably not much hope for software updates on the car...
Waiting for connection to gear app On S7 edge I get force close about 10 times a day. Also a notification about galaxy gear shows up trying to connect. However I don't have a Samsung watch or other smart watch. Also sometimes the car status doesn't update. However On my Oneplus 2, the app works perfect.
Disappointing app App hangs and needs to be force closed. Kind of expected better from bmw. Concerned that this app could stop my i3 from charging and am therefore likely to stop using. BMW need to fix this app. Most feedback is similar. i3 is fantastic
Works great if you know how. Works great of you know how to use it. For you people complaining about refreshing data, exit the app from upper left corner and the data refreshes on loading the app. Also, praise yourselves lucky you don't have a Volkswagen, because their app really sucks. I wish to be able to see ambient and internal temperature from the app in the future.
Good but now has a bug Been using it since Jan 15 and most of the time it works. Had a few issues refreshing sometimes. Problem now is I just bought a Samsung Gear 360 camera & downloaded the camera control software to S7. Now the i3 app keeps trying to connect to the Samsung Gear app... and fails. Presumably it saw a package name that makes it think I've got the Gear smart watch. Tried uninstalling cam app. Still same problem. Android now telliing me i3 app using a lot of battery and to shut it down:(
