Crash party, no gear support, buggy Constantly crashing when rebooting phone at first load (android 6.0), constantly waiting for connection to gear app even though it ONLY works with gear S1 (no longer sold) and not with my Gear S2. Randomly logs out. When you log back in sometimes it fails and you have to try again in a few hours. At login it sometimes asks for pin twice. Animation of car pre-conditioning gets messed up 2nd time you start your car if app is not rebooted. There's no option to unlock doors, just lock. Car info doesn't update.
BARELY WORKS This App is great if you want to know if your doors are locked.. or what percentage your car is charged. But if you want to precondition your car as I was told it's best to do. It fails completely!! It says that remote precondition in is disabled for my car and to visit the website every singe time. Even after visiting the BMW site the app still fails to work.
Waiting for connection to gear app FOREVER. I don't even have a smart watch. It won't stop trying to connect. Even if I force close the app. Crashes all day and if I force stop it, it just starts up again on its own. Also I wish it would alert me when the car is fully charged. Other EV car apps do that. It doesn't record my electric trips (keeps saying my max distance is 12 miles).
Missing some useful features. This app is adds value to your BMW i. The charging status updates, trip statistics, and driving feedback are great. But it doesn't tell you charging rate. It doesn't tell you battery temperature. And it has spotty performance. Sometimes it will stop updating from the car. Sometimes it looks like it's updating from the car but it's feeding you bad information. And it doesn't remember longest trips on electric. This is frustrating.
This app is a great idea, but the execution sucks. If I close the app before the conditioning gives me a success message, I have no way to tell if it was successful. It fails half of the time. The real dealbreaker is the permanent notification that seems to be displaying since I connected my Galaxy Gear S2 to it. The notification says "waiting for connection to Gear app..." but there is no way for me to connect. No app in the Gear store. I may actually have to take the watch back because of this, because I can't have a notification on my phone that won't close... it would drive me crazy. If you're not going to support Tizen/Gear anymore, at least let the Android app know!
Constantly Crashes App works when it's not crashing. But it crashes multiple times a day and has for 6 months. Quite annoying to see the message on my phone more often than all other messages combined (got it twice while typing this). I am always told like any other failing app to just uninstall and reinstall but it doesn't actually fix anything. In my (and apparently many others) opinion this app is a good idea but poorly maintained.
