What do our users say about Carista App?

“The app works as stated with loads of customisable features. I guess the best thing about the product is that the Carista dev team keeps pushing out new features with every update. Carista totally demonstrates value for money, especially with the paid annual subscription plan.”
“Excellent support, quick response, very nice features built into the application.”
“App managed to pick up some OBD errors that other apps didn't display, in my case for the A/C pressure sensor in my Audi A4 B8. Very cool, replaced the sensor and now everything is running well. Also enabled the ADS and green menu for the MMI, all worked without issue. “

it appears you're not using your own apps. I have complained about this several times The app has sent updated about six times since then and you have not addressed the issue I've asked. why are the fonts of the important information I need to see while I'm driving are so tiny I need to stop and pull the phone closer to my face just to read important information. there is all kinds of room on the screen but you insist on keeping the fonts ultra tiny.

Nice app, poor promo info. On the Carista website, it states you get a one month free trial. This is true, but only if you purchase an annual subscription (which you can cancel within 30 days). Since you can also request a refund with Google Play in the same time frame, it's not a true promo. That being said, love the functionality when used on my Audi B9 A4. Wish the app was a bit faster, but that could be the fault of the connection between the adapter and phone instead of the app.

The app works fine for scanning the modules of my 2017 VW Passat. I did the trial upgrade to the 'Pro' version so that I could make some changes, then cancelled my subscription. This app is definitely NOT worth $40 per year for the minimal amount of programming options given. A plus+ is that it worked with my cheap ELM327 bluetooth adapter. Since this is lacking extended coding options, the subscription service is overpriced and really a non-competitor to OBDeleven and other 'more powerful' tools. I see no reason to pay indefinitely for it's limited ability. If anything, the subscription service should be considered a R&D fee. It has potential, but I just don't see the value at this point.
