Blocked Contacts


This app would be great but it randomly blocks random contacts on my iPhone. This is very bad for business and friends and family when they have to email you to say they cannot call or text you. I say this after much troubleshooting. I have been to the Apple store twice and deleted and reinstalled apps individually. Searched the internet for solutions. Finally after test my theory three times it is proven that when this app is installed and used on iPhone it randomly blocks some contacts. And to those with the question .... NO. I DID NOT ALLOW IT TO ACCESS MY CONTACTS. Please let me know when this critical bug is worked out. Otherwise. Useless.

I find it rather interesting that the app developer has responded to most other reviews. However, not even an acknowledgement of my review. Are you aware of this problem? Working on this problem?

Clearly the developer did not read my review. The problem is not accessing my contacts. The problem is that the BMW app blocks my contacts randomly. I have confirmed this by deleting the app and no problems since. Feel free to address this problem but do not assume this I have an issue accessing my contacts.

Missing Remote Start

Meritricious MyCroft

Recently purchased a 2018 M550i with the remote park feature and I couldn't be more disappointed with this app. The remote park feature let's me start the car and move it back and forward while outside the car. Yet, I can't start the car remotely with the app. It does not make sense that I can remotely lock, unlock, flash the lights, honk the horn, or take a 3d view with the app, but can't do the basic thing of starting the car through the app. I'm even willing to purchase a factory approved upgrade kit to enable the remote start. This is extremely frustrating given that so many less expensive vehicles from other companies have the remote start feature. Moreover, apps like the one for Hyundai cars allow you to not only remotely start the vehicle, but remotely set the departure temperature while this one only allows you to start it at the temperature set inside the car before it was turned off. If the managers and developers at bmw don't care enough to make their expensive vehicles as advanced as their less expensive counterparts, then they will guarantee their customers will be looking at companies like Tesla to make their next auto purchase.

Pretty Useful App


I like the app and the features that it has offer however it would be nice if I could auto start my 2017 X5 when needed. One of the main bugs that need to be fixed and is so annoying to the point I want to delete the app from my phone is every time I pick up my phone to do anything and while in the middle of sending a text etc the app pops up and interrupts everything and o have to start over . So my question to the developer is what is it that I need to do to keep his from happening before I delete this app altogether ? After I continue to explore the features I will come back and do another review so right now this app gets a 3

Thanks for the update however I have uninstalled the app and put it back on my phone and restarted my phone several times but it sill does the same
