Good but slow
I'm glad BMW has launched an app like this. It's a good start and I'm sure that they will make constant improvements. Lots of one-stars here......I had none of the startup issues that others had.
The "waiting for response from our secure server" delay is something that should be worked on. Vehicle updates are only useful if they are pretty much instant. Also, certain functions......like car location.....don't work or are disabled when the car is moving. The #1 use of these apps is tracking teenage drivers.....and this defeats the purpose! Don't overuse the issues of "privacy and safety" to explain taking away features that aren't serious concerns for either. My only point of competitive reference here is the Tesla app, which is better, simpler, and faster in nearly all cases. The BMW app is a very good and necessary start, but use Tesla as a goal for further improvement.....and to try some new ideas that they haven't thought of yet!

Everything is connected. I get a readout of all the car's systems in real time, from my phone, wherever I'm at. Monitors tire pressure, fluids, engine condition, etc. Can also lock, unlock, turn on/off lights, horn and cooling system before I even get to my car. Can schedule service right from the app, and know in advance when it's due. And there's new features everyday. Very cool.
Good app. A bit slow.
I see all of the negative reviews on this app and I don't really understand why such negativity...? I've been using for a week now and I haven't had any issues. The app works just fine, my only "complaint" if any would be the delay between pressing for a function and the amount of time it takes. But why are we all in a rush...? Let's slow it down, come down from the hamster wheel and chill vibes. 😎
