What's New in Version 2.2
Minor fixes and improvements
WOW! [Edited - Flaw in App] Features Request!!!
**Edited** While everything stated below remains true, this morning, I discovered that the app doesn't notify devices on iOS 8 of Model S softwares updates. I have notifications enabled for the app (as well as updates inside the app) on both my iPhone 6 Plus and iPad Air 2 (iOS 8.1.2), yet only my old iPhone 5S on 7.1.2 received the notification that my car had an updated pending.******* This app is incredible. Two thumbs up for the awesome functionally 👍👍
Two things though -
1. Please make use of iOS 8's Touch ID API to allow newer iPhone owners to start their car using the secure fingerprint sensor (without entering their passwords) 👉📲✅
2. Please implement an iOS 7/8-inspired flat design and support RHD (iPhone 6 / 6 Plus 3x assets)
Looking forward to future updates ---
Does what it's supposed to do well
App works as expected. Just wish you would have more of the functions that's in the car on the app but I imagine in time that will happen also as a previous reviewer has stated it needs touch ID just for security.
Also would be nice to be able to schedule pre-warming or cooling on a daily hourly basis but the car doesn't have that yet either so it's not a knock.
Useful app, needs update
This is a nice app that really adds to owning a Model S. Two quick requests:
1) would be great to be able to start a software update from the phone. Would save having to run out to the garage just to start the update.
2) app really needs an iPhone 6 update. Was surprised it wasn't done with the Jan 2015 update.
