    I see a lot of apps for Apple? Where is the Android love?

    Can we get a list of what's out there for Android?

    I'd appreciate your feedback, thanks!

    Put it this way, I switched to apple once I got my car. By far the better apps for the Tesla are on apple and it seems like even tesla puts their android app on the backburner sometimes.

    I hear ya, even though... I would never switch back to Apple. Even if that means I have to live with the Tesla app only.

    I was in that some boat as you. Until I saw the advantages of Allen Wongs App remote S. And he updates it regularly, and is a very responsive member of these forums. But the android app will work. But I think you will definitely feel like its missing a lot for just dropping 100k on a car.

    My first project when I get my tesla in June will be to work on an android app. I've seen reviews of the tesla android version, don't know why it's so bad.

    Not so much that its bad, but more that it really lacks for what it should be. Even the Official iPhone app lacks much. For example, I dont know why I cant open my sunroof from the Tesla app (only vent) yet with Remote S I can open, close, 50% and so on. theres a lot more Usability that I think we can get from our apps as I know its possible since its just software.

    I'm taking some courses soon on Android Wear Development, primarily to create a Tesla App. I know Rog on here already made one by hacking together WatchMaker, Tasker, and RESTask. His is pretty cool! But anyways, trying to make a one-step install for Android users.
