    All,

    First time Tesla Model S owner as of Friday this week and wondering what the best apps are for charging, statistics, etc. Also interested in all things that I can tweak to make the Tesla even better than it already is.

    Thank you,

    Ryan

    1. The Tesla App
    2. Remote S (assuming you're an iOS user, and optionally works great on an Apple Watch)
    If you care about monitoring MS statistics, do a few searches... a number of options in that regard as well. The "User Interface" subforum is where most of these sort of subjects are.

    Congrats a little early on that new MS!

    Here is my (overly extensive) list, in order of frequency of use:

    What are your favorites?

    1. Tesla Motors: Tesla Motors on the App Store

    2. Remote S for Tesla: Remote S for Tesla on the App Store

    3. KeyMote for Tesla Model S: KeyMote for Tesla Model S & Model X on the App Store

    6. App For Tesla (My Tesla Forum Clubs): App For Tesla on the App Store

    7. Supercharges for Tesla: Superchargers For Tesla on the App Store

    8. PlugShare: PlugShare on the App Store

    9. ChargePoint: ChargePoint: Electric Vehicle Charging On the Go on the App Store

    Thinking about these:

    Summon Tesla - from Apple Watch: Summon Tesla - from Apple Watch on the App Store

    ConnecTT for Tesla: ConnecTT For Tesla on the App Store

    Don't have this one (bad reviews and $50 is a bit much.)

    Supercharger Map Road Trip Planner for Tesla EV Owners: Supercharger Map Road Trip Planner for Tesla EV Owners on the App Store

    Probably not much need for this one:

    PowerTools For Tesla: PowerTools For Tesla on the App Store

    Not to toot my own horn (on a car forum, get it?), but someone asked a similar question on a different sub-forum recently and here was my answer:

    Remote S, Visible Tesla or Tesla app

    (The key point is that there's more to third-party software for your Tesla than apps that run on your smartphone.)

    Have fun at delivery and enjoy the new ride!

    Tesla app is a must. I keep it running in the background all the time. But I use RemoteS. A great app! I also have chargepoint and plugshare, though I have never needed to use them. I have the supercharger app. But the car tells me that too.
