Mobile app to crowdsource Supercharger usage/queues?

    So I've been toying with the idea for a very simple mobile-friendly app which would let Tesla drivers crowdsource queues @ SC...And this is all the app would do: based on geo-location, show the supercharger, number of stalls and users would fill out how many are taken, how many cars are waiting.

    It would be sort of similar to what Waze for Tesla does, but packaged in a clean, single-ish purpose mobile app (built in such a way that it would also display cleanly in the on-board browser.)

    I've poked around and looked at the other 3rd party apps and none seem to be doing that, so:

    1) Did I miss an existing app?
    2) Do you think this is needed? (I am hoping it is sort of a leading question...)
    3) Is there anyone interested in this and who could help with the coding aspect? I am a product/UI guy and can help with that part but we would need someone with the required coding skills.

    Thoughts?

    ps: And yes, this really should be part of the official app, but I digress.
