    can't see any major new functionality, but it does look neater. Shows total odometer and vin. Can use Touch ID for keyless driving

    Also for Android. Looks nice, but I was hoping for more functionality.

    The app looks a lot better but adjusting the charging target level with the slider is still pretty hit and miss. I use a third party app to adjust this. I would also like to adjust the charge amps remotely but I know of no app that will do this.

    I'd suspect more functionality after the 8.1 update?

    It now appears to show total mileage and software version. Pretty sure it didn't do that before.

    Definitely an improvement but I was hoping for Summons / Forward and Reverse buttons to be on the widget (these being the ones I use daily).

    Agree with the charging target slider - for those of us with OCD it can be somewhat frustrating.

    The charging slider seems even more frustrating in the new app - there seems to be higher precision/resolution and so it's even harder for me to be sure I've exactly nailed 80% or 90%, etc. I can't understand why Elon allows this because by all accounts he's on the spectrum as well.

    Some kind of enumeration to accompany the slider would be an obvious inclusion in the interface.

    Yeah - but then again we don't even get that in the car...

    Definitely better and I love the widget.
    It's a shame there was not much new vehicle control added. I'd have liked the ability to close/open all windows, and ditto for sunroof.

    We live in hope that Ver 8.1 will make features available in the app I guess.

    My summon seems worse. I was standing inches from the side of the car and the new app has several times said "you are not in close enough proximity to the car to activate summon" or similar. Never happened before and key battery is nearly new.
