iOS Apps for Tesla Cars

Sep 2, 2017

As one of the hottest cars that are available today, Tesla vehicles have gained a significant amount of popularity over the recent years for its developments in sustainable and autonomous technology. As an all-electric car that boasts acceleration that is faster than most supercars, Tesla is quickly becoming a must-have tech vehicle for many, especially with the release of the Model 3 which will be significantly cheaper than the previous models, the Model S and the Model X. With increasing accessibility in terms of price, many people will now be able to afford a Tesla and this article discusses some of the apps that are compatible to control various aspects of the car.

Tesla Motors

One of the most compelling aspects of a Tesla car is that beyond being a vehicle, it is a piece of technology that pushes the limits of the traditional notions of a car. For example, the vehicle can operate autonomously on most roads and has access to the internet so that apps are able to connect to it. With the Tesla Motors app, users are able to get access to various aspects of the car from the charging status to different functions. To mimic traditional keys, the app can lock, unlock, and beep the horn. Beyond these basic functions, it can also turn the car on or off so that they heat or air conditioner can start even before a user is in the vehicle. As an all-electric car, no emissions are released so this feature can even be done when a car is closed in a garage. The best feature of the app, however, leverages the autonomy of the vehicle as it can be summoned right from the app. With this function, the car can be automatically called to exit a parking spot or garage without ever having to step into the vehicle, making it perfect for tight spaces. As an increasing number of features and updates are made to the car, the Tesla Motors app developed by the company is one of the best ones that an owner can have.

Remote S for Tesla

Beyond the app developed by Tesla, third-party developers have also been able to contribute to the mobile offerings of the vehicle. Remote S is an app that is designed for the highest degree of accessibility such as integrations to the phone as well as smart watches. Offering even more features than the app developed by Tesla, Remote S can help with a range of tasks such as managing charging patterns and security. For example, instead of overcharging the battery which can be damaging to the lifespan, the app will allow users to set an alarm which will notify them when the car is fully charged or at a particular percentage. Furthermore, the car can be started in a matter of seconds with a simple touch as a fingerprint is all that is required to start the engine through the Touch ID option. Advanced statistics can be retrieved from the app such as ranges, estimated range remaining, schedules, and even location tracking. With all of these tools available, Remote S for Tesla is one of the best apps to increase the number of functions that are possible right from the phone.

A big issue pertaining to electric vehicles is the range that is possible with such a car. While gasoline cars can be filled in minutes at nearly every corner, electric vehicles are still early in their development stage, charging stations are not as common, and the process of charging can take several hours to fully charge the battery. With these issues in mind, PlugShare is a must-have app which is able to significantly reduce many of these barriers. For example, the app shows where each electric charging station is so that drivers know exactly where they are able to charge their cars. With an increasing number of chargers being added to various routes each day, the app is automatically updated to reflect these changes. Furthermore, PlugShare can assist in the route-planning process, especially if the particular trip is far. By being able to identify where there are charging stations, users can drive accordingly and plan their rests so that the car is able to charge in the meantime. A highly applicable aspect of the app is that it can also distinguish between regular charging ports and super chargers which significantly reduces the amount of time required to charge a Tesla vehicle. In doing so, users have access to the chargers that are much quicker if they are in a rush, making it extremely helpful for all electric vehicle owners.

KeyMote – Remote for Tesla Model S & Model X

To customize the experience of owning a Tesla vehicle, KeyMote is an app which lets users access the panel of the car right from there phone. Beyond the basic functions such as turning the car on or off, accessing the lights, or using GPS tracking, the app reflects different settings that are found on the car’s screen on the phone so that users can access a host of other features to include roof control and live data. By being able to control the car right from the phone, users do not need to be in the vehicle to control different functions. Although the title implies that the app is only designed for the Model S and Model X, the release of the Model 3 is likely to spur an update for the new models. Furthermore, as more updates are added to the car, it is likely that the app will also increase in the functions that it can perform, making it a great complimentary tool for Tesla owners.
