Love seeing SOC without opening the app!
Works as advertised. Automatically updates the charge percentage about every 5 to 20 min.

This app still doesn't work right
This app used to refresh battery status on its own at an interval you set so you could know what your charge level was within the last 5 minutes now you can only see your charge if you manually refresh and wait the 60+ seconds it takes to update! LAME!

Too many notifications
How do you get the notifications to stop!? Seriously, the app should not cause harm. UPDATE: I emailed the developer and he manually fixed the non-stop updates using my Carwings username. He was responsive and helpful. If this bug is fixed, I'd give this app another try.

Has potential, get it now so you don
This is another user written iOS app. This app is pretty basic but has some nice features. It supports the Leaf, Volt and Plug in Prius. There are 2 main screens, you swipe to go between them. The main screen shows a speedometer style meter that has a needle pointing to battery % and a readout that shows range in miles or km. Two button on the bottom control climate control and charge control. Pressing either brings up a confirmation screen to either toggle the state or “nevermind.” I’m not sure of the true value of the second screen. It shows 3 boxes labeled Energy usage since dd/mm/yy, energy cost (kwh) and total expense ($). I think ’m paying 13 cents/kwh so I entered that using the up and down buttons. The energy usage value has up and down buttons, but I think is read from the car as well. The total expense is the product of the first 2. Unfortunately there is no indication of how far you traveled on, so knowing your cost is fairly meaningless. And if you use several different chargers there is no way to know how much of that cost you actually spent. But the data is there if you want it. Options settings allow you to turn notifications on and off, allow demand response to notifications from your power company due to high demand, turn on auto update (request update every time the app is launched) and toggle between US and metric measurements. My favorite feature of this app is that it badges the icons with the SOC%. You do not need to open the app to see your charge level. And I expect a future release to allow that to show miles remaining as an option. (Badging is the number in a red circle on top of the icon, the same way mail shows how many unread emails you have, and Facebook shows how many notifications you have). 3 Stars (would be 2 without the badging)

Can't turn off updates.
I wasn't crazy about this app when I got it, but held on to it just it case it got better. I had set it up to update my status every hour and somehow I got it to stop. I accessed the app the other day and the updates started up again. Now there is no way to stop them. Removing the app does not work and changing the notifications hasn't stopped them either.
