    Nice interface, and the watch app looks alot nicer than EV Watch! I'll have to skip a couple coffees, then I can buy it.

    App looks great!

    Maybe use only 2 or 3 significant figures for the temperature. Mine reports inside temp as “31.27999999...”. I appreciate the accuracy, but 31 degrees would give me a good enough idea of how cold it is.

    @sroh
    Yes, we are planning an android version for near future.

    Can this also be adapted to Tizen, for us Samsung Gear users??

    No, we currently do not support any Stat feature in the Commands for Tesla app. They main purpose of the app currently is Apple Watch and Siri Shortcuts support. We're however, investigating possible options for adding Stats features to the app for future.

    @commands,
    Thanks. I am envious of the iPhone folks who are able to use Stats. Unfortunately, the developer has indicated he is not planning on porting over to android.

    At your price point, I expect many android users will give it a try.,

    @commands,
    Trying to add shortcut Siri command "Open Charge Port". Recorded voice. How do I save the shortcut as instructed? (this stuff is new to me).

    This is a nice looking app for a start. Would be great to clean up the icons a little bit (ie there are some extraneous lines in the lock/unlock icon). I am still using EV Watch until this app comes up with range remaining in the Infograph corner complication, which I find very useful from EV Watch.

    Definitely looks nicer than the Remote S app that I already have. Only purchased it to use the Siri Shortcuts... :-)
  • edited March 2019
    just bought the app, works great. Definitely would like the icons to look cleaner if possible (should look like they appear on an iphone).

    Thank you for checking out the app.
    For saving the shortcut, generally after recording your phrase, you have to tap the done button on the top right side of the screen and after that, you can use the command with Siri even the time your iPhone is locked. For example, you can say: "Hey Siri unlock the charge port".
    I hope it helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    Thank you for checking out the app and your suggestions. I will ask our designer to check the possible options for making the icons to look better.
    Please note that this is our first version and the feedback from you and other users will help us a lot in making the app better, thank you for your support.

    Thank you for your nice comments, I'm glad you liked the app.
    Please let us know if you have any suggestions or any feature you would like to see in the app.

    Thank you so much for your support. We will work on those and hopefully, we make them better in the next few releases. Currently, we're waiting for approval from Apple for our next release which includes the fix for decimal places for the temperature inside and outside of the vehicle and also includes more accurate feedbacks from Siri.

    @commands,
    Thanks for your reply. I got it to open the charge port. Later, I added the shortcut for "Flash the Lights". When I tried it, Siri said the car was waking up, and to try again in a few minutes. I waited some time, and then got a message that the connection failed. I went to the Tesla app and waited for the car to wake up, and then told Siri to flash the lights, and it worked. Does the car always have to be wakened before I can flash the lights?

    I don’t see the app on my Apple Watch. Any ideas? All software and apps up,to date.
  • edited March 2019
    One thing I hate about the native Tesla app is that when I want to turn on the HVAC, it has to sit there and wait for the car to wake up before I can actually turn it on. Why can't it let me turn it on right away and then wake up the car after the fact so I don''t have to stand there like a doofus. Most times, by the time it finally wakes up, I could have walked out to the car and turned it on myself.

    I want to tell it what to do first and then have it wake up the car after its accepted my instructions. Can the Commands app do that?
  • edited March 2019
    nice app.Siri shortcuts very useful. HVAC Temperature setting does not work for me. Any way to enable the app on the watch to be a complication so it can be on the watch home screen?

    Thank you for letting me know, I'm glad I could help.
    The main thing about the communication between any Tesla app and the car is any command should go through Tesla servers, this means there is no other way as of now to communicate directly between the app and your car. For making the communication over Tesla servers, because this happens over the internet connection of the car, if the car is asleep, it has to become awake first and then the command can be sent to car.
