      Very interesting, I've heard that 3rd party apps are better in most respects than the native Tesla app. I'm hoping to see more discussion on which app is better as the time arrives for the Model 3.

      It looks like an awesome app, I just wish Tesla did it instead of a 3rd party.

        We'll be adding Windows support at some point.

          @teslaliving - for us yet to have possession of a Tesla, is there any functionality in the app to be able to see what others are tracking, or do you need an active vehicle to have any app access?

          Teslab shows you your trips and those of others. It's built for current owners and requires a Tesla login (that connects to your car) to get started. Below are a few pics from the app. It's pretty rich in functionality.

          Hi everyone, some big reductions are coming on the cell phone power use. We made a big change over on the backend last week and have been doing some cleanup after that. The data quality will be much improved, we'll use less power and we'll be able to add more cool features.

          We've also updated the in-car dash (available at http://teslab.happyfuncorp.com/dash after you've installed the app on your phone). Some images are below.

          New additions:
          • Weather radar
          • Wind direction & speed
          • Fleet size
          • The next feature panels beyond Fleet Stats with Waze traffic reports via Teslawaze
          We are live in the Google Play store and working through the usual bureaucracy with Apple to get in the Apple App store.

          We are in the process of integrating the model 3 into TesLab. Do prospective drivers have ideas for what they may want in the app while they wait for their car to arrive.

          Thanks.

            This link, to another thread, provides some idea of what we wanted Tesla's app to contain.

            maybe the app as it stands does this, but didn't see it listed ... I think it'd be interesting to keep a running log of kWs per charge - if home vs L2, DCFC, SC, etc are able to be identified per charge that would be great to look at where charging happened (not sure beyond the actual charge rate/amps if the car's computer recognizes the charge type).
            I anticipate most all of my charging would be done at home, and I have a flat rate per kW no matter season or time of day, so would be easy to say at the end of the year how much of my power bill was for the car vs everything else if I knew how much went into the battery from home.
