Re: uConnect Apps?

I just received an update to the uConnect app on my Android phone. They have removed the uConnect app functionality on the application that would have handled the data transfer between the phone and the radio.

I don't know that HOWEVER, I do know that this will be across every Chrysler Jeep Dodge and even some FIAT in the near future. I would expect that some other APPs will come accross simply because of the volume of units.

Its a really bad idea to flash firmware on a poor network connection. The head unit could be bricked...yikes.

Thanks. From what I have read there is an available SDK that any developer can use to write the app, but then uconnect has to approve it before being made available. Is this correct?

? Not an engineer specialized in application integration, user interface design, etc.?

Of course 'entry level considered' probably says a lot.

Re: uConnect Apps?

Straight from the horses mouth in the Google play store (android) :

"What's New
Version 1.4.4
Removes Non Functioning Via Mobile Button
We are taking Uconnect Access via Mobile for one last test drive before it is released. Our goal is to make sure it is intuitive and easy for you to use. We appreciate your patience, please stay tuned.
Via Mobile availability will be announced to registered users and the previously announced Apps (Pandora, iHeart Radio, Slacker, and Aha) will automatically be updated within the Uconnect Access App and on the vehicle touchscreen.

Thank you. I guess you answered our question!

This may seem a dumb question, but the only app I see right now on my apps is Yelp. Are there others out there now? I have not even used yelp yet because I find it too hard and takes too long to access.
Other than the remote start and lock app, am I missing other apps?

Everyone is still waiting for UConnect to release the apps to us. The release date has been pushed back and they are now overdue.
