Chargepoint Announces New Mobile App
Chargepoint, the largest online global charging network, which connects drivers of electric vehicles to charging stations throughout 14 countries, has announced its latest mobile application for all iOS and Android smart phones. The app will include a variety of social network options.
The mobile app will continue providing users the ability to locate and check charging station availability and make reservations. It will also still provide detailed station information, which includes pricing and the ability to view your home charging station and its status.
Being added in this revision is the social network access, which will allow drivers to directly access their Facebook and Twitter accounts, make check-ins, and comment on Facebook from the more than 10,000 charging spots in the United States.
Additional ChargePoint features include:
- Quick-loading maps that look sharp and detailed. Drivers can switch between map view and list view for simple navigation.
- The ability to add, remove, and recall your favorite places to charge.
- The ability to create a new ChargePoint account directly from your phone.
- New menus have been reorganized to provide quick access to your favorite functions.
“The ChargePoint mobile app provides an easy way to access the world’s largest EV charging network, with features to locate stations near a specified address, get turn-by-turn directions, and even start and stop a charging session directly from a smart phone.”
