    Default It's official VoltDC sucks

    My VoltDC app on my Motorola RAZR stopped updating about 10 days ago. It keeps asking me to log on, I do, then it asks to select my car, I do it then circles back to the log on screen.

    I have deleted the app and reinstalled at least 4 times and no joy. I just deleted it for good.

    GM needs to fire their IT team and hire a bunch of high school kids to do their app/software development.

    I have it working on iOS and it's been working like a charm.

    Generally connects fine for me, however I am missing several achievements and the app shows many days where I have not met my goals but also shows 100% EV for the day.

    This app works, but is pretty useless. I got better things to do.

    The missing achievements are pretty retarded. Apparently, Voltstats.net does way better jobs even though it has fewer badges.

    CONCUR, there is very little useful info (when it's working) I won't miss it.

    Works fine for me on my iPad. It's also the best app out there for general info. Myvolt.com never recovered from the update. I use VoltDC exclusively now.
