So the myAudi app on my iPhone has been down for maintenance all day. Does anyone have details on when it will be back online. I get the following pic below.
We'll get a new background picture and option to pay for a chance to change it to something more personal ... just trolling but I do not expect much.if they add in an update where you just plug into EA chargers and it just work, like on Earth Day, that would be cool. Have the payment system built into the App, once we plug in, the system communicates, it gets the info and charging starts. I’m curious to see what improvements we get with this major downtime.
One pro to the way it is now is that when I go on a trip with my parents in their EV, I can offer to "pay" and activate the charger. The credits aren't tied to one car.if they add in an update where you just plug into EA chargers and it just work, like on Earth Day, that would be cool.

Eventually, Audi will be forced to acquire the talent and build out whatever processes and/or infrastructure are necessary to act like a proper software/hardware integration vendor. Tesla has the software—and I can’t help but longingly look at that instantaneous nav screen and charger network in the road trip videos, until they pull back and remind me of that hideous made-by-IKEA interior—and they may be willing to keep cranking out hardware that is only 80%-baked. It’s not clear to me that Tesla cares about fit and finish. But tomorrow’s EV buyers/lessees/subscribers are growing up in a much slicker software world than I did, where vertical integration, or something that performs almost as well, is demanded. Many will never have lived in an Audi or Benz. They’ll find their elegance instead in that IKEA simplicity. Like another poster over at AudiWorld, they’ll want more and better screens, truly sustainable interiors, not Alcantara and Nappa leather. They just won’t care that panels on an Audi might be aligned to within a tissue depth. They are being weaned off ICE by Tesla. And Tesla has the market mindshare. For many, the vertically integrated software stack and charging network will be all they care about.It is not just backup that is needed, it is a pre-staging environment where they can pre-build the new instance, and then switch it over overnight
