I recently leased a Chevrolet Bolt EUV; one of the nice things about it is that I can check the status of the battery, etc., remotely. As of September, they're dropping that access from the website; it will only be available via an app. That app is particularly obnoxious; about every 3rd or 4th time I try to use it, it just hangs on startup. So far, the only fix I've found is to delete the app and reinstall it.
In addition, to be prepared for any trip beyond the base range of the car, I've had to add 7(!) apps to my phone - MyChevrolet to talk to the car, ABetterRoutePlanner (ABRP) to plan the route including charging stops, PlugShare to check to make sure that the charging stops ABRP picked actually exist and are working, plus Blink, ChargePoint, Electrify America and EVgo so that I can actually use the chargers. Apparently very few of the chargers are set up to allow you to swipe a credit card; they all want you to use their app instead.
I really enjoy driving the car, but I'm less than thrilled with having to depend on a smartphone to be able to do much beyond local trips. At least the car has wireless charging capability that works with my phone, and Android Auto to let me mirror the phone display on the car's much larger screen.

Straw Poll

When building an application, when is the most important time to consider the User Experience?
They are the ones we write code for, right?
