WattCat - Third party InControl app for Android

Hi all!

I've been working on a third party InControl for Android for a little while now It's still early days but after having reversed the entire InControl Remote API along with the official mobile app I realized that I could do better. There is a Python library for said API available here.

Now, back to the app. It's still rather early in development and is nowhere near finished but it's a fun little project and I'm quite satisfied with what I've got so far. Some of you might be testing it already as I've discussed it on the UK forums for quite some time.

Some features so far include:

- More data presented compared to the official app including battery health
- Experimental implementation of a Max SoC system. Until the I-Pace starts supporting the official Max SoC API it will have to suffice.
- Snappy and good looking user interface
- Vehicle alert log
- Faster access to useful features such as preconditioning, departure timers, etc.
- 100% free and no ads. This is a hobby project through and through!

Screenshots are attached.

In order to participate in the alpha test I will have to add your google associated email address to the list of testers. After which you can opt-in to the test here.

Feedback, suggestions and criticism is very welcome

Cheers all!

Wow, WattCat! Nice looking app! I can't imagine how much work went into the development but great so far. Do I need a Gmail account to join the test group? If so, it's worth opening a google account.

Thanks! You don't need a Gmail account but you need to have some sort of email address associated with Google Play. If you have an Android device and you have access to Google Play then you should be good to go. Just PM me the associated email address and I'll add it to the Google Play testing list.

Cheers!

I can give an unconditional thumbs up to the WattCat app. It is much more stable and loads/updates way faster than the official (Not)In-Control JLR app. It's still a work in progress but @ardevd has done a phenomenal job with it and addresses any bug reports/issues super quickly. I am shocked he is doing this for free

Good morning, ardevd. I selected the link and received an error message from Google Play stating that the URL is not on the server. Any ideas? Thanks.

Hi,


I'm a former web applications developer so I know how much work goes into stuff like this. Thanks for your efforts.

The link to the app posted above did not work for me either. I used Google on phone to get to the UK forum and clicked the link there.
