The Czech carmaker Skoda has improved its smartphone app experience by putting the functionality of two different ones into one.
Up until now, the Skoda Connect app provided online services such as remote locking or unlocking of the doors, or displaying the current position of the parked vehicle. Meanwhile the Skoda OneApp used SmartLink+ technology such as MirrorLink or Apple CarPlay to access real-time vehicle data, showing these on the car’s central display through a variety of screens, using playful elements. Its updated app combines those features.0
“By merging the apps, we are consolidating our software system with the aim of enabling our customers to use our digital services easily, conveniently and seamlessly across multiple devices,” explained Andre Wehner, the company’s Chief Digital Officer.
