    Notified today (April 20) that they are shutting down the App. No estimate as to when. Sooo disappointed! Way to go GM! Thanks! We make large investments in our vehicles and as you said "after careful consideration" we, your customers, made large investments with you. Now you walk away? No commitment.

    I was shocked when I bought my truck to see that Windows Phone was supported. I am happy that it works but the app is a terrible design. Clunky and slow. I bet this is either a really bad port through some middleware or its a (bad) web app. Can't complain too much. Just happy it works.

    I like that I can view data about my Volt but am upset that the app never remembers me and I have to sign in every time. Also, what happened to the feature to select to start charging my car if I have it set on delayed charge and want to charge immediately?

    Does not work with older vehicles. Would be nice to use services I am forced to pay for.

    Was a great app until the upgrade now I just get the logo and then nothing. Not happy.

    The fact that GM/OnStar is even thinking about Windows Phone users is worthy of applause in and of itself. Some auto manufacturers have Infotainment systems in their vehicles built by Microsoft with no companion app for Windows Phone. A few suggestions to improve the user experience, if they are at all possible: - Ability to pin remote features to your start screen for faster access. - Push notifications for unlocked doors, popped trunk, engine cranked, remote start timeout warning. - Enter/exit Valet Mode. - Activate/Deactivate interior and exterior lighting when using remote start or lock/unlock. - Cortana support for voice commands. - Some sort of enhanced Bluetooth capability. Like the ability to unlock your doors or pop your trunk if MyLink detects your device's Bluetooth is on and in proximity.

    Since the update, diagnostic information does not work. It was a great app before the update. Please FIX ASAP!!!

    Worked the day I downloaded it and hasn't worked since. Just has the OnStar logo forever and will never open. What a waste.

    Updated app is much more elegant. The service is still slow. But I don't think that is an app issue necessarily.
