ChargePoint introduced on Monday its newest electric vehicle charging station mobile application for iPhone and Android smart phones.
The EV charger company said that with a new user experience and redesigned look, the ChargePoint EV charging station app now features all EV charging stations installed in the United States, not just those on the ChargePoint network.
Additionally, EV drivers can now easily identify which stations have pricing and exactly how far they are from their location.
The updated ChargePoint EV charging station app is available for free and is said to provide EV drivers direct access to their social network accounts including Facebook and Twitter.
“ChargePoint is the world’s largest electric vehicle global charging network,” said Pat Romano, president and CEO of ChargePoint. “One feature EV drivers have requested is the ability to navigate, access and charge at any electric vehicle charging station, not just those on the ChargePoint network. With more than ten thousand EV charging spots on the ChargePoint network and thousands more out of the network this is the easiest way to find any EV charging station anywhere in North America.”
ChargePoint says it provides the industry’s first and only EV charging station mobile app that give drivers real-time charging station status, detailed station information including pricing and the ability to view your home charging station. EV drivers can make EV charging station reservations, payments and find location information through this app.
