iOS "Hello #" app for the smart #1 & 3

  • Today I've got some exiting news about a 3rd party #1 and #3 app for you. In the recent days I've got in contact with Christian Gonzalvez. He's a smart #1 owner and has got a RHD one, as well as a LHD version. He and his partner are developers with a lot of experience on iOS apps. As they were frustrated with the current state of the official app, they decided to create one themself.


    Right now it's still in its early alpha stage, but they already started sharing it with me. So I'm already playing with it myself:



    Right now they are in the process of figuring out, what they can do with the API. For example they found you can select which seats should pre heat over the API. You can also only select which SoC the smart should be charged to. In the official app you can no longer make any settings when the charge started. That's a bug of the official app and is fixed in the 3rd party app. They also found way more informations about the #1 in the API than what the official app is showing.


    It's a passion project by Christian Gonzalvez and Clément Gonzalvez. They are also thinking about making the code for the app available on Github, but haven't decided on that yet. Right now they are looking for people who would like to test the app as well. They are also interested in people with a #3, as they haven't got one yet. ( Emiel ) If you've got a #1 or a #3 and would like to support the project, feel free to comment here and send me an email to the address found in my imprint. I'll than forward your email address to Christian and he'll invite you to the project via Testflight.


    Also important to note:

    Of course you need to register in the app with your smart account. Your account informations are encrypted and stored on your iPhone only.

  • I’m definitely interested, but it’s way to early for me. Tomorrow ill order the bleu one with black interior. That one isn’t available so i guess i have to wait 10 weeks.

  • Hello, I would be interested in trying the application. Greetings.

  • Ohh wow. That's quite a lot of testers already. I've just forward your email addresses to Christian Gonzalvez and Clément Gonzalvez. I've said it before and I'm going to say it again: The app is still in it's early phase, feel free to post about your thoughts of the app here. :)

    I’ve successfully downloaded the app and have logged in.


    First impressions:

    - very quick to load which I appreciate!

    - I much prefer the way this app shows the percentage and miles remaining rather than the weird progress bar that the official app has.


    So far so good, will definitely look out for updates and use more frequently!

  • The app is simple but does exactly what it should. It has fast loading times, and the climate control offers more than the original app. It would be great to have a timer function for the air conditioning through the app, which is still missing in the original app. I'll report it through TestFlight. Overall, it already makes a good first impression. Now, Smart just needs to release the update to keep the online services active.

  • Hey everyone, big thanks for all the love for Hello #! We're just getting started with this early alpha version, and there's a bunch of cool stuff coming in the next ones. We're totally open to your thoughts and suggestions, so feel free to shoot them our way! Exciting times ahead! 😄🚀

  • I would also like to try this app. I’m also interested in some API documentation to make some smart home integration myself

    that was my first intention, an add-on for Home Assistant. but all my work on discovering the API convinced us that a new App would be the best use of them.


    I hope to get back to the home assistant as soon as Clement doesn't need my help on discovering the API.


    I got the missing bits I needed on the API thanks to this project from Marco who has released a widget for iPhone through scriptable: https://github.com/marco79cgn/…e-widgets/tree/main/smart


    That's how I started. There's also work done in EVCC but I don't know it.


    What is your idea? we could start a dedicated thread on API Smart Home Integration

  • All the smarthome integrations somehow build on the initial work by marco79cgn. He was at first hesitant* to publish the signature algorithm, but then the IObroker inegration was published and all other projects (Marco's Widget and EVCC) used the signature algorithm published there. Now it's "only" a matter of finding out what the endpoints do... :)


    * in Germany there's an Anti-Hacking Law

  • Hi, I'm super interested in trying the app, how can I do it? and I am interested in an integration for Home assistant. Grazie from italy

  • Please bring this to Android!

  • First Impression is absolute positiv: Universal App, that means: Built for iPad as well. I Never understand why Apps are built only for iPhone resolution. Thanx so much to the developers and Moritz for forwarding TestFlight adress.

    I will have much time for testing and hope that the online Services issue will fixed soon in China.

  • Could I get access to the testflight please?

  • Could I get access to the testflight please?

    Please share your email in private to Moritz


    For the moment it’s not an open for all link to join because we would like the users to start discussing it. Here preferably. But individual feedback in test flight are also welcome.


    At first we confirmed the API worked for everyone. Now it’s time to experiment on commands we know the API is not reliably using: changing the charge limit almost never works for a few days and then works each time the next 24 hours.


    You can try to unlock the car. And lock it.


    Pre conditioning seems reliable to me. How is it for you?


    A user gave us an idea: when pre conditioning is started, make the icon pulse to show we are waiting on the car to show it started. Them it would start turning when the car actually showed it stated


    The warning on pre conditioning while under 20% of battery was also an idea we received in Test flight.


    App v0.1 (17) does not display charge speed - ac/dc? Where could it be found?

    struppi999. Is it still not showing?

  • We took a 3-day break with family. But in the end its just many opportunities to test the app in real life 😅


    All is working very well so far today. Even setting the charging limit


    You can see a 3 phase charging with my car and a CCS charging with my mother’s


    And how the sun is nice in south of France today. Best seats in the smart #1 are in the back!

  • Hi - please could you add me to your group of Hello# testers? I am in the uk with a #1 Brabus and on iOS. Thanks!

  • chriscatfr tu for your absolutely great work - really appreciate every version; I will check it up this eve and give you feedback on this

  • The application is very good, I am trying it and I like it much more than the original, it tells you almost in real time the charging power, the remaining time, the 12v battery voltage, if they put the navigator with its charging stations and the function to add the routes. from the mobile phone it would be perfect to continue improving it if it came with more improvements I would buy it if it didn't have a high price greetings

  • Hello, good luck. For some problem, the application does not update at the real time. Greetings.

    Hello, good if the navigator could be introduced like the original with the function of planning the route on the mobile and being able to send it to the car it would be the best and also add the check of the car, tire pressures, etc. great work, keep it up, greetings

  • Hallo Moritz, bin gerade wie anscheinend einige andere auch auf die Augenscheinlich tolle #1 App aufmerksam geworden.

    Besteht die Möglichkeit als Beta Tester mitzumachen?

  • Willkommen im Forum. Ich geb's an die Entwickler weiter. Bitte behaltet im Hinterkopf, dass sie kein deutsch sprechen. Darum ist das Thema aktuell auch nur auf Englisch verfügbar.


    -- --


    In another German smart #1 forum people now caught wind of the development of this app. This post is to tell them, that the developers of the app are from France and that's why the topic is only available in English until the app is publicly available.

  • Hi Moritz,

    thanks a lot for addiction to this forum and of course big shout out to the developers of this app.

    Is it possible to be added to the testing as well?

    Thanks in advance!

  • Also it only bother me for using the official Hello Smart app, because once again I have to enter my password and password managers are not recognising the app.


    It works for me with the Microsoft Authenticator.

  • Hallo Moritz,

    ich werde das mit der Sprache berücksichtigen. Zum Übersetzen verwende ich dann die deppl-App.

    Gruß

    :)

    Hello Moritz,

    I will take that into account with the language. I will then use the deppl app to translate.

    Greetings

  • Good evening from Spain.

    Im a beta tester and developer of iOS Apple.

    I would be interested in trying this application.

    Thank you in advance

  • Hello Moritz Leicht and chriscatfr,

    Thank you very much for this great app.

    I haven't been able to test all the functions yet, but the pre-climatization has already worked great.

    I'll have more opportunities to try out other functions over the next few days.

    And after reading what could be possible, I'm already looking forward to a new version of your app.

    So "thumbs up" for the great work and once again a big thank you for the work so far.

    Greetings Dirk

    Thank you for your interest. Mortiz sends us the email of people asking to join test flight.

    It’s not an open-for-all link test because we need feedback. For this first phase, in English. We are looking for people capable of expressing themselves and telling us what is going well and what’s not.


    Translation to German, French, Spanish… will come in the last phase to avoid translating things that won’t stay


    Anyone asking in English will be added. The test is still open for new testers

  • Hi chriscatfr, Moritz Leicht


    I would appreciate to join the party.

    You should have gotten an invitation mail already.

  • Hi chriscatfr, Moritz Leicht,


    Hello everyone, I would also like to help with testing. I somehow overlooked the fact that the request has to be in English. Does the Apple ID have to be the same as the email address in the forum? Because it is not!

    Thanks! it should be fine if the email address is different. A link from Apple Test Flight will arrive by email and that's when you click on it that your Apple account matters.

    if but we haven't tested yet. Your feedback will be useful on that point :)

    Thanks in advance.

  • chriscatfr

    Sure, that‘s even more than I expected with all these flexible options. Looking forward to the next release. Thanks!

    it should be today

    Is it possible to display the amount charged in kw/h after the charging process is complete?


    Thanks

    I don’t think it’s possible with the data we get from the API alone


    But next build will share with you all the API answer so you can also contribute to looking at what can be useful.

  • Hello guys, ( clementgzl  chriscatfr) 🙋🏻‍♂️


    I've been driving my Brabus No. 1 since May last year and heard about the great opportunity to test your app. I've been using TestFlight for years and would like to help with my feedback.


    It would be great to hear from you.

    Kind regards from Guetersloh,

    Hello Philla. Thank you for your help. Moritz will add you soon.


    I am curious how the Sun Roof value is showing in the JSON for #3. We default on "Closed" if the value is missing or wrong.


    Can someone look in the "stats for nerds" and send us one after deleting your GPS Location and VIN ?

    you will find our email address in the App Details in Test Flight.


    Let us know if you see or think of some other differences

  • Hallo Moritz

    Mich interessiert das Thema sehr viel.

    Kannst du mitte mich auch in der Testkreis mitnehmen?

    Ich fahre #1 Pulse seit einem Monat.


    Vielen Dank

  • Hello Moritz,

    I would like to take part in the beta test. I drive a #1 Premium since around 9 months now. The official app from Smart has more of a beta status for me even after this long time. That's why I would be happy to try out this app.

    Thanks for your engagement.

  • Filled the washer fluid. Value in app is still 1. Thus, I expect that either 0/1 (empty or not) is available. Or worst case const value 1

    Maybe I can report in a few weeks what happens with empty washer fluid.

  • Thank you so much! :) We have been looking at implementing the steering wheel heating as an option in the preconditioning screen, but unfortunately we don't have the information on how to process it with the API as this isn't something that is currently supported by the official Hello Smart app. Hopefully we will in the future! But for now, it is displayed as a detail in the Car Details.


    The app is so refreshing and so much information about the car can be known.

    I have 0.3, but somehow the trunk does not get activated. maybe i am doing something wrong…?

  • Another nice update.


    Looking at the JSON, there doesn't look like there's much more you could add currently - the only thing I can see and think of is:


    • Air quality particulate information for inside and outside the car
    • A map showing where the car is parked (maybe that could open a maps application for directions too) - helpful when you can't remember where you've parked!
  • Hi,


    would it be possible to get access to the app? I've had a #1 Brabus since last autumn and the vehicle's software is extremely annoying. The app would be the first step towards a better time with the vehicle.

  • Hello everyone, hello Moritz Leicht , hello chriscatfr ,hello clementgzl

    after reading through the last active threads about Smart#1 for a while now, I came across this interesting Hello # app project. I would like to sign up as a tester for the app. If I understand correctly, this works via a request in this thread. I would be very happy to be accepted. Best regards
