Iphone only, not a surprise. Also, the guy sounds like a real douche when he says this:

Hear that? It's the sound of no E30 owners whatsoever giving a fuck about your app.



(Yeah, the app looks neat, but the entire tone of the article made me want to punch the author.)

He does that frequently.

I have been increasingly more disappointed with Jalopnik in the last few years... ever since Murilee Martin left. And yeah many of the articles have always had a satirical or snide tone to them, but anymore they just insult the intelligence of the reader... also, Apple, meh. Though the concept is cool
