Updated Mini Connected now available

Just downloaded the new update to Mini Connected so will be trying it out tomorrow. I can confirm that third party apps such as spotify, deezer, tune in etc are all still available but web radio appears to have gone

All I can say to everyone thinking to update to the new version is: if you like/use the feature apps DON'T UPDATE to this version, all the feature apps are gone (Minimalism, Mission Control, Web Radio, Driving Excitement, etc) and you're left with the Streetwise feature that it's kinda nice but definitely not a good trade

Do people actually use Mission Control and Dynamic Music? I used it once to show off and never touched it again - too annoying. Driving Excitement is still there.

BTW, TuneIn Radio is a Connected compatible app and does the same stuff Web Radio did.

Unless I'm missing something only some parts of the Driving Excitement feature are available (force meter and sports instruments) but it's not the same and at least I used Mission Control everyday along with the Minimalism feature

I'm trying to recover the old version but I emptied my trash can without noticing that the old app was there :/

I liked the Minimalism app, especially on long highway trips. The voice recordings were too repetitive for me though.

The new Mini Connected app is odd. I don't understand why they have this app and also Journey Mate. You would have thought they would have combine the two, but each app offers some different functions and some similar functions. Maybe Journey Mate only works with XL option? Unclear.

Correct, journey mate is only for XL

Has this appeared in just the Appstore? Can't yet see any updates on Google Play.

As of right now I don't think there is an update for android, only iOS, which is a bummer considering how bare the android app is.

Must say I'm torn on this. The interface is much better looking and easy to navigate, but I do wish they had kept things like the dynamic music, mission control ,etc even if it meant burying them in a menu setting somewhere. I understand those were niche items and goofy, but they were definitely unique to MINI. Now the app seems kind of....bland? Hopefully this update will be the start of MINI really trying to focus in and improve the app. Still happy to have the ability to use the connected apps like pandora and spotify though.
