The car giants Ford have created a smartphone app that will enable users to control their electric car from a distance. The app is available for iOS, Android and BlackBerry OS and will shortly be available for Windows Phone 7. Using the app, you can control the vehicle’s charge level, turn the car’s heat system on/off, locate it and unlock it remotely. This is only the beginning and things are bound to get better and more effective with time. Definitely something to look out for and certain to boost the usability of the electric car.
