Anyone compared what can be done using 'no additional cost' shortcuts/automations on -caristaapp- vs OBDeleven?
Are 'apps' basically automating Long coding?
Here's what I'm seeing...
Credits for 1-touch apps concern me. How much do the apps cost? There is NO info on app cost! Pay credits each time you use an app is not good. It should be buy the app, use it forever or for a year, or something reasonable! I searched forums & OBDeleven web - no info. Even called DAP & ECS (I'm in the USA) -- both of them are 100% clueless on apps costs or where to find that info.
Time based subscriptions are not good unless you are a professional making money from it. Monthly only makes sense if you are doing one-and-done. Yearly is fine but it costs too much for personal use.
I saw a thread showing OBD11 changing colors of the digital dash, etc... didnt see this on Car-ista? Is this missing? Anything else missing from Car-ista .
Looks like their 'apps' are free with the subscription, no additional cost, ever... yes?
Then the question is... does Car-ista do all the same apps the OBDeleven does?

1) Yes one click apps do the coding stuff for you. 2) You can lookup the one click app costs if you download the app and add your car(you don't need the dongle for this). Most likely it's between 10 and 100 credits per app.
The question you should ask yourself is: Do i want to spend time searching for coding instructions or not.
caristaapp has more apps for the cars BUT you can only use these and nothing else. If the option you want to change is not supported you can't do it. OBDeleven basic offers you apps aswell BUT there are less apps than in caristaapp(for my car). However if you buy PRO you get full access to coding etc. That means if you don't find a one click app that fits your needs you can do it by yourself. This requires some time since you need to lookup/search the right coding.
My advice is buy OBDeleven to get more advanced options or buy caristaapp if you don't need full access to all CU.
Always do a backup before you change anything! I'm not responsible if you mess things up!

aphex13: Anyone out there know how to get the Puddle lights on an MK7 GTI to fade in and fade out instead of just turning on and off? I used the app to keep them on while folding. Then I disabled it, and they don't fade anymore...

vwjap: Did the eBay ad say you got extra credits? You can get 5 credits a day by opening app and watching ads, needle sweep is a funny one, some cars it only works when the ignition has been switched off for a while, some new ones don’t work at all

sgt1297: You can actually get 6 credits per day - one for logging on and the option to watch 5 adds for a specified length of time, each one worth i credit.

vwjap: Which is kinda what I said (as he’d already mentioned he got one a day already

k1200s: Getting credits for use with my Audi S5 seems a waste of time as optional one step adjustments have disappeared.. like the comfort flash ..

theoldboy: k1200s have you looked in adjustments, retrofits and workshop sections of the app menu just in case they put it in the wrong section
