If Nissan wasn't going to figure out how to create a remote-charging app for owners of Leaf electric vehicles, someone else was sure to do it.

In this case, the result is a free, third-party app called LeafLink. While Nissan's official Carwings app lets folks set charging times from inside the car, LeafLink lets people do it remotely, in addition to pre-setting climate controls and other goodies, according to Green Car Reports. For a $9.99 upgrade, LeafLink lets Leaf owners program a future charging time, with the information being stored on a secure server.

Those captivated by such possibilities can check out the LeafLink app page here.

      Some of these Apps can help lock buyers into certain brands, would not change from using British Gas their App saves you over £100 if you do your own meter readings & its so user friendly packed with so much detail on energy consumption and latest ways of saving energy. If l was in the market for Leaf this App would help a lot, and would lock me into the Nissan brand, at bit like my Sky TV App, Petrol price.com finds the local garage with the best gasoline prices, TomTom Europe sat nav App on both my i-pad/i-phone for just £45 (Brought on special offer) is brilliant on the i-pad big screen, with user friendly interface, never dropped once only use the app a few times a year so don't need £245 SAT NAV version, used i-pad TOM TOM app in Europe a few times, was a God send in South of France last year, you don't have to learn some new complicated other hire cars sat nav sytem whilst on vacation wasting holiday time, if your hire cars lucky enough to have on fitted in it.

      Nissan should buy this company and offer the app for free.
