Kiwi OBD KS App Reviews

  • Still basic than other apps.

    By JustOneAFS
    I was excited when I heard about this when it was in its Kickstarter phase. Really disappointed with the turnout as I backed the Kickstarter. Pretty basic even with the update. No communication. Just disappointing.
  • PLX Kiwi 3 software app

    By bearcat4551
    Using Kiwi 3 with PLX kickstart software. Nice and clean main screen with changeable gauge buttons. Unfortunately everything else is missing. Always coming soon after first year. Very disappointing.
  • Awesome app

    By shavuot.
    This is an amazing app
  • It’s highly dependent to Bluetooth accessories

    By Majorityleader
    It’s highly dependent to Bluetooth accessories Without them is almost useless
  • Looking forward to what’s to come

    By Actbizerk
    Best lay out and view I’ve seen with OBD apps. Still waiting for the features to come, can imagine that software development takes time. Features that are available work well, like any other app, sure they’ll continue to release updates every few weeks or months improving the app overall.
  • Please fix the app crash at launch

    By Biff Smallwood
    Unfortunately while I like the potential of the application, I cannot come to give it any more than 1 star for the simple fact that the last two versions of this application crash upon launch. It happened out of the blue and hasn’t been resolved. 15 Dec 2017- And this update crashes too. SMH.
  • Kick-stopper Fail

    By Simply Greedy
    I really wanted this to work. I’m one of the original supporters from kickstarter and have been anticipating the release of this app for quite a while. This app has not worked for me from day one. A lot of functions are still not open. I cannot reset my OBD2 codes nor can I read it. Any attempts to make this app function as advertised will make the app crash. In my opinion, this app wouldn’t even be worth downloading for free.
  • Best OBD Setup

    By Paul T5413
    This is by far the best OBD setup I've encountered. Connected right away to my Kiwi quickly gets all of my sensor data. I've verified that mpg, trip data, are all accurate. Scan codes works, reset code works. Standard and metric works great and fuel efficiency. This is an app designed by a company who knows automotive sensors gauges based on the attention to detail demonstrated. This looks more like a high end dash to fit with the newer model cars. I was told that soon you'll be able to get aftermarket sensors like wideband boost etc. That will make this app from sweet to freaking awesome! Great job, great app with lots of room still to grow.
  • Beautiful high performance app

    By Janche1010
    I use the Kiwi 3 interface from PLX Devices. As soon as you launch the app, my first impression is that it's beautiful. A great deal of thought has gone into the design, function and flow. Tap start connection and it automatically finds my hardware and connected in seconds without the trouble of having to pair my Bluetooth. All my parameters come in quickly and I can view parameters that I thought I never had such as catalytic converter temp, fuel pressure, engine timing. I can also see them in different forms that other apps don't offer such as a scrolling graph, rainbow style gauge as well as numeric. The drive green is a cool feature and the algorithm works to save a great deal of fuel. I've successfully read an reset my check engine light on my Mazda and Toyota without any problems. The trip info is the most useful for me where I can track my fuel consumption on different trips and also calculate the value of fuel used for reimbursements. Looking forward to testing the other features soon. This is an app that stands above the rest. Recommend.
  • Software Not Ready

    By KWBreaker
    The KIWI adapter works great, the software is a huge disappointment. I am using the KIWI adapter with competitors software and getting great results.
