App Reviews


    By Mattpizza
    This app is a must for anyone using an electric car for their first time! And with the latest updates the travel planner is very helpful! Don’t forget to log on to their website on a computer, it helps there too if you don’t want to be confined to a phone/iPad. I wish I knew about this app before I bought my Hyundai Ioniq electric. I realized that I can’t go from SoCal to Las Vegas. Let alone to Salt Lake City its going to take A LOT longer than traveling in a gas powered car. The 124 range on my car just won’t do it for long trips. There are not enough charge stations. This app gives you all the info you need to adjust from a gas powered car to electric. Enjoy!
  • You gotta have it, but it could be improved.

    By Pierre Letruc
    Plug Share is basic for electric driving. It's the leader in car charging apps, letting you know at a glance where the nearest charging station is. The future of electric driving depends on an extensive publicly accessible charging infrastructure, and PlugShare is the way to connect to it. Since I wrote this two years ago, I've noticed a few wrinkles. For example, it's hard to figure out how many miles are between chargers on the map. A mileage indicators would help. And the trip planning function is difficult to use. For all that, though, it's the one service that unites all the difference charging providers on one map. I still say you gotta have it.
  • Evie relies on this app!

    By toomanyyarns
    IT’S THE ONLY APP YOU NEED for up-to-date information on available charging stations. Many thanks for developing a great app. Not just for finding chargers but for the rating system also. The 10 point scale is very helpful so that the user knows the reliability of a station also. I like that it is constantly updated by users for real-time information on the status of charging stations. Of course, the only drawback is also that it relies on the check-ins of users for the info. Also, if someone checks in, you can communicate with them through the app if you need the charger.
  • My go-to EV charging app for when I travel!

    By Amy9876543654
    Go-to app for EV charging when I travel! Most of the other charging apps are charging-brand dedicated. Plug Share covers everybody’s chargers, including private home chargers that you can arrange with the owner to use. The reviews by other users are also very helpful. Checking in and reviewing is really easy! This app is extremely handy both for on-the-go driving, and for trip planning. The only reason it gets four instead of five stars is because locating where YOU are on the map is not obvious. There’s a little compass arrow on the map that you have to press. It took me ages to figure that out!
  • Valuable resource

    By Y3yit0
    I find this app to be the most complete one out there. It is a must have for EV drivers. The interface is friendly and easy to use, and information from the EV stations is easy to update. Having this be crowd sourced makes for the most up to date information. There are less critical functions (for me) that could be improved; such as the trip planning and navigation function -it is not so easy to use. Overall, however, I am very satisfied with the app and I use it very frequently, especially when out of town.
  • Life Saver

    By Myi3
    This app was a life saver when I first got my electric car. I live in an apartment so am completely dependent on public chargers. I spent hours on this app finding convenient chargers that match my plug near every place I frequent, and I still have some nearby chargers I haven't even tried yet. I am so fortunate to live in Oregon with a half-way decent infrastructure supporting electric vehicles! This app essentially made it possible and easily workable for me to own an electric car. I honestly don't know what I would have done without it. Thank you!
  • I'd be lost without it

    By Patchnparrot
    Plugshare keeps my range anxiety at a low simmer. Like the old jingle, I never leave home without it. One improvement I'd appreciate is the ability to view the altitude graph between the last charging stop and the final destination. As well as the ability to see the altitude graph for a trip that does not apparently require a charging stop, since some trips in mountainous terrain might not be possible in fact without a charging stop.
  • Essential for the non-Tesla EV, Important for Tesla

    By Freizeit1234
    We just drove from Sacramento to San Diego, PlugShare eased the way in our new Chevy Bolt. It still has shortcomings, but nothing else comes close. Info on individual charging stations is uneven, especially what level of charge is offered; planning needs improvement but is workable once you figure out how to use it; and not everybody "checks in" so which stalks are available isn't always correct. But there's no living without it!
  • Great consolidated app- Apple Watch a plus!!

    By EV Forever!!
    This app is personally my favorite. I don't care what brand I charge at I just want to know if the station works!! This site makes checking in super easy. I have found the ratings and color scheme to be clear and concise. Eventually it would be great to be able to open your blink or ChargePoint account from this app so you could start charging via the watch or your phone. But hey- this is overall a really slick app!
  • Useful but not always sure it's up to date

    By K + A
    This is a helpful tool, but I'm not sure I can count on it being up to date. It would be great if we all pitch in and give updates on the charging stations' statuses when we charge so everyone knows what kinds of plugs are available, if it costs money to park in the structure (aside from the possible cost of charging your vehicle, etc.). I'll try to do my part to keep the app information up to date.
