Mercedes Me App barely works

Yes, there have been plenty of posts about it, but is it just me (no pun) or does the app barely work? I am using it on my Iphone and now, every time I open it, I have to scroll all the way down to click accept the TOS agreement, then completely re enter my info and relog in. Even though I have "Keep Me Logged In" checked. I never uninstalled and reinstalled and still the same. And even then, the app only works half the time.

Why is it a company whose average car costs well into the 70k range, can't make an app that works reliably, while my other car - a 1 year new Hyundai Tuscon, has an app that works 100% of the time, and doesn't have the stupidest restriction of having to have at least 6 gallons of gas in the tank to have the remote start work? 6 gallons of had to run for a maximum of 10 minutes??????

The app is underwhelming and for me lost its utility fast (2016 US version), except tracking my GLA if it's within a mile or so. If it's not remembering you, might be your level of security, perhaps not accepting cookies.

Not to pile on Merecedes Me but i find it quite unreliable which of course it will be when you really need it (i.e. did I lock my doors, where'd I park). Crap shoot whether it works.

Yes, i am constantly updating this stupid app. it will NOT work unless you have the latest version, AND it constantly logs me out and forces me to log in. Who remembers their passwords for stupid apps like this? I use the app so rarely, then when i do need to use it, i become so frusturated at the process i need to go through to get the **** thing to work.

They need to outsource this app to a shop that can make a regular consumer grade product.
