After the improvements made on the map key and the list mode, it’s time for the charging station details sheet to go through a graphic redesign! This update is part of the visual refresh of the Chargemap application. Thanks to a more refined design, we aim to offer you a smoother browsing experience so that you can efficiently access the information you need. For the tour, it’s this way! 👇
Useful information from the preview
A simple browsing experience starts with quick access to the most relevant information. We have selected the most useful information and brought it up to the station preview screen.
Charging access information
In addition to the address, distance, Chargemap Pass compatibility and number of connectors, you can now immediately find out the opening hours and whether the charging access is free or paid without having to open the details of each charging zone. An improvement that can save a lot of time in your search.
Quick view of the Chargemap rates
For all compatible charging areas, rates are now available by clicking on the new blue “See rates” button. You can therefore immediately check the station charging rates with your Chargemap Pass. Like the rest of the app, the display of the prices has been revised to be as simple as possible to prevent any confusion.
What’s new on the actual details sheet?
Thanks to the contributions of the Chargemap user community, the application has accumulated a great number of photos from the different charging points. It was thus time to rework the gallery interface: enlarged photos and smoother horizontal scrolling for even more comfort.
Address and GPS coordinates
You’ve found a charging station on the map and you want to enter the address in your GPS application. However, your favourite navigation tool is not on the list of compatible apps offered by Chargemap. The new “Others” menu – which also includes all the possible actions you can do on the charging station – now allows you to copy the address and GPS coordinates in one tap. You can then paste the coordinates of the charging station into your favourite navigation tool!
We also decided to add the score given to the network, as yet another reliability indicator. It corresponds to the average of the reviews left on all the network charging stations.
Increased browsing comfort
Clearer information hierarchy
In general, Chargemap designers have tried to remove any visual clutter from the interface to allow you to quickly browse through the charging station information. Like the map key and list mode, each family of information is now grouped together in a white insert on a grey background, making it more readable and pleasant to scroll through.
Say hello to the swipe!
One of the key improvements in this update is the navigation between the different tabs of the details sheet. Instead of the initial long single page, the tabs are now divided into distinct pages that can be accessed by swiping your fingers left or right.
Of course, you can still access the tabs by tapping on them, but the swipe is very handy.
That’s it for this new series of ergonomic improvements of the Chargemap app.
☝️ Don’t forget to update your app!
While waiting for the next wave of new mobile features, we hope these will help make your charging experience more comfortable and peaceful. As usual, don’t hesitate to share your comments and impressions with us. They will, in turn, be used to guide future improvements!
