I drove a Tesla model 3 dual motor today. It has a great premium feel, handles great, and great linear acceleration. It is interesting what a car with no engine is like. I really liked the regenerative braking too. Gives you good decel with just the accelerator pedal. It honestly felt very natural after just a short drive.

This is the very bright future of performance add-ons. The price needs work though.

I have version 2.12.9.5 in alpha test now. I don't have the device specific location shortcut maker working but I think everything else should be working now. I have been running it on my phone for a week now. If you installed 2.12.9.4 please update immediately.

When I pushed this to alpha Google runs a bunch of tests which is nice. They found over 60 accessibility related issues around colors and contrast. These were not there until I pulled the target SDK ahead. What a mess. I am not a UI design guy at all. Honestly I would prefer a boring black and white. All of these colors were automatically added along they way over the years using defaults. I did not set them. I have no patience for this UI stuff. Is there anyone out there that might be interesting in helping out with this? It would involve installing Android Studio and changing UI colors mostly. I plan to just ignore the warnings otherwise.

With Android 9 no longer needing the volume adjustment feature, and all the added hassles of keeping up with Android and Play Store required changes, it is getting to where it is just not worth the time investment to keep this app going. Is anyone interested in becoming a developer to keep this app going?
