2011 Nissan Leaf owners are right on the cutting edge of car technology, but so far only Apple iPhone users have been able to enjoy the full experience of controlling the car's climate control and charging timer functions from a mobile device.

No longer. Android smartphone users are now privy to the party with the new Nissan Leaf app for Android OS devices.

Like the clever iPhone app the Android version is free to download and through a subtly redesigned interface users can control their Leaf's state of charge, view estimated range and pre-heat or cool the cabin using Nissan's Carwings service.

The app is U.S-only for the time being, but versions for other regions are expected to follow. For more information on the app and the 2011 Nissan Leaf, check out AllCarsElectric.com.
