Phones?

This should be a primary feature of the OnStar GPS on-board maps. Seriously - this shouldn't just be a phone app but built into the car.

Can I plug in at your home or business?

The idea is interesting. It's more of a social network until all the public charging stations are entered into the system. The user has the ability to hide data and stop sharing. The comments on the web about this is if a EV driver suddenly needs a bit of a charge, that there would be people willing to help them get an hour of electricity into their vehicles.

The data requested on the sign up screen is:

Email address
Password
First name
Last name
US phone number
Charger type (standard outlet or J1772)
Address where outlet or charger is located

You gotta have faith that the people contacting you are legitimate.

Anyone can sign up who has an outlet to share. No electric vehicle needed.

This really makes sense for businesses who want EV customers.

Android PlugShare app available

Let us know if it comes out for android.
I'm going to reply to my own comment because I just found the answer.

The PlugShare app is now available for Android based phones. It is very easy to use. There is a login function, but you don't have to be logged in to look for charging stations. I'm not sure what else you can do by being logged in. (I didn't try creating a login.) Maybe you can add charging locations.
