CAMPBELL, CA - Coulomb Technologies has introduced new features for its ChargePoint smartphone apps for the Blackberry and iPhone. 

Now available for free in the iPhone and Blackberry app stores, the ChargePoint App gives electric vehicle drivers real-time charging station status. The new version allows drivers to search and filter for charging stations by status: available, in use, voltage level, and paid or free stations. 

EV drivers can find stations near any specified address, get turn-by-turn directions, and even start and stop a charging session directly from their smart phone. In February 2010, Coulomb released the first generation of its iPhone App and to date has seen tens of thousands of downloads.
