News (RSS feeds; I sort of like this one)
Twitter (who cares if I stop to get petrol?)
Facebook (mmmmm. slightly useful)
Last Mile (haven't tried it)
Calendar (works pretty good)
Wiki Local (during a long trip from PCD, this was interesting to find out info in the small towns I stopped at for petrol).
As the above poster mentioned, these aren't in BMW Connected. They're supported by the BMW Apps feature in the car, i.e. when you start Pandora or MOG on your phone and connect to the car, they'll know how to work with it and put up an interface on iDrive. But yes, while those are running you can't access the features available in BMW Connected. That too is an Apple limitation in terms of background task restrictions.
