Question Tech package and apps?

Hi all,

I haven't found a good summary of what each of these things does. Anyone who's got a MY14 X3 want to chime in?

BMW Apps: as far as I know, this is currently hit-or-miss, but allows you to retrieve emails, calendar entries, text messages, twitter, and facebook statuses. Does it require a mobile phone? If so, does it require a USB connection or is advanced bluetooth ok? (I checked the website and it appears that emails and calendars aren't available for iphones. weird.)

BMW Connect: google browsing? What else? Does it require a mobile phone? Bluetooth or USB?

BMW Remote: iphone app that allows unlocking, remote horn, headlights, preconditioning...

BMW Connected: iphone app. Not sure what it does, exactly. Is this part of BMW Connect?

BMW Assist: emergency assistance and (optionally) concierge service.

BMW Online: ??

What else? What do I have wrong? What are some things you can't live without, and what others have been disappointing?
