App for obd reading

based on some research, I want an app to read codes that don't show. My car has a rough idle only on a cold start and I want to check and see if any codes are being thrown that don't pop up.
Bimmerlink- sounds good but has mixed reviews.
OBDfusion- looks good but not designed specifically for bmw.

Any others thst I can use or any comments on these?

Thank you.

Car has always hesitated a little on cold start. After upgrading charge pipe and larger intercooler it has gotten worse. Car drives phenomenal tho. No issues, hesitations, any lag, just that damm cold start.

I assume you dont have BM3 or MHD?

I thought that MHD allowed you to read codes without purchasing any of the modules. Could be wrong though. I believe you would still need the bimmergeeks cable, however. Worth checking.

I don't think torque pro would show hidden codes, but that is what i use for datalogging and reading on my other cars.

I figured as much, but i thought that the MHD app, which is free, allows you to read codes without purchasing anything. You just need the monitoring module to monitor/datalog, and of course flasher module to flash. I would check that out to verify.

Torque pro is only 5$ and is an awesome app, only requires a cheap OBD2 bluetooth/usb/wifi adapter, and can datalog, monitor, and read codes, but is not BMW specific and may not read shadow codes.

xHP and MHD will both read BMW codes without spending any money.

Torque Pro is excellent.
