OBD - App / Software for A5 (service reset & issue with backup sensor)

It has been about 20 years from when I played with the VACOM software when I was doing modifications on my TDI and I need some help with what Scan tool to utilize. I have a Veepeak OBD Bluetooth interface and have been using the "Car Scanner" App for my other vehicles but recall that the AUDI and VW interfaces are proprietary (or maybe I recall this wrong). I have tried to search the forums to find what App is the best or if I need to invest in a new tool without luck. I am looking for some handholding on options for this OBD scanner options (will what I have work). Currently I am looking to reset a service interval that is showing up on the dash (will not reset with oil reset) and trying to diagnose a backup sensor that appears to think it is being followed. Thank you in advance for any constructive guidance on this.

VAGCOM / VCDS is still the king. OBDEleven is another popular OBD / mobile app.

Your are right that the Veepeak won't work with Audi's proprietory codes. I have one myself and it won't work. You can only read the generic OBD codes.

For the price what is the better choice?
Buy once cry once or is the extra $ not worth the investment?
OBD2 or Ultimate ??
