Decent but needs a modern overhaul
I don't like Uber. Other ride sharing apps are fine, but I tend to like cab drivers better.
In general, the service has been pretty good, but often it takes forever to get a cab - and sometimes I have to cancel and restart the search multiple times (or it times out).
It would be awesome if this was a consistent, comparable cab competitor to Uber (and the like). As it stands, with its lack of functionality and slow response, Curb is a clunky "also ran" to the growing ride share market.
Good attempt to copy Über and Lyft, but...
This app is okay. It tries to close the gap between users of the like of Uber and Lyft to regular taxi service.
There's a reason why Uber and Lyft are successful:
They are good at customer service. Complaints and kudos are taken care of immediately to both customers and drivers.
Cities taxi service has gone long enough without a challenge and they feel like the have the right to treat you like crap like they're doing us a favor.
This app is trying to close that gap, but it's still only the middle-person. In the end, you'll still need to deal with regular taxi services with mediocre customer services.
I admit, I'll still keep this app on my phone on places where Uber/Lyft isn't available.
Seems to be working fine in central Hollywood, CA. 2 rides so far and more convenient than calling or flagging for a cab. Nice to see driver's name on app match their posted name on the city license placard.
