Ratings and Reviews
Handy but needs...
Was very handy on our travels around Kyoto, Osaka and Tokyo but on 2 occasions our driver didn’t realise that our trip was already paid for and was very confused. Thus ensued long conversations between themselves and the radio operator. Not even ‘it’s paid for they can leave the taxi’!. It took at least 5 minutes before they understood that our fare had already been paid via the app. Was frustrating to say the least when we just wanted to get out and explore Japan! I think I wouldn’t use the app again until this problem has been fixed.
Can never get a taxi
Developer Response ,
Thank you very much for the review. We are constantly striving to further improve our service and applications.
Awful. Don't bother does not work
It won't call a taxi unless you register and you can't register with a non Japanese mobile number or without a katakana keyboard for your phone. First version worked and was great - this update is a disaster and entirely non functional.
