Cabs pick up when they aren't even close
The problem isn't so much the app as it is the crappy cab driver greed. I had to cancel my trip twice just now because both cabs went from being 2 minutes away to being 10 minutes away. They grab you as a client when they aren't even near you or heading in your direction while other Beck cabs are parked right beside you.
On my third attempt, nobody "accepted" the fare for a few minutes, so I cancelled the trip and signed up for Uber. When I finished signing up for Uber a cab driver calls me on my cell and tells me he waiting for me. The cab is right in front of me, despite cancelling the last call (which was the one who accepted because it was a different number than the first two I cancelled).
I decide to get in, figuring I might be paying for it anyway since something obviously registered at Beck.
I get to my destination and the guy expects me to pay him instead of through the app I ordered through.
Soooo. I won't be using this app again... Or Beck.
