App has a severe bug

I'd been using this app for a considerable time, with numerous favourite locations defined (which, incidentally, is a total pain to go through) when one booking failed to go through due to a network signal problem ... and ended up in the system in "an undefined state". This booking cannot be completed, can't be deleted, and City Cabs' only solution is "delete and reinstall" -- including copying in any saved favourites from scratch, by hand.

This just isn't acceptable. (On top: app not designed for use on large screen iPhones, e.g. iPhone 6+ or 7+, let alone ipad.) Switching to a rival booking firm's system.

Latest update no improvement

I’ve been using this app for some time now but it continually frustrates me and the recent upgrade is no better. For one thing it didn’t recognise me and I had to register again although I then found that my old favourites had been found! The way the program works is counter intuitive and it’s about time it was completely redesigned otherwise the taxi/private hire companies who use it are going to lose business to the likes of Uber.
