What's New in Version 23.0.0
The UI was apparently designed by somebody who's never read Apple's Human Interface Guidelines. Or, for that matter, anyone's. The lack of adherence to standard patterns isn't just about the look, but the feel and the interaction mechanisms, too. To sum it up in one word, it would be "awkward"; three words would be "ugly and awkward"—you get the idea.
Functionally it's okay, if you can put up with the eye-bleeding colour scheme and frustration in trying to find addresses and add them to favourites (there really ought to be simple management interface for them); not to mention the modal alerts (not everything needs to be treated as a critical error!), and text messages telling me to download the app I'm already using—what's wrong with push notifications?
This app would be quite decent if the developer hired a decent UI expert to overhaul it.
And really, it's nearly 2017, let me store a credit card or use Apple Pay or something? Otherwise I'm just going to flock to Uber like everyone else, and I'd rather not do that.
Looks can be deceiving. Works very well and is a good local Uber alternative but not the prettiest app.
