Old RAC app available under another name. Read On.
If you want the old RAC app back it's still available as the RAC app just under another name, it's called "Driver Assist". Just search for this on the App Store and you will find it is the old RAC app supported by Barclays......just supported, they have nothing else to do with it other than the Supported By Barclays statement and their blue eagle logo on the app thumbnail. I now use this every day as it's the old RAC app complete with dots and incident list just like we all used previously, it can sometimes be a little slow to update but at least it's better than the RAC app. There are lots of positive reviews on Driver Assist, it would be good if any people that download it left positive reviews to make it more popular so they hopefully never shelve it, or update it to a crap version like the RAC app. At the same time leave a negative review on the RAC app to insist they change it back to how it was.
There are no adverts with the Driver Assist app and it's free! I won't bother with this new RAC app until they change it back to the old app with no stupid improvements and extras which are of no use. It's no wonder that there are so many negative reviews the new app is bland pointless rubbish!
Decent, but could do more
This is mainly a mapping tool, and to plan routes. Also allows you to see local traffic and cost of travelling. It has a 'rescue me' button that shows your location, but would be good if you could click this and then request RAC help through the app - as you have to remember the location the app tells you then ring the RAC to request help. Would likely make getting help a lot easier, and this is something the AA does quite well. Also would be good if you could add your membership card / details to the app and make changes- as well as add your membership card to Apple wallet for quick access.
*edit* also to add, would be good if you can access and see what member benefits you get with membership. As well as use the app to take advantage of these.
Very glitchy and nothing compared to AA app
I've just switched from AA, which I don't regret except to say that AA have an excellent app which includes access to member benefits and a very useful tool to request a call out through the app, meaning that it transmits your location to them and you can see how far away they are an when they will likely arrive etc. I've not had to call RAC out yet, but this seems like little more than Google Maps with your RAC membership number and their telephone number included, which is a little disappointing. Also disappointing is that it keeps crashing on my iPhone 6 - especially on the news tab (although, like most of the app, I'm not really sure what the point of that app is). The app isn't why you get breakdown cover, but in terms of the app they could do much better (still just about worth having if you're with RAC though)
