Ratings and Reviews
It is a nice demo app, but not ready for use. Station search by its number not working, sometimes the location fails too. Returning the bike was only possible by calling customer support. The return the bike button greyed out, not working and carried out counting so I had to pay an extra £1. So be aware, the app may overcharge you. No paypal, apple pay option, its unconvenient to use and complete the payment. App sometimes unresponsive, lagging. Iphone 5se.
In the 10-15 years I've been downloading and using apps I've only left 4 or 5 reviews. This app is horrendous, save yourself the 3 seconds it takes to download and hit your head against a brick wall instead, it's much more enjoyable. God knows how I've actually seen people using these bikes as I've been trying to open an account for an hour. When will people understand the term "user experience"?
