Garbage wanna be middle man app

Dijutal assassin

As if uber and lyft doesnt prey on drivers enough, you have these apps popping up All over the place that supposedly make you more productive. This app does not tell you anything new. It doesnt have any extra info regarding uber surge or ping information that the uber app cant tell you, even with api integration. In fact, uber servers block this app from refreshing information too often. It gives you a list of events going on but that is nothing new. Google that.

I tried the trial to confirm these suspicions and prove what people on uberpeople had been saying for a while.

App is worthless.

As a response to the developer, yeah, uber itself limits the number of times this app can receive new information from their computers because you all are an enterprise. Its about the number of times your app can be refreshed with data from them. They LIMIT it.

Secondly, there is the principal of how surge works on uber to begin with that lets me know that there is no real world testing of the benefits of knowing whether or not there is surge around you by virtue of how surge works on uber to begin with. It will show up and disappear and what your app does is charge people in hopes if them chasing it which is incredibly obtuse and counter productive to the goal or mission statement of making someone more effective at uber.

Ie. The predatory remark.

Nice, but could be better


This app is nice for alerting me to surges. The problem I have is that I set my alert radius to 30 miles as that covers all the important areas around me, but also extends into another state where Uber won't let me drive. If I set the radius to a distance that will not reach into the other state, I would also lose the areas in my state that I care to be alerted about. What would make this a 5 star app is if instead of setting a radius via miles, I could draw on a map - similar to how Zillow does it. Then I could draw a blob to include the 5 areas I care about and leave the areas out of state out of my blob. A less cool way would be to let me list the cities I care about and then alert me if there's a surge only in those cities. I think the blob would be a cooler implementation though.

Make the location use notification go away...


I was going to attempt using this app after reading the reviews and having mixed feelings about it. Personally I drive more for Lyft now, and they do already send us notifications of events etc. unlike Uber. However having driven for Uber I was going to test this app out, except I will not agree to let it track my location even when the app is closed, and as such, the notification at the top of the app saying I need to change my location access to always on, disables me from being able to use the app. If your app simply will not function properly and notifications can’t be dismissed when not set to location always on, then to me this is a pointless app and it’s not worth the battery drain on your phone.
