App needs to be updated AGAIN
The feature of forcing people to rate their last booking before making another is freaking annoying! Recently they ran a promotion and the advertisement somehow forced my account to be logged out. When I launched the App I would be forced to the rating submission screen but couldn't progress past it because I wasn't logged in suddenly! I couldn't log back in because the stupid rating screen would open automatically. I had to delete and redownload just to get it working again. Maybe that's minor but what stupid app design and functionality!!! Maybe next time I will just delete it for good.
I’d add an end trip button
The app & system seem simple, yet it was difficult to use. Thankfully the support staff is friendly with a sense of humor! I was standing next to the car and it wouldn’t unlock as gps was saying I was too far away. I was also confused about making stops & leaving the car vs leaving the car to end the trip. This could definitely be made clearer. Overall it’s a great idea & really nice cars!
Feedback loop hell
All this new app version does is ask me for a rating on my last reservation, then tells me I need to login to rate a vehicle without any way to login I literally cannot exit the screen to leave feedback. I ended up getting a Lyft instead because I literally am prohibited from using this app now by the programmers.
