Better than the last app
This app is a big improvement over Happy Cab's first attempt. It works pretty well, I've used it many times now. There still seems to be a little bit of an issue with drivers accepting the orders though. I have had a drives accept an order and his vehicle never moved on the map. After 15 minutes I called dispatch and they called him and viola! he started moving. That is an issue when you call for a cab as well though. I have also had a driver accept an order and then call me to say he was on his way and mark it as me being picked up when I was not. This driver also tried to take the long way and pretend he didn't know where I was going either. It does seem like it usually gets you a cap somewhere nearby so you don't have to wait forever. The only other thing I would say is that it doesn't seem like the drivers also get the notes you put in for how to find you because most often they call me trying to find me. In a city (Omaha) that is not accessible to those without cars this app does help but until kinks like drivers getting the notes are fixed I can't give it 5 stars.
So-so first impression
It should be a standard function of an app like this to send a 'successful booking' confirmation e-mail. Features need to be more robust-options to send info via e-mail, text, etc. The good news is that cab company was able to confirm that booking was sent to them, but if I have to call them, this defeats the purpose of the app.
The app timed out while registering my card and now it doesn’t recognize my email/password. I clicked to reset password. An email with the link came just fine. Tried to login with new one and still no. Ridiculous. I can only imagine the issues if this can’t even function right.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
