Zimride is a social ridesharing community where you can find people going the same way you are, and make friends as you go.
You can book a ride in your area or post a ride of your own. Rich user profiles let you verify who you are riding with, as well as find common friends and interests.
Zimride for iPhone now brings all of this functionality to mobile, allowing you to rideshare on the go.
• Post rides as a driver and earn gas money.
• Search and book cheap rides as a passenger.
• View profiles to get to know other Zimriders before sharing a ride.
• See friends in common and read reviews from previous Zimrides.
• Stay on top of new messages and reply to ride requests.
Great idea, great service, ...buggy app.
I realize that Facebook is probably to blame for most of the bugs, but I really don't understand why I can't view another member's profile without the app redirecting me to a Facebook dead-end (what is cross-site messaging and why do I need to care? I hate it.) any way, your reputation suffers if you don't reply promptly but how are you supposed to reply if you can't see if the person who messaged you sounds like a good person to get in a car with? Frustrating. Also, you can't edit ride listings you've created so don't make a mistake or need to change your plans unless you are at a computer. I really hope the app improves because the service has real merit.
it's a beautiful wrapper around the already amazing Zimride mobile web app. is there a chance for an entirely mobile optimized version with extra features? (with GPS tracking for drivers, etc? so many improvements an further ideas could be done in a native app).
congratuations for the release, nice job!
the service works!
technical concerns aside- giving kudos to the service itself - it's brilliant & makes a difference! That said, the app is a shell for the web app so it lags at times. Otherwise it really works *better* than advertised! Thanks to everyone who makes this service happen including all u drivers & passengers! :)
