It's only good for travel one-way
The app insists your starting point is the current location of your iPad, and that is not very accurate, either.
In order to pre-book your return trip you need to call or use website.
Call me spoiled, but I expect apps to mostly work. GPS is always off, payment through the app never works, cancelled pick-ups never go away and the ETAs are hit and miss. There’s really no comparison to Uber’s experience.
So Bad I’ve Switched Cab Companies
This app would be great if it worked. It doesn’t though. Maybe it works for some people but I’ve complained to their dispatchers many times about it and they don’t seem to be able to talk to their software colleagues. Every time I’ve tried to use it, or uninstall and reinstall, I get a message that I don’t have admin permission to run this test software. End of story. If it works for you - great. If it doesn’t then don’t waste your time trying to find a workaround. Call another company.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
