Not working with iOS 8.2

This is actually a good wee app but since the latest iOS update the app no longer works. It removed all my details and keeps asking to register them again but fails to "sync" every time. Also it keeps asking to input a preferred payment option which I would do, but when I go click on it and go to the screen where you can choose cash or card, the screen is blank. Shame, really as I used this app a lot.

Amazing everytime

I use the company for work or personal reasons. The drivers are always super friendly and polite. They have never been late and the prices are always the best.

I have never faced a problem using the app even after the iOS update. Capital cars is the only company I use in Edinburgh.

Keep up the good work. Thank you.

Tip: it would be helpful to see an estimate of our fare on the app prior to booking.

Good company, bad app

Have used the app for about a year now. Recently logged out and won’t let me log in saying user not found. Can’t re-register we won’t accept my details as they’re already registered. I WANT to use this company however the app will not allow it so I will book elsewhere from now on.
