Good option in Edinburgh

Used the app several times while visiting. There was an error the first time, but it worked fine after that. We needed a 5 seater and this allowed us to choose type of vehicle. Prompt and very friendly drivers. Just need option to add tip from within the app.

Won’t work unless connected to WiFi

I can never get the app to work unless I’m connected to WiFi, which makes it useless for when I’m out and about. I’ve tried deleting and reinstalling and it’s still the same. Getting this rectified for the next version release would be great.

Zero Thought Was Put into this App

It’s horrible to use, navigate or set up. There are no systems integrations between card payment on the app and the payment system and the drivers hate it! As customers, we hate it too. It doesn’t even record my home address as a starting point. For goodness sakes, please have a think about it and go back to square one and start again. Maybe do some actual testing?
