Ratings and Reviews
Does not take payments for cycle hire despite adding payment details (which has to be done on the website as the app will not allow you to do this). As a result the account is blocked when you need to hire a bike and you cannot resolve using the app as (and I may have mentioned this before) it doesn’t take payments.
App is slow to respond and most of the “features” in the menu open up a
Page in safari.
Frequently crashes and requires rebooting.
I though the one saving grace was the map facility which (until I just checked to write this) used to have the drop off locations for ease of navigation. Now this has disappeared.
Such a good idea for Swansea but so poorly executed
The app barely works with the bikes. Used it 4 times and 3 of those times I had to use the call centre to actually let me rent a bike. The 4th time it appeared to work, but after returning the bike after a half an hour cycle, today I have received a text saying I have had the bike rented for 22 hours. Back on hold with the call centre now, 15 minutes and counting.
We have put men on the moon but can’t get this right.
Staggeringly slow and half the bikes don’t have any power.
A nice idea in theory but with most things in this world it absolutely does not work.
Cheers Santander, sons crying.
