Nice and helpful

I like the fact, that I don’t have to pay cash, once my credit card details are remembered by the app. For my business travels it’s also crucial to have invoices delivered to my mailbox immediately after the ride, so the accountant is happy. What I only miss is that the app doesn’t work in Poznań.

Uber is better, still

I really want to give taxi drivers a chance but this app doesn’t help in that.

1)When I enter my address, the app shows a waiting time of, say, 5 minutes - but then when I actually request a taxi I often end up waiting 5 minutes for the app to just ‘find’ me a driver (ie the app is stuck on the searching screen). Uber usually finds me a driver in a matter of seconds.

2) When I do manage to find a taxi, the “real-time tracking” screen shows but it doesn’t work - the driver and the ETA don’t update.

Developer Response ,

Hello Hiphoppanonymous, thank you for your review. We regret, that the search for a driver for your tour with mytaxi did not work. Although we are continuously working on improving our capacities by training the drivers respectively, waiting periods can occur in times of high occupancy. Regards, your mytaxi team

No credit card payment

Used to work great, but for the last 1.5-2 months I’ve had to pay by cash because the app refuses to accept either of my credit cards (“Error. Unfortunately, your selected payment method is currently unavailable.)
I’ve tried logging out and back in, reinstalling the app, and emailing customer support (a week ago they said they would contact me back, I’m still waiting to heard from them).

Aside from that, the app is alright. But please fix the payment issue.
