Get a new high school kid to develop your app

I’ve given this app several shots while here in town for a conference. I’ve used Lyft and Uber quite a bit in the US, so I’m rating based on their apps, and even some city transit apps. It’s such a pain to enter addresses. It never recognizes the address, and won’t let me enter it manual. I usually have to use the map search and I have to cross reference on Google Maps and/or Yelp. It takes entirely too much effort and time to set up a pickup, then you’re spent waiting for their system to find you a driver. Lyft and Uber can do all this in about 90 seconds or less most of the time. Slow GPS updates too. Was pretty excited to find an alternative to void of Lyft and Uber, but sadly, it’s awful. No real issues with the rides themselves other than getting it going.

Used only once during our Vancouver vacation - worked great!

During our June 2015 visit to Vancouver, we needed a ride to the airport our day of departure. Vancouver has a great public transport infrastructure but hauling a large suitcase on a bus or train isn't easy. So I installed the Black Top taxi app, hailed a cab, and within minutes was notified a cab was on its way. It showed the cab number and relative location on a map. It arrived in five minutes. Couldn't ask for a better way to hail a cab. Highly recommended. Yelp had some bad reviews but we had a great experience which may be related to your pickup location. The app will also estimate the fare. It was accurate within a $1.20 for us.

Can't even enter the pick up location

After a long wait at the phone call, I decided to download this app. However I couldn't even enter pick up location, I tried to enter the location manually or pin the location on map, but the results are the same. This app shouldn't even exist in App Store, cos it ain't working. I wouldn't take the cab of this company anymore, piece of crap.

From a frustrated user, just deleted the app, waste of data usage.
