Unfortunately Necessary Farce
I was very excited about the new app and the opportunity to hail my cabs via this; however, upon usage there is frequent stalling, inaccurate wait times, delayed calls/notifications, and a poor estimate of fare pricing. I call this a farce because I tend to need this app frequently due to a lack of desire to use one of the rideshare apps. The emotional roller coaster with this app is hilarious. When it's a good day, it's great... when it's a bad day... boy are the frustrations real. Regardless of the app's shortcomings, flash cab is great.
Reliable +/-6 mins.
Log into the app; it says "the closest taxi to you is 2 mins away". Place the order; "your taxi will arrive in 8 mins." What is that? Yes, the taxi arrives eventually, but in 8 mins I can flag a taxi off the street. Otherwise, Flash Cab is generally the better choice of all the Chicago cab companies.
No Uber for me
I know a lot of people take Uber, but Uber is not a real cab company that is regulated by states. With the app, I can do anything Uber users do, and my rate is the same no matter the time of day or night. Greatest thing is that I don’t have to give my credit card info up front.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
