App needs better UX

Evie is obviously 5 star operation but its app is a 3 star at most.
- First load of vehicle map takes a long time
- No status indicator what the map is doing, lots of dead time
- Is there a live update of the vehicles? Doesnt seem like it I have to close and reopen app to discover newly taken or available cars. No refresh button
- Some days the API is slowwww and there is no caching of vehicles so everytime you open the app it takes forever to see vehicles
- Vehicle positions may be guestimated due to faulty GPS
- No indicator if vehicles are plugged in and charging, helpful to decide which vehicle to pick at a charging station
- Sometimes icons overlap so I wont see two vehicles next to each other
- Really slow delays talking to car, pausing, unlocking, etc probably Wifi issue or technical thing with the onboard system
- Extremely slow delay of ending trip, bluetooth will quickly lock car but the actual end trip indicator continues to spin which makes me worried I need to wait until its complete, wish there was a final trip ended screen or a notification on the phone like Lyft does
- Hourcar interface whole nother bag of worms.

Great service, but app slow to load

Love the Evie service- but the app often loads extremely slowly and is slow to unlock/lock the car when I start or pause/ end a trip. Hope the app developers fix that.

Awesome service, app could use some improvements

The fleet of vehicles provides a stellar non-owner experience. I wish more cities had a service like this. If you don’t own a car, or simply want to dash across the city without worrying about parking, this is the app to use.

At the same time, the app is very simple in what services it provides. You won’t get intelligent notifications and server / Bluetooth connections are quite finicky. I’d love to see them bring the app house and integrate with the other transit services offered across the city.
