Your trips now PLANT REAL TREES!
Your Hytch trips USED to show you how many virtual trees you saved. This was based on emissions you didn't produce during your Hytch.
NOW Hytch has changed that stat in the app to TREES PLANTED. That's right! When you track trips in Hytch, WE will be planting REAL trees that you earn during your travels!!
Improved the flow and experience for selecting driver & sending invites:
- New flip-to-select-driver experience makes it easier for users to choose who is driving when they invite multiple friends to share a ride.
- Found some bugs.
- Squashed some bugs.
- Cleaned up the mess.
Ratings and Reviews
Hytch is great way to make a little bit of money for doing something you probably might be doing anyways - carpooling.
My wife introduced me to the app, and we love to use it! It's exciting, almost addictive, to start up a Hytch ride and see how much you make on one drive.
This is a new app, so it understandably has kinks that need to be worked out. Everyone I know that uses the app, as well as myself, have experienced dropped rides. After a 30 mile drive, you're ready to see how much you made and - what....an error has occurred. And just like that you make nothing. Can't complain too much as I haven't really lost anything.
Once the app is optimized, I will change to 5 stars!

I am a proud user for approximately 1 year and excited for all of the benefits: reducing our roadway users, reducing traffic (everyone benefits), improving the road conditions by reducing the number of cars that wear & tear, reducing pollution, improving air quality, helping our planet, and last but not least putting a few dollars in our pocket.
This app is user friendly and technical support was there for me that one time, and is interested in your comments. I am excited about spreading the word and reaping all the benefits.
The app is great for the environment and great way to make some money. It will be great if the app could be further developed to automatically connect when on public transportation or when car pooling. It’s annoying when you you have to find someone to connect with on public transportation and even more annoying when you are car pooling and not aware it’s not working until you made it to your destination. Great kudos to developers!
