So one thing that continues to be a hindrance with the app is the GPS is seemingly always oriented backwards 180 degrees out directly after clicking slide to pick-up and it seemingly is the most confusing always when in the most precarious position or when I need it to be the least confusing due to being in a potentially dangerous area or otherwise and other times it’s just really slow bringing the map back up.
One thing that would be helpful would be for the driver to be able to customize the in ride responses as well as having the option to maybe save replies to custom messages. Thirdly I suggest that a nighttime photo of the car as it currently looks would very likely make connection with the passenger a bit smoother in busy environments and otherwise. I would even venture to say more important and productive than is the facial pic or maybe the face pick could overlay the car in the background or something. And the business of the facial pic being centered is a bunch of bull for real. I can certainly appreciate “make sense” policy but having to have a photo centered perfectly in order for a silly face photo to be accepted, the importance of that is beyond my comprehension. And the gas issue… when trying to apply the gas savings vis the card, it is unable to zero in on the store as the app will have one doing circles the parking lot hunting the sweet spot which will never appear. That’s about all I noticed which could be tweekes by developersor others

I like that as a driver, we have the option of having more rides queue up while we drive but I’ve been having a bit of an issue with the app queuing me with long distance (37-47min) trips without letting me know before accepting. I don’t know how long the trip will be until I swipe to pick up passenger. If I could know beforehand I could possibly stop for gas or a restroom break if needed. It’s just a inconvenience.
Also the app update is very inconvenient when it blocks you from touching the screen while driving. I’ve tried to go offline in the middle of a ride so that I don’t get queued with another ride and it blocks me from doing anything onscreen until I stop. Sometimes I am on the highway and I can’t stop.
I understand this may be due to safety reasons so that drivers don’t text and drive but I feel it is better to go offline than to get auto-queued with more rides and having to cancel on them afterwards. The same goes for not being able to click on the passenger’s info while driving. There was a confusion between me and a passenger about which address to go to. I could not tap on his info to see the destination address because the screen was blocked! Very frustrating

App flaws and ripoff for drivers

I’ve been doing Uber and Lyft in Chicago for about 5 months now and I have to say I am quite appalled at how manipulative Lyft is with their drivers. They talk big numbers and bonuses and guarantee $500 a week, advertise big bonuses for new drivers, and make it seem great. But then you drive 15 minutes to pick someone up and they don’t show up and I make $0 for it. Lyft says “it’s because you didn’t arrive within 5 minutes of the scheduled pickup.” Lyft doesn't care to ask if I couldn’t find the entrance because the customer’s phone number wasn’t in service. They give you rides that take you all over the place, making it 10x more difficult to reach your 100 rides, they pay you about $3 for a mile and a half ride that took 8 minutes (and that includes the extra 55¢ for gas), and they put up bonus zones with no intention of leaving them there long enough for drivers to show up. Why even have bonus zones when they disappear in 30 seconds? Because they are trying to lure drivers with zero intention of actually making sure they get the bonus.
Lyft develops an app and leaves the drivers to take on all the wear and tear, time loss, gas money, and doesn’t even care to compensate them properly. I can assure you once I hit my 100 rides, I will never drive for Lyft again unless I find myself in a $10+ bonus zone or they decide to increase fares or quit taking such a high cut of the measly ones currently in place.
