Ratings and Reviews
I think the developers have done a great job on this app over the three years I’ve been a driver. I’ve seen the app change drastically and stay very functional and reliable while adding great new features. One that is missing and I think should be added is the ability to change the navigation voice volume from normal, loud, or low. This is an option within Google Maps navigation settings, which I know Lyft Navigation basically clones. This would be a great benefit to me because I use the voice directions on every trip, I just prefer it because of how accurate the timing is, turn-by-turn, and so I never forget a turn if I ever get slightly distracted. I just find that the volume for the voice is overly loud and is fairly annoying considering how often voice directions are played during navigation to and from a trip. I don’t like the idea of muting the navigation voice, I’m sure a lot of or even most drivers do this, but I think it’s better not to, I just need the voice to be lowered and have the settings mimic Google Maps’ navigation voice settings of low, normal, and louder. I would use the low setting as I do when I use Google Maps. I also understand I can choose to switch to the Google Maps app while doing Lyft rides, but I also would prefer to use Lyft navigation at all times because it’s more efficient and easier to follow everything, leading to less risk of problems or general confusion for pick-ups or drop offs, and also less distraction while driving.
Definitely better than Uber!
I have been trying to drive/deliver for Uber for over 2 weeks now (really YEARS but I give up bc they cannot get it together with me simply having multiple email addresses, as if this is not 2021!) after already seamlessly signing up for Lyft through their very detailed verification process. Uber has been the worst experience for me in terms of verification to get activated and it seems they need to learn their system themselves or opt for an update. I was back and forth between their email system, their chat system and rarely a live person for weeks! Lyft just seems to have it altogether and I have been enjoying this experience! Seeing Lyft evolve not just with the app but also as a whole has been a pleasant experience. Lyft seems to offer more incentives (hopefully that continues to evolve as well) and Lyft also effectively communicates when there is an issue: they make sure there are ways to reach support when it is needed as opposed to “hiding”their contact information and making me play Bop it to communicate with anyone like Uber - putting Uber to the back of my mind and a 1 star in my book. Hopefully after this review Uber’s contact information will be made “readily available” all of a sudden so others aren’t stuck in the never ending Uber vortex of unsolved tech issues like I was.
It could be better
Hello I’m a Lyft driver and I have a lot of problems with the app, to many hacking situations in this last year , the email the support it doesn’t work or it doesn’t recive the emails when raiting something is happening in my app, I thing is depens of areas where we are working, because I have friends every where in the country in diferents estates, and their app is working great not with this kind of situation I have now. I thing there’s a big manipulation in some areas of the Florida states, like monopolies like the limó companies also I know some people in Miami area they make more then 300 dollars a day with a simple car like my. That’s the reason I couldn’t contact with the real people in the office of Lyft in South Florida. I talking with peoples they have less rides of the calcification “I have almost 6500rides I’m 5 stars driver” but they make more money of me and their app work with not problems. In the South Florida offices is always the same they telling you o yes we have a lot of problems with the app and blabkablabla , I was in the office putting the complaining and my app for 3 days continue work great after 3 days the app come back to the same situation, no rides for prolonged time more then 2 hours, you have to tour off the app and the phone and restarted again like more then 10 times a day, is really sick, sad and ensani.
