Ratings and Reviews
Bike Network Good - App Serviceable
I got 3 days usage and about a dozen bike rides in.
The app has all the basic features needed, but the downside is a complete refresh of the whole interface just about every time you look at it. (Imagine if Google/Apple maps reloaded your whole screen with a US-size map and then zoomed in every time you turned from one street to another).
Showing locations of available bikes was good (as was their distribution). My success rate for actually unlocking a particular bike was just over 50% though (not clear if app or bike is to blame). When you find a bike/app/location that works, it works well, though, so try to dial that in and start/stop your trips there.
So I was renting one of the bicycles last night and I attempted to put the bicycle on hold. As instructed to do I inserted he U Bar into the frame but the keypad proceeded to tell me that I inserted it incorrectly. When I tried to take the U Bar out of he frame, the U Bar was locked into place, but still displaying the try again screen. After I had tried calling for support and reporting the issue, I tried unsubscribing to see if it would let me force quit from using the bicycle, I tried logging out and logging back in, I tried seeing if I could rent a different bicycle to see if it will stop using the initial one and none of these worked. I think these sharing apps are great and I love that they give us a free hour of use everyday but I’m currently am still getting charged and I haven’t gotten a response (I tried both email and calling). If the App has a similar thing as Bird does and allows you to disable the bike you were using from your phone, then I don’t believe I would have this issue. Yes I understand that I need to put the U Bar back in place at a registered hub area but I wouldn’t mind getting charged a bit more for this feature instead of being continually charged for a broken bicycle
I'm a User Experience designer—meaning I design experiences on devices for a living—and I hadn't had a frustrating experience with an app in over a year... until I downloaded SoBi. You guys seriously need to send your product designers out to test this app themselves; the usability problems are so obvious that kids could probably fix them. The discoverability was an issue in and of itself, but I managed to get all the way to the payment screen, then inserted my credit card info correctly only to get a popup that said my information was wrong (but wouldn't tell me what information I needed to change). I gave up after multiple attempts, so my boyfriend downloaded the app and went through the whole onboarding process and then couldn't figure out the payment part either (same errors), so we just didn't rent the bikes. We were standing in the park on a nice sunny day, next to these available bikes we couldn't rent because your app is so bad. The worst part is this was our second attempt to rent those bikes. The first time, an entire rack of bikes was out of service: 10 bikes, not one could be used. Fix this experience for fudge's sake...
