Ratings and Reviews
App is okay, locations not so much
They’re either understaffed or dirty or system glitch. I’ve emailed their customer support but their response is to the location. If there is an issue with the location and we can’t get help, then that’s where customers support is supposed to support you. I had 3 shower credits. I used one and the other 2 disappeared just like their customer support. I’ve since decided to do most of my fill ups at Loves or Pilot/Flying J. I only use TA if it is a remote location and have no other option.
Too buggy (for iPhone anyway)
Did anyone even test this prior to release? Upon signing up, I was asked for my birthdate. A date picker opened up, but there was no indication of which month or year it had defaulted to. So I picked a date at random to learn that it had apparently defaulted to 2003. So, to get to my actual birth year, I’d have to just keep track in my head of how many times I’d have to click to get back to when I was actually born. I’m pretty old, so that would take too long. The app now thinks I’m 18. Whatever. Why do you need it anyway? Once the wonky date is in there, there is no way to edit it because you aren’t allowed to use the keyboard, just the useless date picker. Moving on, I wanted to reserve a shower at a location a little under 100 miles away. The app defaults to locate within 50 miles. The interface looks like I can change the distance to 100 miles, but nothing happens when I click on it. So I tried disabling location services to trick the app into letting me tell it myself which location to search for, but the shower reservation module won’t work at all if you don’t allow it location access. I’m all out of workarounds and so far I’m not impressed.
EDIT: It looks like you can’t actually make a reservation for a shower; the app just allows you to get in the shower queue. In this case, the 50 mile restriction makes sense, but the app shouldn’t refer to this as a “reservation” since you can’t select a specific time slot ahead of time.
Great Start, Not Ready for High Demand
Been using this app for 1.5 years since it launched with pumpsmart. Throughout the covid frenzy, made such a easy to pump function possible. However, beginning in January of 2022, I noticed bugs and glitches that were occurring more and more often. Specifically pumpsmart functions. When peak fuel time occurs (times when truckers are fueling at the same time in lines across the nation) the app simply gives up and goes brain dead. It spins and spins, and spits out a no card on file message (which simply means it timed out due to too many truckers using the same function which slows down the sever). App developers, please update your sourcecode & servers to handle the HIGH DEMAND of truckers fueling at the same time. It may cost to upgrade servers but how much more lost business does it cost due to slow or broken tools?! This peak time is 3pm-6pm CST for fueling. Only way around this glitch is to fuel before or after these times. Company drivers are filling and clocking off so the pattern makes sense. But being unable to fuel when all my cards are digital can be a dangerous situation for a fuel card. FIX IT! Invest in your tools and your clients will be grateful.
