Ratings and Reviews
Too glitchy to get past 1st screen
I literally just installed this app, and it’s so glitchy that I instantly deleted it. I’ve never had to do that with an app before! When you open the app, it wants you to enter your name and some personal info in order to create a profile. However, the keypad that it brings up is not the normal iPhone keypad; it’s just a bunch of blank squares with no letters that function like a keypad. If you wanted to guess, you could probably select boxes through trial and error until you spelled out your info, but I figured if it was that ridiculously difficult to even create a profile, the rest of the app probably isn’t working either
Can’t enter required setup details
Upon starting the app, a typical setup screen appears asking for name, phone number, and email. However, with an iPhone (iOS) the keyboard that pops up doesn’t show up in the proper location and it doesn’t have any of the keys labeled. Someone in product testing should try the app before making it live in the store.
Maps are not working
I was able to put in my info, but when it takes you to the map and trip info, the built in Google map does not work. It is impossible to put in addresses and set up a ride.
