Reservation system is still broken after updating app. Station had a bicycle. When you scan the bicycle the station does not release the bicycle nor did the bicycle have any power. I don't think this company does any testing before they update their apps or "patch bugs"... When the app is updated I either see more features that are not of interest to me while the features that could be useful remain broken. Smou seems to spend more € on advert stickers instead of fixing the app, stations, bikes.

Bicing service needs an improvement!! Most of the time stations are either empty or full. Electrical bikes are often out of order. You know when one station is close to be full/empty why don't you manage it properly?

Every single part of the app functions poorly. Listing all the various bugs encountered would take pages. That's pathetic given how long the app has been out
