What's so wonderful about it? It calls roadside service for you & can supposedly note your location by the GPS you are already using in your phone. But the biggest issue is it's always running in the background, no way to turn it off! You have to go into your Apps Management and Disable it! I did one better, I Uninstalled it!!
Have not used it yet It does not close (keep hitting back, nothing hapoens) but at least hitting home gets me out. App names are confusing when downloaded, it's actually under "Roadside" when searching for it.
No way to close the app on android Design bug. Please patch the app to have both a hard exit menu choice and to also close gracefully on a device back button signal from the app home screen. I should not have to kill the process at the phone OS level to exit.
This app is a pain. The only time I tried to use it, I had to enter the VIN for my car, before I could request service. I ended up calling, instead. Dear AARP: Why do you not let us, e.g., enter the VINs and tags for our cars on your web site, instead of in a Droid app? I am now seriously thinking of returning to AAA: They may be more expensive, but they understand what service is!
Nice App. Can't close I love the idea of this app especially for my spouse who has trouble finding numbers to call, but there is no way to close it on our Samsung SIII other than force closing it. Next update?------ Its been a year and I still have to force close the app. Also no account info. I need to renew, can't do it on the app and the website needs flash (not available for the android). Guess I'll have to go back to the dark ages and buy a stamp. ... wait a minute, do I still have any checks?
This thing stinks! I downloaded the app as instructed from the AARP website. When I attempt to register for this "FREE" app, I am required to input my Roadside Member Number in order to register so I can obtain my Roadside Member Number
