Nice app. One irritating thing to complain about - sometimes the GPS position on my device isn't very precise, i am right at the bike station, the GPS dot is about 30 feets off, and the app doesn't let me unlock a bike! This NEEDS a manual override.
Mostly decent. GPS sucks - I'm standing next to a bike rack for 5-10min repeatedly clicking on the icon to try let me take a bike out. I shouldn't have to coax it like that. Walking to another station. It's like voodoo.
v3.2.5 is good! Easily 5 stars. You can get directions, log your trips, checkout bikes if you're near a station! The only reason I'm holding back a star is past history... if the next releases comes out without breaking anything major, I'll bump this review to 5. The only thing I find a bit wonky is traveling between networks. Say you visit Houston for a weekend. When you get there, the app knows you're in Houston, but still shows the name of your home share at the top of the screen and doesn't show any stations. You have to click the Hamburger Button, then "Show all Locations", then choose Houston. It would be nice if the app noticed you were 3000 miles from home and prompted you to switch to Houston (just like it does with your home share when you first install the app).
I couldn't even open the app. It would crash before loading.
Can't start the app. It's crashing every time I start the app
If it worked it could be really great. Several times I was at a station and it would not allow me to check out a bike because the gps would show that I was about a block away from the station even though I was righr there. The convenience of not having to enter in my phone # and wait for a text was my main reason for downloading the app in the first place. Also the "trip" info was constantly incorrect (one day my ride was shown to be 4.5 miles, the next day the exact same ride was showing 0.33 miles, google maps said it was 2.5!) So if they can work out the bugs it would be great.
Version 3.2.5 includes bug fixes and additional features, such as:
• estimated travel time when getting directions
• improved mobile checkout
• additional areas to login or sign up
