The completed trip notification is very unreliable. If you exit the app with the back button it doesn't seem to notify. Hitting the back button doesn't close any other app completely. (UPDATE this is my presumed cause, only the developer can tell for sure) Bottom line: the app should always send notifications. Also annoying empty squares instead of stations. UPDATE: that seems to be fixed now.
Good when it works The app can take a while to refresh and often longer to pull up my location. Occasionally it works well but highly variable
Perfect companion Used the app a few days ago and was delighted. It shows bike and dock availability accurately, and this is displayed on the maps. Used it a lot and never had any issues. Location and number is always correct. As a bonus, cycle route is also displayed on the maps, which is useful for somebody who is new to the city.
Location bug fixed The bugs have been squashed and the app is working well again.
Super helpful I use this app all the time as a member to look up routes (better than Google maps because it takes you directly to the nearest station), plus shows you which stations have bikes available or not. Really useful app that's become a part of my weekly routine.
Android fail Unable to rent a bike on my Samsung phone. Only way to do it was with a friends iPhone. Then, when I had issues renting a bike, they said that system maintenance was not allowing them to assist. Basically iPhone only, and not Android friendly at all.
