5 months ago, I thought this was a decent beta, with some glaring problems. 5 months later, it hasn't received a single update. Sad. UPDATE: One month later, it still hasn't been updated. Additionally, there's been a failure in recruiting drivers to use the app. Unfortunately, this initiative appears to have been abandoned. UPDATE: nearly a year later, and the situation is no better. Until the taxi commission requires cabbies to have this app on, it won't work. There are simply no cabs on the app.
It never shows available taxis. I would use it instead of Uber and Lyft if I could actually SEE where taxis are.
Sign up is difficult because the screen isn't optimized to fit correctly, with the input prompts hidden under the keyboard. The map doesn't center very well, being several dozen meters off of my GPS' actual location. Available taxis don't all show; I can hail a cab more readily. Entering a destination only pulls from city datasets... so if you enter "Pinch" to go to the bar it'll instead send you to Pinch, WV. But none of this matters because when you press the button to hail the cab you get an error that it failed to initialize and you can't actually hail anything.
It's laughable... Doesn't center on your location. Location is inaccurate. Clearly isn't picking up most cabs. This is the best they could do in the year it took them to put out this app? Pathetic.
No cabs ever available, literally Something is seriously wrong...I've literally always gotten the error message that no taxis are available. Never been able to use the app with success.
It could be so much better This app doesn't seem to be showing all of the taxis available, maybe it only shows the drivers with the app? The wait time estimates seem very off. A driver from across town was only 2 minutes away? Not possible.
