The app is supposed to allow for reservations, but when I attempted to reserve a taxi an hour after making the request, it instead dispatched someone right away. I was then penalized because I did not want to take a taxi an hour before necessary. It also originally would not let me select a standard taxi. I had to confirm my origin and destination points repeatedly, too.

It's rare when you can even get a taxi. When you can it's nice. Sometimes I try over an hour and just give up. I know that can be said for taxis on the streets as well, but this is rediculious. Also sometimes drivers go around in circles and opposite directions when you are waiting for pickup. Then if you cancel you can't use the app for 5 minutes. It's nice when it actually works.

DON'T RELY ON THIS. YOU WILL GET STRANDED. Used this app for the first time to get a cab in the city (which I could have just flagged down myself as usual) to a tourist location many miles away. Once I was done at the tourist location, the app would not let me get a taxi back and I was forced to walk many miles back and eventually a man in a truck gave me a ride while I was walking in the mid day sun, 100°F/38°C heat, on the side of a busy highway. Really bad app. Never use this. DELETED.
