It works pretty well most of the time in my area. Every once in a while it glitches to a black screen and won't let me accept a ride. My biggest issue is that the developers keep taking the bar graph that shows peak times to drive off the app. It seems like every other update it disappears. It is one of the best tools to help map out my driving. I only drive part time and being able to map out when to be on the road is extremely necessary.

Have always loved Lyft, but since the last update, it has been performing poorly. Its response is slow, to the point of being a hazard when getting directions to a pickup or dropoff, as well as when responding to a request for pickup. Reported this to Lyft after doing all the usual things (updating, uninstalling and re-installing, purging caches, re-booting, etc.) when it first started, but it's been over 10 days and no improvement. PLEASE FIX THIS!

So slow i can't even work. So sad. I thought it was me and my phone but decided to check here to see if anyone else was having the same issue and what do you know. A lOT! THIS NEEDS TO BE FIXED ASAP. EXTREMELY DANGEROUS. nothing works properly and the navigation is so bad that it is to the point of unreliability. I wish we could choose Google maps to use instead but isn't an option. You can't end rides. Pick people up or end a trip. LYFT PLEASE FIX! IF U CANT FIX, JUST GO BACK BEFORE LAST UPDATE
