Main features: App Switching and Ride Alerts.
Ride Alerts: This feature is used to show an extra 'warning' type alert on top of a ride offer (ping) - based on user-set criteria such as ride type (Pool, Eats, etc.), or pickup time/distance. Requires sign-up for trial.
App Switching:This feature makes it easier for a driver to drive for Uber and Lyft at the same time. It works in the background - when a trip is started on one service, it turns off the other service automatically, and turns it back online at the end of the trip. Or, the tool can simply just notify the driver of the situation and not perform any control action. It helps to improve the 'Acceptance Rating', and 'Availability on multiple services' without any significant impact on battery life. Requires active trial or paid subscription.
How It Works
When a ride is accepted on one app (either Uber or Lyft), the driver can choose to:
a) get a reminder if he or she has forgotten to turn off on the other app, OR
b) automatically bring up the other app and auto turn it off.
Note: In rare situations, the user may have to manually switch the other app offline.
When a ride ends, the app can:
a) remind the driver if he or she is still offline on other, OR
b) automatically bring up other app and switch it online.
The app helps drivers keep their Acceptance Rate high by avoiding having to decline ride offers from other service if already on a ride. This allows drivers to be active on both services.
It also helps to make sure drivers don't miss out on potential new rides by accidentally forgetting to switch back online the other app at the end of a trip.
It helps Rideshare companies such as Uber and Lyft because they don't assign rides to drivers who are unavailable because they are already on a ride.
It helps passengers by reducing the average time to find an available driver since they won't be assigned to an unavailable one.
In short, everyone benefits - drivers, passengers, rideshare companies! It is a perfect companion to the driver apps.
After download/installation, user should sign-up with a valid email address to enable the app for a free trial period of 14 days. No payment information is needed for the trial period sign-up - so there will be no automatic billing at the end of this period. User has the option to purchase a monthly or yearly subscription to the tool at the end of the trial period - via in-app purchases.
Accessibility Permission: In order to monitor and control the states of the rideshare apps, this app (like all apps that attempt to perform similar functions), requires the user to enable the Accessibility permission for the app. When first started, the app will ask the user to turn on the this permission. The permission is not used for any other purpose; it is not used to collect or log any personal data.
In-app Billing Permission: This permission is required only for the purpose of purchasing a subscription at the end of the trial period - if the users decides to make such a purchase.
The app runs in the background - the user does not need to keep it open while driving. It will also automatically restart if the device is rebooted. The app needs to be opened only to change settings or subscriptions.
After the free trial period, continued use requires a paid subscription which can be purchased from within the app.
Subscriptions can be cancelled from the Google Play Store app. Cancelled subscriptions remain active till the end of the subscription period - but will not auto-renew at the end of the period.
