Great app, safer than using the ride sharing companies because all taxi drivers have a chauffeurs license and the proper insurance. The app shows a picture of the taxi driver, and where they are located when you book the trip. You do get a call from the cab company to let you know that the cab has arrived. Also you are able to put in how many minutes you would like the driver to wait. You can pay for the ride online using a credit card or pay the driver directly using cash. The only thing that is missing is an estimated arrival time.
Intrusive on Privacy. Insisted not just on knowing my location and phone number but having access to location and controlling my phone's calling functions. Used my email address not just for account purposes, but to send me marketing emails long after I gave up and uninstalled. I never knowingly consented to that - it must be in the TOS you are forced to sign to install. Arro is far better for my needs in any case.
The app has updated but now is worse. It takes more steps to book. The address pick up is now next door. The arrival time estimate is longer than it says, and it takes longer for the driver to know you paid. The fee has always been 2 high. Gonna try arro n another app n see who's best.
Approximately 50% of the time it works well; as expected. The other 50%, I cannot sync to the taxi or the app cannot connect with the server. I don't know where along the chain the problem resides. Sometimes I suspect it is the driver doing something--like how their "credit card reader must be down" (yeah right).
Cannot change/cancel scheduled ride from (non-existent?) "Active Rides" screen. Website times out, except for FAQ, which doesn't contain much info. Addresses from Foursquare unreliable. Support non-responsive.
Would give 0 stars if able. Location services didn't work. Tried manual and it kept reverting to city, not address. Completely unable to order cab with app. Called cab. Showed in 3 min. Why did I waste time with app? Won't anymore.
