I've tried several times to use this app, and renting a bike _failed_ EVERY time.
After reading the reviews I was skeptical, but needed to get a bike. I wanted to see if there were enough bikes around that if I was issued a broken bike I could swap. Unfortunately I couldn't even see the bike map or locations without feeding money into the system. I'm not paying 8 bucks to figure out if I can rent a bike.
Great concept, very poor software implementation. Was unable to even register... Junkware.
Could not register, it didn't list any plans for me to sign up with in LA
Won't actually let you pay
I love Sobi Bikes and I use them all the time. The app has a big shortfall, the booking system doesn't work. I will book a bike and then a minute later it doesn't register that I booked a bike. I tried reinstalling the app but it didn't work. This is frustrating because I've lost bookings which meant there wasn't a bike when I got to the pick up location.
