Best Saves money shame you can't put your name on a text but best app ever
Used to like this. I was a repeat customer, maybe around 20 times. Lately this has turned into unreliable service. Once prebooked taxi was 25min late in the morning when going to airport, and today prebooked taxi took another customer. No way to call them or contact any way. Causing disasters!
When I first downloaded it, everything was working fine. Then problems with GPS started, it wasn't able to find anything. And just when it looked like that got finally fixed, it stopped working altogether. Just goes round on an endless loop searching for a car, even though it says that search time is one minute and vehicle availability is good. Don't know if this has something to do with Taxi Helsinki leaving the service, but I've had to download their app and start using that, because it works. Very disappointing. Edit: As I already stated, the current problems started just as the GPS problem got fixed somewhat. The app getting stuck in a loop of 'looking for a car' happens once the order is in progress and has nothing to do with whether the address has been entered manually or located by GPS. Just today I tried to use the app again - estimated search time 1min 10sec, it said, but was still searching after five minutes, at which point I switched to the taxi Helsinki app, which was able to find me a cab in 30 seconds. Pity, as it was a handy and useful app.
You guys fixed it for Oreo! Good job!
Unusable: crashes conveniently just AFTER sending SMS verification. Other than that it seems that user cannot pay the ride with the app and probably even can't tell where the taxi should go. Pretty much EPIC FAIL as an application.
Does not work on Android 8. Crashes every time.
has begun popping up notifications, even when the app is not in use
