The app itself works great for me. I think how well most apps work depends on your wireless plan. The only thing I wish the app had is an option to indicate that you tipped in cash. My husband and I often tip in cash and I don't want to come off like I don't tip. I have had issues with drivers canceling and I believe it's because they think I won't tip. As for the service, I love lyft. It is a life saver. It's gotten expensive though. I wish they would do the shared rides again.

As a user, it's very much recommended. As a driver, not so much. I wouldn't be surprised if a driver canceled on you, but know when they do that themselves, it affects their pay. The next ride gets booked to a more reliable driver who's farther away. That's why you sometimes need to wait long for pick up. I was a driver, done wrong by passengers, but live and learn. Moved on, much better for it. Still use as passenger on emergencies because it's faster than taxi. Unles I need to schedule a ride

Prices fluctuate to insane rates. Also if it says "pickup in 5-10 minutes" don't connect me with a driver who is over 20 minutes away. The app also tries to change your shared ride option when choosing the longest pickup time. It'll swap you to the 2nd option and ask you to approve the new price. People who failed to pay attention will find themselves paying more for an option they didn't select.
