Extremely slow UI even on fast WiFi on a 2023 flagship phone. The lag often results in failed bookings if a parking space or vehicle is available when you click to book but it gets taken by the time the app actually sends the booking request. If you're lucky enough to get the booking, half the time the vehicle is not at the parking lot.

Initially I was blocked from downloading in the playstore while in Japan, but I found the SDK and downloaded the app. I thought the app was great, the most difficult part was no translation option for English, so I'd have to screen shot and use OCR with Google, the overall experience, cost and ease of use is superior - and to be honest, faster than taking JR or metro! Can't wait to use it again in November! Good job developers!!!

Do not update to current version. Freezes when you attempt to book ride. Also map is unreadable in the new "dark mode". Update: now the older versions are being forcibly stopped from working (must update to use) so I guess I will just have to stop using Luup. Useless...
