    Uber app keeps closing itself.

    It’s been happening for several days now. It might happen 10 times a day. Often when I’m on a ride.

    Mobile App and API to make rides more secure

    I have a system and technology to make it easy for Drivers and Passengers to instantly and securely confirm a ride match. I will be releasing a stand-alone app which issues a PIN for the driver or passenger to Confirm upon Pick Up. This eliminates the chance for the wrong passenger to get in...

    Lyft's misspelling

    So, it basically means you'd have to fast to afford car maintenance after cashing out your earnings. At least they inadvertently admitted to it.

    App won't let me cancel

    It's happening more frequently. Rider doesn't show. I let the timer run out. I hit Cancel. Select a reason, and it doesn't go through. Try repeatedly, but it just goes back to the cancel page but doesn't cancel. And then it's stuck there - can't get another ping, and can't call support until it...

    Go through a GeoFence or cross county line - preferences and ride types reset. WHY???

    I've noticed that whenever I pass into and out of a geofenced area, a couple changes happen. Going in, the ride type may change - usually something is removed because "you're not supposed to wait there." That's fine. Here's my problem. Whenever I then leave that geofenced area, my driving...

    Oh Lyft; sometimes you’re so nice and friendly and convenient, while other times you’re silly, odd and unnecessarily annoying. Let’s start with annoying - yes, this graphic is annoying - but only because you helped make it so. Here’s the new interface for Lyft and why it’s annoyingly worse than...

    5 Features For The LYFT/UBER App That Would Enhance Both Driver & Passenger Experience

    First off, let us be clear that this is not about increasing Driver pay, or lowering Passenger cost. Uber and Lyft are not going to pay their Drivers more money. Both ride hail companies have been bleeding Venture Capital money by the billions, each and every quarter. They are constantly...

    A Ride Share APP that will disrupt Uber/Lyft

    An APP that sends a ping to the drivers closest to the pick up. Free Market pricing similar to when Uber/Lyft decide on a Price Surge based on Supply and Demand. Sort of like the Ebay of Ride Share. The difference with this APP is the drivers decide on the price and PAX can decide to accept...

    Get ready

    To explain it wasn't your fault that the app was down and your riders had to wait for almost an hour. Me? No thanks, I'll stay home.

    Calm down, partners.

    The app should be up and running in a few. Thank you for your patience.

    App reset?

    So, I live by an Army base, and 330 to 500 am is pretty busy there, but my stinking app seems not to roll over to a new day until 5am causing me to miss those runs. It seems like it wont shoot me pickups until the app moves to the next day.

    Lyft Driver's App

    been doing LYFT for about 2 weeks now, and my app will sometimes not make a sound when a new request pops up. What this means is that if I am not looking at the app I am getting dinged for missing a ride.... Also, is there a way to see the rider's destination? I actually start off with, "So...

    How many riders? App info

    I no longer see in app how many passengers to expect at pickup after accepting trip request. Where should I be looking for this info? In fare details I no longer see a calculation based on the number of people riding. When did I start giving free rides?

    Uber not sending cancellation notifications

    Late Saturday night during surge periods, four times after accepting pings during a trip, I turned up to the pick up address with the rider nowhere to be found. I texted and/or phoned each. Three told me that they had cancelled earlier on because I was too far away. One of these muttered...
