I watched the presentation about "major changes to the driver experience". Totally lame. Their coming out with an app update. Big deal. How about a rate increase? Or at least something we might care about?
Meh. Rate improvements would help much more than psychological mind games, gamification, and finding new places for things. And what is this shit about automatically starting the navigation towards in-demand areas. It already does this when a ping pops up before you accept it so now it's going to begin navigation somewhere without an actual accepted ride? Ahh hell naw!
Anyone else remember asking for a new app? Unless they change their nav to always show the fastest route or other things to help us maximize our earnings then who cares. They already have a better app than Lyft don't need to "gamify" it. Definitely don't like the idea of it actively trying to navigate you to boost/surge zones. There is a reason I don't chase surges. Makes it even easier for them to steer drivers where they want. Make no mistake that change is in Uber's best interest not yours.
