How do you run both apps? Like, do you still get a ping if the app itself is not open? I do lyft, but am waiting for Uber background check to be complete to do both.
any particular reason why uber in the foreground?Have both apps open. Uber in foreground, lyft in background. When you accept a ping from one, turn the other off. If you don’t you can get a ping from the other, which can be dismissed. But that effect the acceptance rate.
There are also apps that are supposed to do the app switching for you. Tried one, but decided it was doing stuff that I could just as easily do myself.
Haven’t ever had that problem. I do both and it ends up being random for me which is in fore/background and just get the pop up at a request. My problem is accepting one and forgetting to go offline with the other! LOLI’ve never done Lyft in foreground as I’ve heard (but never tested it so it could be wrong) Uber times out if It’s in background.
Absolutely. Happens a few times a week. And on a few occasions I know I’ve turned Lyft off, but still get the ping from them. I’ve noticed a few times when I’m done for the day I’ve turned both apps off, and yet I will still get a Lyft ping.Haven’t ever had that problem.

Not really. But I have noticed that Lyft pax tip more on average.
It depends on the day for me. Monday was incredible for Lyft cancellations. Thursday and Friday I had none.personally Lyft had way more cancellations than Uber. I uninstalled Lyft
I have an iPhone6+ ... I often run Uber & Lyft apps simultaneosly in background ... The only problem I get is when I receive a ping from both of them at the same time (rare, but it happens in busy areas).I’ve never done Lyft in foreground as I’ve heard (but never tested it so it could be wrong) Uber times out if It’s in background.
Good strategy...buying a monster after the dump... this way you are enjoying the monster more inside your body . You drink, then dump, monster not inside the bodyI live near the airport in Cleveland. I prefer to just sit in the rideshare lot and pick up incoming flight passengers. For example, today, I get off my main job at 4. Then I'll head straight to the airport, stop at the gas station, take a dump, buy a monster, then wait for a ping from the airport.
iPhone 5s here. Never ran into that problem must be incredibly annoying!I have an iPhone6+ ... I often run Uber & Lyft apps simultaneosly in background ... The only problem I get is when I receive a ping from both of them at the same time (rare, but it happens in busy areas).
The competing pings will lock-up my phone screen so that I'm unable to accept or decline the ping
from either app, so both pings then eventually time-out.
If there's any difference in clientele it's gonna be location specific. So any experiences members have had in one State, or even city/town, won't necessarily match others.
This. I've had times where I've had one or the other in the background depending on various things. For me it it mostly hinges on what works best to be able to quickly screen incoming pings from both.It makes no difference which one is in the foreground. Personal preference.
After a year of just UBER, I added LYFT a couple of weeks ago. I was surprised to find a distinct difference in clientele. On UBER a typical passenger is picked-up in a wealthy neighborhood of single family homes, and dropped-off at a bar or restaurant. On LYFT the typical passenger is picked-up after work at a bar or restaurant, and dropped-off at a subsidized-housing apartment complex. Some of those minimum wage workers live many miles from their jobs, and rack-up significant transportation costs for commuting via rideshare. I don't know why the class of riders would be so different, except perhaps that UBER somehow locked-in the wealthier customers(early adopters) before LYFT came along to pick-up leftovers. Just guessing. "Your mileage may vary".
