    This hasn’t happened in my region YET but it’s coming. Amazon is changing the way we accept blocks now. Seems we will have to swipe to accept a block. It will definitely slow us down.

    Has anyone’s region been affected yet and if so how bad does this new change suck?

    This change is actually good. It would make those hardware auto-clicker useless.

    Here in Atlanta the app refresh rate is very slow. It makes the apps and machines worthless. I agree they should have done this 2 years ago.

    Yea, this change stops auto clickers but it does f**k all to stop scripts which are way better than auto clickers anyway.

    Not really. They would just write algorithms to detect whether the screen was being touched by means of a swipe v tap

    Google maps (and Uber) already does this

    The difficulty is not about the swipe action. The difficulty lies the machine needs to know when to tap to refresh and when to swipe to accept an offer. Now it requires the machine to have vision and OCR to understand the text. And unlike tap, machine's swipe action normally is slower than human finger.

    I hate entering captchas on my porn sites but I've always thought that might be a good idea for the app.

    It's defiantly slowed me down. I'm use to tapping while doing something else. I'm finding I'm looking at the screen more.

    someone's going to get into a wreck accepting an instant offer, fortunately Amazon is too evil to care

    now it's back to accepting every offer, looking to see what it is, throwing it back - the most inefficient possible way of matching drivers with shifts

    some low-EQ intern probably put 5-10 seconds of thought into"solving" this "problem" first week of june

    this is the world we live in now, this is the techno dystopia - some rich f*ckup networks onto an AMZN internship, ruining lives out of stupidity, makes a giant mess, the new high-tech way of telling everyone to "eat sh*t"

    wow nothing changes, it's just toxicity instead of sh*t - raining down from above from anonymous sources - thanks anonymous AMZN a.i., thanks incompetent interns, thanks rich soulless foreign national devs who dont care about tech in the least and who are only interested in controlling people with it, thanks depraved east coast toxicity, constantly enabling all of this

    thanks

    Life is about adjustment. We will get use to the new setup.

    but it's not a new set up, this is back to the beginning

    back to re-routing everything to those who think the world only exists to deal with their toxicity

    they think being a f*ckup is a power move

    bet u didnt know that

    their darkest secret is that they are worse than mediocre

    bet they didnt know that
