Just looked at auto switching apps in the Google play store. Mystro does not appear to be listed any more.
Can someone else confirm?

Could only find Ride Companion, Qrad and Maxymo. Any others?

Currently happy with Qrad, but my free trial period will eventually run out.

Ha. That may be explains it! Reading what woodywho posted above, it looks like Mystro has been pulled from the Google play store and is now available only at their website. If that is the case, mystery solved.

Wonder why they would do that, though - play store would be the best distribution channel for droid apps. I would never download any app from other than Apple app store or Google Play store - but that is purely a personal decision (too scared of viruses).

Because it costs companies money to have their apps on there?

AFAIK, it does not cost anything to publish apps in the apple play store or google play store, unless you are purchasing the app from the store itself.
The sellers of apps pay a percentage of the app, and in app purchases. This continues pretty much indefinitely as long as the source of the DL was from the app store.

By selling through their website exclusively, even though they became well known on the app store originally, they eliminate that overhead and can either, A) reduce the price...hahahahah , or , B) keep the extra money they make for themselves...

Google has been pushing out new rules for the last year which affect automation apps. Mainly with restricting privileges and the accessibility services (which these automation apps often use). I can't say for sure this is the reason for it not being there but I would strongly suspect it.

Lyft is blocking 3rd party apps from using their software.

You have to "Side download" it to your phone from their website.

Go directly to the Mystro website and download the .apk there.

Google takes a percentage for processing the transaction irregardless if it's on they play store or not.

They may have gotten pulled for play store violations for using prohibited API's or billing practices. They are required to give refunds if there product is faulty. They refused in many cases.

They didn't pull the app themselves, they got pulled by Google. If they pulled the spp, following a link would still display the listing. It doesn't, there app was suspended likely.

I am cancelling Mystro the app. Too unreliable with Lyft. I have had to reinstall it several times over a month. Uber and especially Lyft should just provide an api for 3rd party apps like Mystro to use.

@Omega 3 have you tried the others? I have had good experience with qrad for a while now. Not perfect, mind you, just more reliable (at present).
Like you said, all these apps seems to break to various degrees when Uber and Lyft update their apps. Could not agree with you more on Uber and Lyft providing reliable APIs - but I am sure they hate to have a third party app monitor or control their apps, and so this is extremely unlikely to happen IMO.

I see no reason why they would not want their app to be not in the play store (it is the main distribution channel for android apps) - so what you are saying is likely - that Google suspended it for violating play store terms of service.

Google is cracking down on policies and violations. They just suspended one of there largest app publishers for violations. I'd be willing to bet mystro was suspended for some type of violation. It probably had something to do with them requesting you to download the app from their website to get working updates. Google strictly prohibits this. I had an app that updated itself by downloading the apk from my web server. Shortly after I implemented this my app was suspended.

There billing practices are pretty shady to according to the reviews and there responses.

I think mystro and the other similar apps are cool and helpful, I just don't understand the claims it will make you more money either. Which is likely another play store violation. All these apps do is ignore requests that don't need certain criteria. They don't prevent requests, they can't do that. They read the screen and decide if the accept button should be automatically pressed.

Just my two cents... ?

Mystro has been removed from the Play Store to remain compatible with Lyft. Please visit the https://mystrodriver.com/ to download the latest version.

By driving for Uber and Lyft at the same time, you stay busier thus make more money. Mystro, when it works, accepts the first ride request that comes in and closes the other app automatically. It is intended to be used if you use only one device to wait for requests from Uber and Lyft at the same time.

Ok I will ask the extremely obvious question - how does Mystro being removed from play store help make it compatible with Lyft?
