    I'm sure it'll be a good thing for the drivers. Lol

    Upon initial review and still framing the video it looks like the app will auto coordinate the pickup location (so no more wrong location pickups) and all one has todo as a Rider is enter the destination then they can see a vehicle and a price. (obviously they removed the surge notification as planned and riders will now accept a dollar amount instead.) additionally it looks like the rider will be able to remotely control the pandora app on the drivers phone via the rider app, if you signed up for that. Also it looks like the pickup will include details from the rider like the name of the restaurant/etc.

    I see this (see screenshots). Don't these new features look like a good way to confuse pickups even more? How many drunk pax will know where to walk or want to, and putting an extra degree of separation? Both are just asking for issues.

    I noticed that if you don't fanagle the app you'll be under the impression that you can't change your "current location" or that you can't input an address, which you can. I foresee a lot of rider no show cancelations. ;-)
