Sidecar which was first with many ridesharing features could not keep up with uber and lyft and has morphed into a delivery service.
I had problems with my first ride with uber. When I tried the uber app on my iPhone it opened up with a blue screen with the uber logo in the middle. No matter what I tried I couldn't get out of that, so I went to www.uber.com on my laptop. It gave me a window with three choices Ride, Drive, Become a Driver. When I clicked on ride it gave me another window with "become a driver" and "Sign up". I tried to sign up it said I was already signed up.
Somehow I can't remember what I did I got a phone number for a local driver, so I texted him and ask him what the rate was. He said he didn't know what the rate was uber calculated that automatically. I eventually went with him and after we got to the airport he was able to get a rate $20 which was about 1/2 what an airport van service wanted to charge me.
Since I couldn't get to the app I didn't get my $20 promo discount for the first ride. I found a promo code "cws7s2" online and will try that next time.
The next time I went to the uber app it gave me a popup to rate my last ride. I couldn't get rid of it and when I touched the rate driver button nothing happened. I quit and reopened the app this time it gave me a map showing my location across the street. The destination field was partially overlaid by my location, but when I entered the airport it labeled at home ?? and ordered a car with no button to cancel.
