Indriver should come up with a price per kilometer because most of the riders offer ridiculous fares which are not worth taking. If they don't come up with a fixed price per km people especially drivers will hate it instead of supporting it. It's running business down
I got a request as I arrived at Rocky road road in Yeoville, a guy walk towards the passenger side and showed me his phone as the rider. I opened my locked doors to allow him in and he said his girl mate is buying meal I must please wait, next thing another guy comes towards my side and as I looked to see who he was the guy seating on the front passenger side grabs my Huawei Friend 9 intelligent phone and ran away leaving the door open. This application is not safe. It is a scam e hailing application for thieves.
Im a driver for a while on this platform and its not worth it for me as my vehicle needs to be maintained and petrol is expensive in Cape City South Afrika. We need a set starting price for inDriver per km as clients are making rediculous offers and some drivers are accpeting thos rides and making it difficult for other drivers. We need that set price!!! Besides the fact that the customer chooses their price, what about the driver? what about maintenance, petrol and driver labour??? Its Utter selfish
I wouldn't recommend anyone to download or use this app. I had my phone stolen by a passenger on the 17th of June 2019, at 18:44. I went to the police station to begin a case of robbery and attempted hijacking. I requested indriver to provide me with the passengers details, of which they failed. This only means that drivers are not safe and are more prone to hijackings InDriver does not do a background check on its drivers so ANYONE can be your driver. This is a very risky and unsafe app.
i don't like the idea that the client chooses how much to pay for a ride,when you maintain the car, you don't choose how much to pay eg servic,fuel,tryes etc. you obtain charged full price. a vehicle is not cheap. actually a cab is not for those who cant afford it. it looks like you guys only think of riders only
this is one of the best application when it comes to payment rates .it gives you a possibility to negotiate your method .there must improve however on availability of drivers in some locations as you may be forced to wait long before you obtain a ride.
I've tried indrive but it looks like I'm just working for fuel coz the moment you test to negotiate a fair price trip is taken or rejected. Can't see the benefits of it yet. Totally different. Got cancelled when I had already driven to the client. At least test to create sure we obtain cash for fuel than just giving limited options where you drive for free using your vehicle for joy rides.
75% of drivers are unprofessional, cancel or simply do not present up. The application interface is also not intuitive, fluid or straightforward. After 2 months of regular use, nothing's improved and it seems the teething issues are actually the standard of service.
cheapest ride out. only missing the ability to use credit cards in Colombia. I hate fumbling around with change trying to pay and half the time the drivers act like they dont have change. you need a credit card option in Colombia like a lot of of your users are requesting. please listen.
Awesome concept ! crappy app, it has a lot faults that need to be resolved asap because they are messing with the process ! the other day it closed while I was still.waiting for a ride, then I waited a few.min thinking the ride I had originally requested up and it didn't so I got annoyed and requested a fresh one next thing I o cars. were infront.of me.! that wasn't amazing was ok to.disappoint someone like that. let for one profile to be used on multiple devices and let FAM
I had two extremely disappointing experiences with InDriver. I would not recommend anyone to use it. Totally unreliable service. I waited more than double the estimated arrival time and when I phoned the driver, he hasn't even left his zone yet. I ordered another driver, who also allow me wait more than double the time. I was already late by then. He complained about the fare. Then he still stopped to refuel. The final straw was when he kicked me out at the fuel station. Disaster!
Application is very user-friendly, even got some kind of safety button to send information to mate or police. You can share your live zone on route with friends/parents/someone other. Used the service for a colleague and discovered that I can track my ph(Using the app) and the car and the person I shared the link "for the route",could do the same. Very simple to use.
Hi ,I Used your services 3 times already ,which I really enjoyed ,because of your cheaper fare ,but may people have discouraged me ,because of the safety ,it's seems like while you ridding ,any other client an request the same vehicle ,if going same direction ,is that real ?an as well I heard that its difficult to trace drivers whenever something happened ,please allow me know if these allegations are real thanks
I've experienced a lot of drivers canceling lately, been caught in the rain a couple of times?? Not sure if all your drivers understand the app. A driver says he is 5 mins away and he is at least 10 mins away on the map, you phone him to check and he kills the call.
sometimes drivers demand more cash with no reason why, the control of the curriculum driver selection in this application is not good (you know some of them are smokers and addicts, the vehicles says all). I think U B E R and B E A T are better than this cause they have a flat rate and control every driver curriculum, I really use this application as my latest possibility to ride.
I was really satisfied.hope it remains the same... husband needs transport all the time. we were using taxfy but they're application was not good to install and update.every time we need services like ch b well done for the first service am ready to recommend to my family and mates right away!!
my driver was very friendly😍😍😍... but i think you need to present them our faces on the application so that they know who they are picking up.... it's ain't safe to present them just my name... hopefully u will work on that besides that everything is perfect👌👌👌
the drivers choose the time they will arrive at the pick up location. in most cases this tine is inaccurate. also ive experienced three drivers that arrived and as I was aproching the vehicle drove off and did not respond their phones even though I was within the 5 min leighway time
For years Mykel Board had wanted to go to Outer Mongolia. He realized that dream in 1995 when he went there to teach English at the National University in Ulaanbaatar. EVEN A DAUGHTER IS BETTER THAN NOTHING is the effect of his stay. This volume is not like any other travel writing you will read. It is at once hilarious, I suspect at times hyperbolic as well as downright moving in places. He writes with obvious affection for the people he encountered on his year there; and even though he lands in a country far removed from anything he has even encountered--"this is Mongolia"-- he is never lic transportion doesn't run on time, the plumbing doesn't work, classes are scheduled in the wrong classrooms, and signs saying someone takes credit cards usually don't mean that at all as Mr. Board repeatedly hears the mantra "this is Mongolia." What the writer does search is a lovable people not afraid of hard work and accepting of strangers. They dress up to have a image taken, are offended if you do not eat their food-- even though you prefer not to eat unadorned fat-- not good Mr. Board at times reminded me a small of Cool Hand Luke's stuffing himself with eggs in the film by the same name-- and can drink you under the table. These folks drink vodka like Americans drink Cokes. (I'm surprised that Mr. Board had a liver when he returned to Fresh York.) He also found "Pro Wrestling, rock'n'roll, Christianity, and probably someday soon, McDonalds." But apparently no designer coffee though Mr. Board describes himself as a amazing instructor-- and I believe him-- he on several occasions uses incorrect English, always making the same grammatical error: "He wimps out, leaving Sebastian and I stranded" (p. 270) is incorrect. The sentence should read "leaving Sebastian and ME stranded" But you'll search much weirder items here. How about half a page of info on Mongolians as "snot-blowers"? Finally you'll read a long time before another travel writer refers to Peter North. (Oops. I'm not supposed to know that he is a popular star.)For those of us who will never go to Mongolia, Mr. Board has created a part of the globe come alive, reminding us once again that all of us are more alike than we are different.Oh, about the title-- the author says that he wanted something catchy to obtain the reader's attention-- he is most successful-- but explains that the expression is an old proverb that has small to do with modern Mongolia.
Cover to cover, Mykels book pushes the reader on and on. Excitement and surprise on every page. A lot of of those who have traveled to exotic countries will relate to his book of adventure and English teaching in Mongolia. From the begin Mykel seems at odds with his environment, not unlike anyone of us who has been there, or somewhere similar. Amazing wit and humour in Mykles diary of a year teaching and 'living' in Mongolia is also compressed with the stark loneliness and isolation of this very foriegn country and its reamarkable people. A book to keep, and read over and over again.
One of the a lot of pleasures this book offers is the author's voice: as bemused with himself and his own foibles as he is with the unusual globe he shares with us, he relates his adventures without a shred of self-serving narcissism, jumping into Mongolian life with omniverous curiosity and steady generosity. The chapter on Hilary Clinton's visit to Outer Mongolia as First Lady is particularly priceless (in which Clinton's Secret Service handlers assume that Mykel, who is just hanging around the gate, must be in charge of access to the embasy).
Well, nobody could say that Mykel Board isn't full of life ! Whoa ! A very interesting guy, ready to test anything, not turning up his nose at anything. Whether it's eating dozens of lamb fat, dealing with exploding radiators, grokking the amazing outdoors by a lake in the heart of Asia, or riding horseback through Mongolian steppes ( not to mention hanging out with punk rockers and wannabe pro wrestlers), Mykel is there. I suspect I'd like him a lot. He's not always trying to present himself in the best light, that's for sure. But being a amazing guy doesn't mean you write a amazing book about Mongolia.OK, maybe it's his adopted writing style. "How I got stuck into Mongolia" (in more ways than one) with the accent on "I". Look at what happened to me !...all this crap I had to place up with....I couldn't obtain no satisfaction....but the people were, like, so amazing (though they remain completely overshadowed by dear old moi.) Mykel seems to have had a lot of writing experience, though I'd never heard of him before buying his book. (Yeah, I didn't steal it.) Mongolia in the `90s was wrecked. The Russians had pulled out, stopped paying for stuff, and the put beautiful near collapsed. It was a post-Soviet wreckage state. "This is Mongolia."---the mantra of the book---is not so accurate then. It wasn't so much being Mongolia, but being a post-Soviet country. But Mykel avoids serious stuff. Mongolia sprang full-blown from the earth the day he arrived. Existential country. Oh, man, how my guts felt, oh man, how my butt felt after all day on a horse, oh man, I was so wasted after that party, damn, I was so miserable for 56 hours in that little corner of a clapped out Mongolian truck, wow, all these con men ripping me off....on and on. A amazing read, I agree, but this is not a book about Mongolia, it's a book about Mykel Board IN Mongolia. If it didn't happen to him, it didn't happen. And then too, Hyberbole is his middle name. I don't know if I trust all these tales, but I did have fun them. Editing is not the powerful suit of Garrett County Press, I suspect----way too a lot of typos. And though Mykel derides CNN for its lousy, simplistic maps (right on !), he doesn't place one in at all. What can I say ? If you're looking for an enjoyable book about an American would-be youth in a faroff country, this is just the ticket. If you wish a book with any kind of perspective about Mongolia, test someplace else.
This is an incredibly hilarious and educational adventure at the far frontiers of modern culture. Author Board really does place you right there in the middle of this strange country, and he does so with a dry yet frantic wit and a sincere fondness for this ancient land and its people. This is a book full of adventure and surprise and humor from a writer who is a cross between Davy Crockett and Oscar Wilde! Wonderfully entertaining.
Mykel Board -- punk rocker, Fresh Yorker, gonzo provocateur -- fulfills a lifetime dream by moving to Mongolia for one year to teach English...and I'm so glad he did. His easy-to-read writing style is brutally honest and hysterically funny, from his issues overcoming constipation (because Metamucil is not sold in Outer Mongolia, Board resorts to consuming rancid road meal to encourage diarrhea), to his visits to Mongolian dance clubs, to the confusing hurdles presented in this post-Soviet limbo land ("Welcome to Mongolia!" is the standard response from natives when cultural idiosyncracies are brought to attention). Unlike most travel memoirs, there are no overwrought or pretentious yses of a foreign culture -- even though there were times that I, a fellow traveler, longed for Mykel to take a deeper look at this rarely examined country -- making this book a fun, unrestrained ride through a remote, Kafka-esque kingdom. Buy this book.
A nice and simple read. If you're a fan of his Columns in Maximum Rock n Roll, you'll love it! Had me chuckling on the commute to work for a couple of days(only a couple though, as its not the longest book).I'd recommend it for those who wish something light-hearted and entertaing, it definitely got me out of the doldrums!
My expectations were not too high but I am surprised. If one is looking for a history of Mongolia -there might be other books that will give you a background of the country and its people-may I suggest going to a library. If you are familiar with his work, one will have fun this book. His style and stories remind me of "No Reservations and "Weird Foods". He writes candidly about his drinking, eating, and cultural experiences. The best stories are about him meeting the Mongolian metal band"Hurd" and his experiences teaching. Since the book is about his experiences, this book is about how Mykel Board perceives Mongolia. The book is an enjoyable read and will be re-read.
A very well written story, but the title is misleading. As much as I have fun this authors stories, after a few books, the stories of this genre all seem similar. And that’s very unfortunate, even tho I do realize this is a very limited topic. The story could have expanded a bit, it just kinda ended. Nobody enjoys a one and done.
I loved this book! It is a book about relationships in the globe of basketball but I wouldn't call it a sports book. It's also about travel with a lot of ideas on amazing locations to visit that you normally would pass up. Pat is a very funny story teller in his dealings with the players and owners of these teams. If you like to learn a small geography, smile and laugh a lot and cry a wee bit, you will love it too!
Pat Stewart's book was down right fun reading. This is the second book I have read, written by Pat Stewart and his humor is exceptional. His stories about his travels and exploits around the world are both hilarious and thought provoking at the same time. I am envious of the life he has lead all who read this book will come away entertained.
Arthur Plotnik's recent book for words people, Better Than Great, is a sizzling success. Short, punchy and unparalleled, this slender volume is amazing company for two of his previous writers' necessities, The Elements of Expression and Spunk and Bite. BTG is meant to be a handy reference to grab when a writer needs an expressive adjective, something other than the used-to-death "great." I wished the announcer on a recently-televised NFL android game had had a copy of BTG on hand as he blithely characterized the Packers as "a amazing squad with amazing owners in a amazing town with amazing fans."Although the book is meant for occasional reference, I read it from beginning to end--it's that mesmerizing. The five appendices are an especially fecund resource, notably Appendix 5, which gives us a starter set of alternatives to tired old terms. Among my favorites are: raveworthy, avalanchine, ungluing, gobsmacking and both-barrels mind-blasting. Mr. Plotnik, URTM (per Appendix 2 on texting acclaim: You are the man).
Peyton Put exists in upper Oregon. If it is not a murder, if it is not a mom lusting after her step son or a mom who gets tired of the whole business. This particular witch author has work chop out for herself when she finds that the initials she carved into the tree is now the sheriff! Enjoy!
