Comments and Reviews from users:

Manders: “recently AA has been freezing a lot. it doesn't matter how long I've been driving, but during every drive it will freeze. everything stops working. I physically have to turn my car off, unplug my phone get out and lock my doors for a few kins before getting back in and having everything work. it's frustrating when you are using it for navigation.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Harrison Bautista (Totally_not_tot): “Great when it works and it works 90% of the time (cord in or otherwise) but when it's connected by Bluetooth while it's plugged in it upsets me because It won't switch when the connection gets unstable or I'll ry and push the button to activate it in my car at it will just load endlessly and stop for no explanation. Aside from my connection issues this does allow me to see where I need to go and listen to my favorite music, so when it works, it's worth it :)” – 3/5 in Play Store

Patrice Peeples: “I've read the reviews, and yet and still, decided to try it out for my own experience. It's exactly as the consumers described so far! I didn't even mean to rate the app yet, but it made me press it before the race. I think I'm just starting a race holding the screen as it prompts and a rate button appeared convenientlyunder my thumb. Cool so far but definitely too easy as described in the contents I've read. ⭐⭐⭐'s well see if that changes later...” – 3/5 in Play Store

Amber Animations: “I give this game a 10 out of 10! Aside from the annoying ads popping up every time, 😒 I enjoy the levels, races, and tracks in here! I have a lot of fun playing this game.

Comments and Reviews from users:

PrideCraft: “Amazing app,I used to love this app, it was my go to app for RTO info. But, giving 3 stars because first of all the app shows way too many ads, ok, but at least the ad should not interrupt me from looking up info. I won't mind banner ads at all but there should not be a whole screen of ads before I can look up a num. eg if I have to check a num plate first I gottawait 5 seconds for an unskippable ad to end. Second and the most ridiculous downgrade is they started censoring car owner names.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Akash Vats: “UI is excellent. There were less advertisements before the update and also the complete name of the owner was displayed with the RC information. Now they put asterisk in place of the full name. That is my only qualm/complain with this application. Otherwise it is an excellent application. It also gives you a reminder once your car insurance is about to expire. Only because of the incomplete name i rated it 4/5. Just revert to the old version where the name of the car owner was displayed.” – 4/5 in Play Store

red wine: “I search for electric cars and they don't know that the most important characteristic of those is battery capacity and second, the presence or absence of a heat pump. So, exactly these two characteristics are missing in descriptions. I've noticed them about that, but it seems it's too hard to understand.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Mike Pitts: “OK, what idiot made this app useless with the last update...clear cache, clear data, force stop, uninstall/reinstall....nothing worked to allow the map function to work & it no longer gives you details on whichever station you press on....never had an issue in all the years I've used it....the developers/programmers effectively bricked the darn app with this last update...no worries though Google Maps came to the rescue 🙄 Edit : it's running correctly for now, will move from 1 star to 3.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Ron J: “Can't even begin the list the things that are wrong with this app. It used to be good until about a year ago and when they had to mess things up that's when everything's went bad. It takes forever for it to open and then everything just hangs and then there are times when it just hangs not good. Half the time you pull into the stations and the prices you post will not post.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Gamer: “GPS system maybe off location a bit. Showed one of my trips on the wrong road going right though a couple of houses. Eats through battery power even when your not on the road. You may have to use battery saver to keep your phone from dying and then you will get a message to reverify your phone number every time you use it. My battery has died many times while I was working because they kept getting my location. If your phone is slow it's probably this app tracking you even when you're not moving” – 2/5 in Play Store

neil jensen: “I've been using this app for a discount. Two things I have noticed about this app are: 1, the hard breaking is very odd. I have put it to the test. I have intentionally broken hard, and it didn't register as hard breaking; but then it would register hard breaking for no reason. Maybe the phone sliding around in the console causes it. 2, phone usage: I'll be in a parking lot using my phone, parked, hang up and drive, and the app will dock me for phone usage. I believe the app lags in this issue.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Cons The Progressive app has been known to crash or freeze, and some users have reported issues with the app's user interface.

Comments and Reviews from users:

Gian Fabian: “I'm using this app mostly for Snapshot, and it was off to a great start at first. As of late, it's become selective of when it lets me modify a trip where I was the passenger or driver. In other words, I could've been the passenger, but it tracks me as the driver and won't let me change it otherwise. This isn't for every trip, stangely enough, but it definitely should be fixed.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Chad Spradling: “The Snapshot feature is a safety issue. It incentivizes breaking less, and now I second guess myself when I do require hard braking to avoid collisions. It also doesn't give you a chance to justify the false reports it gives, like it saying the driver used their phone if the passenger actually used their phone or if hard braking was used in the course of defensive driving to avoid a collision. It also doesn't let you go back very far in its history to change when you're a passenger.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “Tried a whole bunch of these car scanner apps. This is by far the best. If you have an ELM code reader device, this is the software to get. The basic free app will work for most people. For a minor cost for the pro version you unlock additional useful monitoring parameters. Developers: I can set the guage boundaries for the dial type display but not on the graph display. It would be nice to be able to set the min and Max values on the graph displays as well.” – 4/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “This is the best obd2 scanning app possible, the amount of information is superb. While being laid out in an organized user friendly experience. There's the stuff for novices and a Experts here. Some people have given a one star due to the app not connecting to the scanner, but all you have to die is turn off mobile data. Then turn back on mobile data and everything will work fine after it is paired” – 5/5 in Play Store

Mari Hobson: “This app is extremely glitchy. I keep getting a "We're having technical issues" messages, renders this app as useless. The only thing it's good for is looking up the insurance card. *Update from 1 to 4 stars* The app seems to be improved and is less glitchy.

Comments and Reviews from users:

Drew: “Turo provides a great service. The app was a little buggy but it worked. I would suggest differentiating yourself from the legacy car rental companies and display total cost when customers are scrolling through choices. Nobody enjoys arriving at the final checkout page and being greeted by a significantly higher amount than they'd been expecting.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Michał Lisicki: “The app forced me to check in at the time the trip was supposed to start and then there was no way to buy additional insurance anymore. When I called in to fix it, the customer service basically told me that "when they click it, it doesn't change." and wouldn't let me speak to another department. Very unhelpful. So I did the trip on minimal insurance. Fortunately there were no issues but I felt uncomfortable.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Courtney Ebron: “This app is so annoying sometimes. I love that I can open it and see what my Blazer EV's charge percentage is...but that's when it works. Takes way too long to load and sometimes won't load at all. It's also annoying that, eventually, I'll have to pay to access the app and I don't get features like being able to turn on the AC remotely. Sure, I can set the auto climate controls to turn on in the car's settings, but it'd be nice to have that feature in the app. Too buggy right now.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Joshua Lackey: “Was great until they broke the map function so that it never finds anything in a search. The most useful feature was the ability to send directions to the navigation in the car, but at this point, the map is pretty much worthless. EDIT Actually, uninstall the app and reinstall it, and it seems there was an update I was not getting. My map function works again. Changing my star rating. Now, if only they would add some useful car apps to the slightly older 2020 models like audible.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Joe Adamich: “Great app, great people. The processing upon pick up of a vehicle is a little difficult but its understandably so. The site is a little harder to navigate than the app. Also it seemed like a week ago all the lots on the website even with a filter of "no license required" in featured items filters the search result still popped up any vehicle including license required. There were several that I was not able to bid on due to that fact and it was very frustrating so I turned to the app it worked” – 3/5 in Play Store

brian pederson: “App is great in so many ways, however.... when clicking on to a live virtual auction, I have never seen anything so obnoxious and annoying than that awful music and announcer dude during the sale. The mute buttons are a nice option, but strategically placed on near the bid button is an unbelievably bad design. Fix one or more of these, and this thing rocks.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “Drivvo is a great car management and logging app. I've been using the app for well over a year and have even bought the pro version for backups. However, my only gripe on easy of use is that the odometer input defaults to zero if the screen is turned off. This zero then needs to be manually deleted in order to add your milage without an extra zero.” – 4/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “I liked the app in the beginning because I thought it had what I needed - the ability to track fuel-ups, services, and track multiple cars. But when I wanted to log all the reminders from my car's suggested maintenance plan, I realized that the services you can set reminders for are very limited. Seeing as that's one of the main reasons why I downloaded this, I'm going with carfax's app - it automatically reminds you and already has your car's maintenance recommendations.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Mike Jurgensen: “The app has become incredibly buggy after latest update. 9 times out of 10 it will not connect to my car... It just gets caught in an eternal loop "last seen xx minutes ago". *Edit*. *Edit* I discovered that my garage has less than adequate wi-fi signal. While it was technically connected to my home Wi-Fi, it wasn't a strong enough signal to allow communication to the app. I removed my home network completely from the car and it began working immediately.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Jim G: “I would like to suggest an option be added to the Scheduled Departure function. Currently one can schedule a departure time for either "All week"or "Weekdays". I would like to see a button added for "One time". There have been a number of times that I've set a departure time that I expect to use only once, and then forgot turn it off. Until I notice it, the car will unnecessarily pre-condition itself at that time every day.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Larry Kovacs: “If you're one requiring instant gratification, this isn't for you. It took 2+ weeks from the time I triggered the transaction for the vehicle to be delived and worse yet, around 3 months for regisyration & title (although, I'm sure covid had a part in that). On a brighter note, the vehicle arrived in near perfect condition, better than I had expected. It's quite a leap of faith to buy a big $ car sight unseen, but other than the lag time to complete a cash transaction, it was an OK experience.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Jessica M: “I think this might be a great way to buy a car, if the filters actually worked & saved your preferences, and not only on the filters, but everything else. Everytime you look at a car you have to sign back in &, if they allow you, reset your filters. Oh, & don't click on the ❤ thinking it's going to save your choice; all it does is trigger a purchase. It's really a shame, this could be so helpful & has a lot of potential.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Lisa Hansen: “Frustrating rewards system. The app seems ok. Not all chevron stations participate in rewards. Even when you choose to drive to one that says it does rewards on app, you can get to the station & it'll tell you the rewards system isn't active. Purchases at stations that don't participate don't count towards anything. So if you have a "fuel up 3 times to get x" type of promotion, it won't count if you're at the wrong station. You have to plan well AND do trial & error. It's underwhelming.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Hope Osborne: “The instructions in the app to save $1/gallon are extremely vague. Do not activate offer until you are at the station. Even then, the app does not recognize you are at a station. I had to get help from the attendant to use the stupid thing. However, I did save $1/gallon, so I'm pretty happy with that. It was a very aggravating experience, but worth the extra effort with gas prices these days. Thx, Mr. "president"!” – 3/5 in Play Store

Labrn Mystic: “It's more annoying than using EVgo or simply a credit card. Helpful for finding them, but then I sit there going back and forth five times with this damn app just trying to RFID into the charging station to use it. Constantly getting "Not authorized" only to find the app logged me out and I have to keep logging in, reselecting the location I'm at, holding my phone to the thing, sometimes unplugging and plugging my car back in. If you want us to convert to electric, you people need to fix this!” – 3/5 in Play Store

Kevin Tran: “Shocking reliability! No pun intended. Whenever trying to start a session remotely, I stand there waiting for the cable to unlock for a couple minutes, then I go and grab my phone to tap the charge. It unlocks straightaway, then a few minutes later there's an error saying it failed to start because it might be in use.. yeah... BY ME. 5+ minutes to initiate a charge session remotely via app? Get it together, ChargePoint, I'm getting sick of your Scheiße.” – 2/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “This is the best Car Launcher I have found to date. The ability to customize the screens, widget locations and size are amazing! I was the guy that wrote the DigitalFX skin for RoadRunner back in the day, and this is the closest that I have gotten to a CarPC customizability. Couple things in the wish list: More widgets, a bar style equalizer with adjustable transparency (The oscilloscope style one included really isn't that great, sorry) Lastly, you NEED to make a portrait layout option. I have to use an app to force portrait mode to trick this launcher to display vertically on the screen. All newer tablet installs in cars, both factory and custom, have gone to the portrait layout.” – 5/5 in Play Store

James Weber: “I've been using this for my Joying head unit in a Mitsubishi Lancer for a few months now, and I love it! I wouldn't use it for phone at all, but only for an Android head unit. There is a learning curve for customization, but think if I really sat down and messed with it a bit longer it would be everything I need. However, as of now I'm very happy with the simplistic look and easy to use interface(once it has been customized).” – 4/5 in Play Store
