Lyft - Taxi & Bus App Alternative app review



Lyft helps you find a reliable and most importantly safe ride to get you to your destination. This app is featured in our list of the Best taxi apps for the iPhone

The best taxi apps for iPhone

If you're looking for a way to travel around the city this app gives you a great option. You can make use of the Lyft community drivers to get you to your destination in a safe, friendly, and affordable way. Not to worry, all the drivers have to go through a personality screening and a background check so you know you're getting the best quality driver.

The app is available in Los Angeles and San Francisco at this time but is working to expand to more cities.

In order to use the app you'll need to log in with Facebook. Next enter in your pickup location and then simply request a Lyft. Once you reach your destination you are asked to rate your driver and make a donation. Once you request the lift you'll be given information such as the name of the driver, the car he or she will arrive in, and how many minutes it will be until your ride arrives.


The reason Lyft uses your Facebook login is for security purposes to maintain a trusted "peer-to-peer community" that also maintains your privacy.

Lyft was updated on Apr. 1, 2013 and currently has 20 customer ratings with an average rating of four out of five stars.

This makes finding a ride very easy and quick. I liked that you could then rate your driver when you finished so you could award them for such great service.

For: iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation), and iPad with iOS 5.0 or later
