Hello all. i was thinking, see if any of you agree here. All to often, we read the updates, deciding whether or not to update an app. If you have auto updates on, you probably just deal with accessibility issues, or write the developers, or perhaps post here or other groups to comiserate with others. I am giving you a new theory, blaming the developers for lackluster descriptions. Let me give two examples, although there are many more. Lyft, the taxi and bus alternative
For version after version, we are greeted with the same bland description. "We update the app every two weeks. Update to the latest version so you can enjoy using the app," or some blend of the text I have quoted. I was outside of a hospital recent, late at night, needing a ride home. I called a Lyft, not using them before, they were the faster of the two. Note I do not put one app better or faster in any case, I just mean time wise. So i get the name of John doe, will arrive. My phone never rang, yet it showed me he called. Consequently I was charged a five dollar no show. I was in the main entrance of the hospital, with witnesses that saw the person drive by. I called Uber, within minutes I was safely riding home. i contact Lyft, they tell me sorry, refund my money. I helpfuly suggest they tell users what model of vehicle or the tag number, as without that information, I was unable to procure assistance in flagging the jerk down. The Lyft support person urged me she would recommend my feedback, yet on wednesday of last week, the same copy paste method of deescription was given. I updated, I have no faith my concerns were met with anything other then pressing the "Delete," key.
Roger, i have posted about the battery issue, an hour ago, the update was live. Again, roger simply spit up, the use Roger with Siri, use Siri use our three D touch menu, and the widgits. Absolutely nowhere is it mentioned we did hear you, we fixed the issue. This was supposedly fixed, but because they couldn't take the time to do anything other then vomit up the canned response, how are we supposed to realize anything we want whether trivial or a major accessibility flaw has been fixed? i'm not blaming us, for the downloading of apps, I'm blaming us for being sucked into the vortex of the we just put the update up, so download it or not, your choice, attitude some companies have. Amazon kind of does this behavior, facebook and Messenger I can assure you all do. Oh, Uber does to some extent, though I have seen a little more forethought. So i'm curious, when you read the canned responses, how may take the flying leap to download the app, only to be either surprised, or wish you'd stayed on that version you liked? Just food for thought.
