  • Works Well

    By BryGuy80
    App does what it should. Tracks mileage and expenses for easy reference and print out for tax filing. App connects with Uber app to track distance, expenses, and revenues. Quick and easy set up. Would like to see it include Hot Spots, Bonuses, and Surges, otherwise it would have been 5 stars.
  • Lousy

    By FastMazz
    Lousy support doesn't reply to repeated emails for help. I still have not heard back from support. It says permissions not set for Facebook use. I've repeatedly tried contact rydar and all I get is thank you will contact you in 24 hours. I need help please!

  • App doesn’t work.

    By J. Walker Jr.
    This app doesn’t work as advertised. Uber now has a flat rate surge payout. This app doesn’t even show surges at all. Only suggested hotspots based on other drivers statistics. I now question that seriously seeing how the warriors game just ended in oakland and it’s currently surging at $8 and so is Oakland Airport, but this app says nothing’s happening right now. I’ve been trying different settings and changing everything I can think of and find as far as parameters go. Nothing has made a difference. I’m contacting Apple tomorrow to request a refund of my 1 year subscription. Update: Just found out there’s a newer version of this app. There definitely should be more advertisement for the new app as well as a notification on the old one. Possibly maybe even remove the old app from the App Store seeing as how now there’s a new app......what’s the use of keeping the old one around?
  • Broken app

    By raypugh07
    Wait area feature doesn’t work anymore.
  • Broken App

    By Dodgerfred
    I paid for premium just in time for the wait time location feature to stop working. Well played, Rydar. I want my money back, but I know that’s a pipe dream. I will just unsubscribe when the year is up. Unreliable and a waste of my money.
  • Waisting money

    By uber shin
    I have no idea what is this app I thought it can help at first
  • This app is not working as it should :-(

    By Haitian_Ricot
    I paid monthly subscription for this app. I noticed they’re some crazy surge prices going on nearby me all the time the app never show it nor notified me. I am in Colorado Springs. It’s a waste of money if you purchase it.
  • Value

    By Perry in Rochester
    I was going to delete this app at the beginning of this year, then suddenly it started doing exactly what I knew the potential of it should do. After making my personal adjustments, I cannot work without it. Provides money making opportunity, mileage, expense. It only wish it could take picture of my receipts!! Still keeping it but I like my suggestion.
  • No way

    By hgunders
    This app wants someone to pay a premium amount?? I’d rather put a dollar in a shredder. App won’t connect to Uber, nowhere in the app can you connect any other driver account for LYFT or any other ride share co. and it’s time consuming trying to figure out how to crack the code. 🙄. To set up Uber account it wanted me to change my Uber password...ugh. No. Then it still wouldn’t work and connects you to Uber help which they tell you to take screen shots of your phone number?? 🤔. Super intrusive and I wouldn’t waste time trying to figure this out if you are.
  • Worked better before I paid

    By Scuba_Sue32
    The two week trial was great, but now that I’ve paid it can’t find ANY hot spots within a 30 mile radius of me.
  • Terrible

    By mikestur
    App doesn’t perform the function you think it will. Pay $9 per month and they hope you forget you have it. Do not buy the service it doesn’t work
  • App is dead

    By Henronavy
    Needs to updated to reflect flat rate surge.
  • Used to be great

    By Mystra627
    Rydar used to be a perfect tool. Now it won't even open, it crashes at the loading screen. I keep it on my phone in hopes of an update but after seven months I think it's time to go.
  • Radar

    By nfruberdrivrr
    Terrible dont pay for this junk this is the worst crap ever. Asking for $$$ cash at each miserable step and never getting any usage worth a praise
  • Doesnt work as advertised

    By Sai 803
    I never get notifications when the surge is in my area after I paid for the premium subscription. I’ve tried reaching out to them but the only form of contact is thru email. Which could take days to weeks for a response. I’m currently being charge for something I don’t want or need as of now it’s useless!! Help!!!
  • perfect

    By swister1142
    a requirement if goal = efficient resourceful uber driver...100% not in question
  • Needs updating but good app and worth it

    By JimmyZ123
    Needs a little updating. Would like to see the expense app updated and have the ability to take pics of receipts. Also many times the default is personal for milage and I have to go back in a change them to business. Need a better or faster way to pick business or personal for mileage tracker. Over hall good app and it works just fine. I think over time with updates and it will be a five star hands down
  • Not Great!!! Should be more information updated in real time

    By benpaul35
    Should be updated!!!
  • Totally useless

    By jj58225
    Save your money. Doesn’t incorporate Lyft, doesn’t show routes, the only thing useful it does is alert you to surge opportunities, but I’ve never benefited from that.
  • Get this app

    By trying to be greedy
    Awesome app and very convenient for all drivers
  • Uber

    By Difunto
    So far, so good.
  • Greedy developers

    By Ann-oi-Ed
    So basically this app charges already underpaid drivers who are hustling for a living right out of their last few dollars to provide info that neither helps nor improves the drivers experience. Shame on these developers for producing this project.
  • Surge alerts not working

    By MarcoStifler
    I’ve emailed them already about this and went through the entire troubleshooting checklist but the app still does not send surge notifications. That’s why I subscribed because, the surge notification feature. I even deleted the app and installed again, checked all the notification settings on. Y phone and the app itself.
  • App

    By rick0378
    Had trouble seeing the fairs and now I’m not able to cash out. This app is a nightmare
  • Nice work

    By Lloyd Hinds
    I won't say much but this product is a gold mine if used appropriately. Nice work 👍🏿 So how do you counteract Uber’s new undated app; gives routes to better pickup locations etc?
  • Rydar

    By Greatbend@ks96
    Only good for me is tells me about events I had it shut down many times it’s not showing weeks of expenses I sent to customer support they are so jacked up not understanding anything I say there are more bad things to report
  • Doesn’t work

    By rogers3598
    Continues to lock up my phone. Will not show me subscription pricing.
  • I am not seeing the benefit

    By Lennys26
    I have an app for mileage tracking and was expecting this app to show me the busy areas and/or a map of expected surge based on historic data. All this app seems to do is show me where the bars and restaurants are and where any ‘events’ are taking place. Based only on that info it seems to determine that I should ‘go there.’ Um...no kidding! THAT is not added intelligence but just normal logic. Perhaps for a new driver who does not know the area, or for a big city with lots of events this could be useful, but for me, it is just the info that I already know. Nothing beneficial here. Deleting app.
  • App not accurate

    By smhx2
    Currently at a fair that draws 18k people and the app says there are no big events near by...smh.
  • Ubereats

    By apretty_flowwer
    Does this app works for ubereats?
  • Not good

    By cantevenpickanickname
    Didn’t care for this app, it didn’t tell me anything I didn’t know. Waste of money
  • Eeh

    By alysouth77
    Not very helpful. Notifications rarely work although it’s set properly. Will try another month and cancel if it doesn’t improve
  • This app is pointless

    By NinaMonroe_xoxo
    This app is stupid, and tells you absolutely nothing. This app should be taken down.
  • They Stopped “At Home” Notifications

    By Mrdestre
    This app used to be great. It used to notify me when there was surge all over from the comfort of my own home. Now they apparently changed that feature without telling their paying customers or sending out a survey to see what we thought if it. There’s literally a notification button people can toggle off if they didn’t want notifications all day. It’s wrong seeing as I paid for this and they changed it. If they revert to the old method I’d happily give 5 stars but this change makes making money difficult all over again. They claim it only sends notifications if your location changes within 15 min. I have yet to receive any since they made the change and yes I know how the app works, I’m tech savvy and have all the settings correct and even when there’s surge when I’m working it doesn’t notify me. Rydar have you heard of the saying if it’s not broke don’t fix it???

  • Didn’t get the hands on time needed

    By meOmy
    Trial should be based on days of usage not days since installed. I never got to really try it out much. I did notice that it only does Uber-X. It needs to have options to include Uber Select and Black. Also, many of us do both Uber and Lyft so keeping track of expenses at the premium price not very encouraging.
  • Doesn’t work in small cities

    By fmalop
    Not ideal for smaller cities. Not too small though 359,000 isn’t small .
  • I see NO reason to use this app!

    By Barrann55
    I didn’t find this app any useful. May be for me, but I think there is no reason to use this app.
  • 5 stars overall

    By rydarreviewer
    The notification need to know when you are in the middle of a ride and when you are not. Overall better integration with uber app is better. The rest is very good. Thank you for such a great app.
  • Doesn’t Work

    By jshou1
    Wait Point locator worked the first day I used the app. Never worked again after the first day. I’m in a major metropolitan area and the app consistently says their are zero (0) wait points within 30 miles of me. No response from tech support.

  • Feedback

    By MossHead
    No help at all been wasting gas and no rides in 2 hrs. I just purchased pro which said I would have tracker now it’s saying I need premium. That is bait and switch totally against the law!!! I will be requesting a full refund as well as calling the BBB and the attorney general.
  • Uber is cheeky for not providing this at $0 charge

    By p#m
    If this is not owned and operated by Uber, then how could you possibly know all the surges And where they are at? Drivers have never gotten a raise, so the least you should do is provide this service at no cost.
  • Does not send surges notifications

    By danblackonleadership.com
    I tired the free trial and was not impressed too much. Later I subscribed for a month and the app does not send you notifications for the surges like it says it will.
