STILL can’t change the language - UPDATED
I downloaded the app while in France, but my phone’s settings are in English. Even so, the app insisted on French. I’m back in the US, and traveling in Mexico frequently, but I’m still stuck using French and Euros. I know enough French to get around, but I’d much prefer English or Spanish. That you refuse to allow a language or currency change in the app shows that you fail to reconcile the diversity of your clientele. Do better. UPDATE: after a reply from the developer, advising me to change my region to the UK (I live in the US), I’d like to ask: Do the developers understand that this is an app for travelers, and thus it might be a nice feature to be able to customize options such as language and currency? Who wants to change the settings of their entire phone just to customize one single application? I’m presently in Mexico, and would love to use the BlaBlaCar app to book a car. But when I use the app, my only options are French and Euros. So, I go to the website, change to Mexico and Pesos, and set up alerts for new trips. Then, I get emails about new trip in English, with Pounds as the currency? Nobody wants to have to do all these unnecessary currency conversions, and nobody wants to struggle through a language they barely speak, unless the goal is to learn that language. BlaBlaCar as a service is great, but there are a LOT of improvements that have to be made before this app can deserve 5 stars.
Great idea and product.
The company sometimes applies major workflow changes, for instance how payments are done. It would be nice if there would be notifications to the user to explain why there is a change and what actually changes. There is in fact some confusion amongst users as to how things work because of this. Also, the Messages section has never been very stable ever since I have used it, which is about a couple of years. Notifications come through, but if the user has the app open on the Messages section, One needs to exit the Messages section and come back in in order to refresh it and see new messages.
To make it even better
I think you guys should make the app able to save the messages and the informations for the driver and for the trip information Because today I didn’t have internet reception and I was waiting for the woman in the place we agreed to meet at , and I tried to make sure that I’m in the right place but I couldn’t because I couldn’t see the messages in the app and I think it’s a problem if I need to see some information that might help me at the time . You guys should think about it I think its very important to be able to use the app in the off line mode just to see some information like messages or just a phone number Or the time and the place of the meeting Thanks
Devs won’t fix crappy region and language settings
I see people have complained about this for years. And for years, this is why I haven’t used it. You open it up and it’s stuck in whatever language the country you are in uses. Developers, here’s a tip: when a lot of people are complaining about something, you should probably fix it. Unless you don’t like making money. Every other app has language settings when you first start it. This isn’t rocket science. Oh, and before you comment: my language and region is US/English. FIX. YOUR. APP. Edit: I know you’re aware of it. You have been for YEARS. Look how old some of the negative reviews talking about it are. Every time I consider trying your app, I see it’s still there. Are you in business or aren’t you? Do you want to make money or not? STOP BEING CHEAP AND LAZY AND FIX IT.
User cannot choose his language
As other reviewers have pointed out, this app sets the language according to the country chosen, making it effectively useless for many of us. I understand from developer responses to other reviews that they are working on this problem. There’s a feature for ID verification; my verifications failed repeatedly but no information as to why, or what to do was forthcoming. Following my initial posting of this review, the developer kindly contacted me to ask for further details. To me this indicates a good developer so I improved my rating. Furthermore, they are releasing new versions frequently.
Great concept-- a long distance Uber in many respects. Expect to get to know the other passengers, because y'all will be spending multiple hours in a small car together. However! There needs to be differentiation between location and language. I'm an American visiting Spain at the moment. If I say I'm in Spain, the app turns to Spanish and has no option to change it. I have to pretend I'm in England, and read all prices in British Pounds, to use this service in Spain. Should be an easy fix that may happen by the time you read this review. Overall a great app.
NEVER USE OR TRUST if not a local
My driver canceled no me a few hours before my trip. Bla Bla makes the rider wait 7days for the driver to agree that they canceled. Feels like the driver has taken my money and I can’t do anything about it for a week. Not fair to the rider and let’s the driver scam riders traveling through on vacation since they will be long gone or out of country. Also I did try to book another driver. They had until 1:59pm to confirm a 4pm trip, but he never did accept the ride resulting in the app not allowing me to accept a ride from a third driver. Finally I just got a bus because it was my only option left. Could have missed connection. If you are traveling or not a local I would NEVER USE or TRUST THIS APP!!!
I downloaded the app because it showed up on Google maps as an alternative to local mass transit options but also because Lyft doesn’t exist here in Florence, IT. Anyhow, the interface is nice and for the most part intuitive to the user. The issue I have are that (1) it presents options that don’t really exist and ends up wasting bandwidth and time and (2) tends to have more server connectivity issues than expected. For example, I click on one option and i get a red banner that says it can’t find it. Or I get a message notification but when i click on the message icon i get a similar message. If those issues get fixed, I can see this being a good app.
Can't change language
I would love to use this app, but unfortunately it seems impossible to change the language setting. I downloaded it while in Belgium and it will only use French. My French is seriously lacking so I don't feel comfortable using the app. I followed the developer's suggestion to another reviewer and checked that my phone settings are correct, but it makes no difference. I've tried deleting and reinstalling the app while here in the US, but, nope, still in French. Why is this simple issue not corrected by now? Other apps let you choose language and currency.
First time I used it to go to Malaga. It took me several hours to purchase the ride because of an error of processing my card that has more than enough money on it. Later I tried to go to Valencia and I was never able to purchase a ride. It kept coming up with error messages. I used 4 different cards and even used one of my friend’s cards and it was the same. I deleted the app and tried to get it back and log in and it told me to try another way of logging in even though my password was correct. The idea of the app is great and the one time I used it was fine but there are many bugs on the daily
Milan to Venice
I was looking up routes to find the quickest way from Milan to Venice and found blah blah car it seemed very professional and easy to use however I was unable to use this service because I needed an SMS sent to my phone. I am not sure if the app coordinates with United States phone numbers so I was unable to use it. It seems like a very convenient way to get around but was bummed the SMS was unable to coordinate with non local residents. Any clarification would be greatly appreciated.
Needs some basic stuff
We are from USA but the only way to get the app in English is to say we are from the UK That means our ID doesn’t match up as it is not UK ID. There appears to be no way to change language once the app is set up. There is no tech support in the app We’ve been charged but have not yet heard from driver and don’t know when/where we meet and there is nowhere in the app to ask for assistance. Good idea and we r crossing fingers that driver will answer our numerous texts and phone calls.
I hope you guys can give us the option to run the app on the language we choose, for exemple im a student i live in Ukraine and i use the Ukrainian version so i can see the whole list of drivers and i can't change the language in-the app to English so i can better understand how to run through the app smoothly otherwise everything is cool, i like the new design
I am an American traveler sitting with my friends in Ukraine and when I sign in, there are no rides on any common routes; when they sign in, there are tons of rides on the same routes and dates. They work in IT and we are all shocked that this international traveler app... isn’t international. The app gives false negatives and won’t show rides in other languages. Now I know why I couldn’t find rides for the past seven weeks! Total disaster. You can only get rides in your home countries. Otherwise .. good luck. Such a shame. We tested on multiple phones. Same results.
Good app but the browser is still a lot better
The app is good but still a lot space to improve. As many travelers we relocate temporarily in new cities/countries. One thing the app could improve is the option to change the language independently from the OS system location, also the currency should be have an option to see it in a different one. Offline retrieve of messages of data.
