Frequent booking cancellations, poor customer service, battery hogger. This app hogs too much battery from my mobile, probably because of bad programming. It's always the top entry on the battery usage list, accounting to 26% of the battery. Also, on the two occasions I actually used it, I got my bookings cancelled, only to be rebooked and cancelled again. This happened twice. I called the customer service, and no one knew what happened and could only offer to rebook. To Minicabster: your system has to be worked out so that you don't offer a booking when you are not sure whether the cab company you work with can fullfil it. Also, the waiting times have to be much more precise. Get that and the battery sorted out and you'll have a customer back: I rather make a booking via the app then calling a cab company, but at the current state of the app, I will continue to call.

Bad App & Bad Management I'm not the reviewer type, but this app was so bad that I had to write something. Not only does the app quote higher than what you can actually get if you just call the cab company yourself. The vouchers they offer you either never work or if it does show the discount, you still get charged the whole amount, its not happen to me once but twice. The management of the company is poor and just give you the run around. PLESE PLEASE do not use this app!!!

why does the app need a permission to view other running apps? why it downloads 2-3mb data over mobile network every day even though I didn't use it for weeks? uninstalled.
