Sign up now and get $20 in credits! Use DGQ7YT to start with a $20 credit in your new account. (NOTE, the $20 deal reverts to $10 at midnight on 10/1/14.) FW is the service that connects you to licensed & insured cab drivers. I.E. NO SEIZURES! For Flywheel to work you need a stable data connection and GPS signal. I like to use the notes function to let the driver know where I am. Turn off the app after your ride because it will deplete the battery and use data. If you have problems let customer care know. They are super nice :)

Complete trash, uber way better Ordered a cab with fly wheel, the wait was 10 mins. He wasnt moving on the map so I tried calling, no answer. About 10 mins later he cancels, and now all drivers are busy. What a waste, with uber the driver aren't allowed to cancel.

Was a good thing...now? When I started using Flywheel, I thought it was the best thing ever. Now, not so much. Last week, just after I got in my taxi, the driver said "I hope this thing comes back up". Seems the Sprint network (Flywheel runs on Sprint) went bye-bye. We sat a my destination for five minutes, and nothing - he was not able to enter the fare. We ended up settling in cash. I have sent Flywheel two messages about this, and they have ignored me. This week, a similar thing (tho not exactly the same) happened. Driver was able to enter the fare when we got to my destination. That was over five hours ago. My phone continued to say "trip in progress" or something like that. I finally had to uninstall the app & reinstall to clear the "trip in progress" Forcing a stop & clearing all data did not help. No charge has appeared on my credit card and I have not received the customary email receipt, so I'm guessing the driver has been shafted. I called him later, and he seems to think it went through, but since I have not received an email receipt, and nothing has shown up on my credit card, I think it did not go thru. Next time around, I'm going to try Curb (formerly Taxi Magic).
