Just saw this. Going to give it a try as I had a decent run with Lyft the other day. It's $100 a year or $12 a month. Anyone use it? It guarantees that you never miss a ping and for the price, which is tax deductible, I think it has merit. Oh, and it helps you cancel out pool requests or not accept those with too low ratings.

This is what I'm talking about: http://help.mystrodriver.com/article/90-auto-accept-feature

Just pay attention and switch yourself. Of course unless you are in the edge of deactivation.
I've often had times where I'd end up missing pings on one app while receiving two at same time. I think acceptance rating matters in that you could get deactivated? I don't know of this is true anymore. And I hate it when phone freezes and I miss a ping. I heard it as a rumor for getting low acceptance. Lyft seems to care? Idk.

Acceptance rate doesn't matter.

I am king of low acceptance rate :D

Actually I've started using it and I think it is amazing. Been getting nonstop requests from both apps when the app switches and with how busy it is keeping me, twelve bucks a month or one hundred per year is totally worth it.

I currently run uber and lyft at same time on an iphone (mystro won't work on it). How is this app able to get me MORE fares than I currently get?

Anyway, "pax filtering", this doesn't do, does it? It filters them by score? Holy crap, the damn thing should allow black listing. It could only reliably do that on lyft because it could match by name + picture (or name + address if residential), but it should allow drivers to black list a rider; "Rider was belligerent", "Rider smells like horse dung", etc. and then if their blacklist rating is high enough per number of trips they've done, no drivers ever get pings for them. It would allow drivers the ability to ban people if lyft won't.

Turned into an addict in one day... test it for a month to see if it remains consistently good. I personally use the app, but it's not flawless by any stretch of the imagination and this is due to problems with Lyft and Waze compatibility. Also unless you force stop the Mystro app, it will continue draining the battery in the background because it's an accessibility tool, it needs to be stopped each end of shift (by going to your settings and switching it to the "off"" in accessibility). Is it worth it? I say yes, because in heavy traffic it makes switching much safer, but the Lyft and Waze problem is always annoying. Waze has officially commented on the bug, but they do not have an ETA on when they will fix it. (It's when Lyft will say 'navigating to pax' and it tries to open Waze, and Waze just loops, doing nothing, and when it finishes you aren't navigating anywhere, and you need to press 'navigate' yourself.

I use ZTE Axon Mini 7 and I've not had those problems with it. I did have the loop bug with Uber though, so I don't think Mystro is the cause. But there's a better way: it doesn't have auto start, so if you use a custom UI as I do for your phone, you can just go into app settings and force close it. It won't turn on again and won't keep draining your battery.

It gives you more fares by making sure that you don't get double pings, and switches to appropriate apps without being distracted and without having to worry about your phone freezing up. Lyft and Uber don't care about pax ratings, so you have to depend on this app. Think of it this way: when you get overlaid accept button when not in Uber, it doesn't tell you rating of the passenger. It's only by clicking the notification that it switches you into the app to show you, and then that takes time to load and decide if you want to skip. This app does it in the background and makes life a lot easier in my opinion. It's better than a macro. I like it personally, so I'm recommending it. I don't have a top end phone, either (why would you? You'd kill the battery's capacity in a few months by having it plugged in for many hours like that). All the app does is make sure you're constantly online somewhere and makes it as efficient as possible.

So, when a lot of low rated pax requests come in from Lyft, then the app won't accept them.. but that still goes against your "Acceptance Rate" with Lyft, right ?

I really like this app, but it's not perfect. I love that it will automatically accept rides that fit my criteria, then let me decide if I feel like accepting one that does not, such as a pick up over 12 minutes away (my current setting). However for whatever reason it has not automatically accepted a couple of rides that fit my criteria, and this morning did not auto accept when I was on the phone twice. I missed out on a ride the first time. But overall I love how it usually accepts the ride, then shuts off the other app, without me having to touch my phone at all. Then when the ride is over turns the other app on again without my having to do anything. Like their slogan says "Just Drive".

I tested it for a week and it does do a good job of turning off one app when you accept a ride from another app but it does seem to be a resources hog.
Yeah, I figured out that if you disable apps from starting up, there's no issue with it being a resource hog. The main problem is that phones have too much shit on them. After I cleaned up my programs (not delete--just not let them start and force shut-down the ones that were running), it was fine for me. In any case, I had a good run with it today and can form opinions now.

When you're on the phone, it has issues switching apps. I also noticed when I was browsing my earnings, it wouldn't turn off the app until the "online/offline" was visible. I believe this is a macro that is executed within the phone itself, and it can only do that if certain things don't override it.
