Keep uber app on screen, Lyft can run in background. Lyft will come to front when there's a ping. Accept, then exit other app. Start nav and go.

This is on Android for me.

Instead of doing the app shuffle I hotspot my phone, use a tablet for uber. Accept ping and start nav, then exit other driver app.

Anyone with experience of running Uber and Lyft on Same phone at the Same time? Advice comments...
I've got 2 phones. Added a line to my service for $10/month, use factory reset phone for Uber only. Use my 'main' phone for Lyft.

I had to do this because my phone is not a top-end model, and so it couldn't handle running both at the same time and I would miss requests while the phone lagged. I still have to restart my phone a couple/few times a night to keep it running right. Uber uses a lot of resources, so does Lyft but not as much.

**If you switch phones, make sure you give Uber your new phone number, I didn't think about this and wound calling myself in some kind of weird loop-back a couple times when I was trying to get the PAX the first night.
