BlaBlaCar Gets Mobile
After being featured on the Apple app store homepage two weeks running, we're celebrating 6000 downloads (and counting) of our english mobile app that connects drivers and passengers on the go. A couple of thoughts on why you need to get it too.
Planning just got easier
Car sharing is all about planning: a lead-in time is needed to connect passengers with drivers. But with our mobile app that time just got shorter. Alot shorter. Now BlaBlaCar users can post and find a ride while they're out and about, even connecting with members for a same day trip. For example, if you just missed your train and are stranded at the station: app to the rescue! Or perhaps you drove up to your Grans for the weekend, but much to your dismay, she still doesn't have an Internet connection. Not a problem! With the mobile app, just decide when you want to get back on the road, and find a passenger to share the costs of your trip.
A real time-saver
The mobile app is also a great solution for busy people. For example, the click-to-call feature lets you ring up a fellow member and discuss trip details in just one click. Geolocation effortlessly pin points your current location and identifies drivers or passengers nearby. Think of all the effort you've saved your overworked little fingertips! The instant notification feature allows you to get and answer your messages from your smart phone, as they arrive. Getting quickly back to members makes trips easier and faster to organise. To discover all the smart features of the app, check out the Mobile App Page.
It's available for Android and iPhone, and yes, it's completely free! Don't forget to leave us a nice review: the more people there are using the app, the more useful the service becomes for everyone, including you!
