Surge 2x App Details

Surge allows you to monitor the Uber surge at your current location or a fixed location. You will be able to receive notifications when a surge starts, increases/decreases, and ends. Surge supports fine grained notification settings. You can specify the Surge minimum to be notified and what type of notifications to receive. Surge also supports a Today Widget, showing you the surge value at your current location. Be sure to follow our Twitter and Facebook feed for updates. An Uber account is required in order to authenticate with the Uber API. You don't need to use a driver account, you can use a rider account. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

    Not enough time to even get to the surge. It’s very hard to only be able to check ONE town at a time, it needs to be updated so that while using this app we can see all or atleast multiple towns at once. Also by the time i get the surge notification i never can make it to the town before it’s over!

    Before they lost the right to display surge everywhere I was using this to make googobs of bank. Now it's ok for a free app, but do not spend on it. Update: this app is currently running ok with multiple updates running at the same time, but it doesn't do a great job of notifying you. I like the fact that they lowered the prices, and that the navigate to allows you to use waze and gmaps over the crapple map default. 1 allow users to change notification sounds & volume. 2 allow users to see surge statistics in a pie chart. 3 allow users to set timers that go active on their own.

  • Avoid subscription, but free version is useful

    Use it for free and you’ll still get to use one helpful feature that can give you an edge as a driver: displaying the active surge multiplier for your current location. This is great for riders who want to monitor their bills and try to wait out a surge, but it’s also helpful for drivers who cannot see any surge levels while they are in the middle of a trip with a passenger. Being able to see the current surge level as you drive your current passenger is very useful for determining whether or not to accept the next trip without seeing the entire maps surges. Knowing the current surge gives you an idea of whether the surge level will be better or worse in the 5-20 minutes it’ll take to drop off your current passenger. If I’m getting pinged with the next trip while I continue on my current trip, checking the current surge level on this app helps me decide whether to accept it or reject it and stop the incoming pings until after I’ve dropped off the passenger. This strategy of waiting to accept the next trip before the current one is complete can maximize your earnings, especially on busy weekend nights when you know surge will spike around 2a.m. and die by 3:00a.m., or conversely, knowing that the next trips pickup location will die down by the time you’re done a current trip means that accepting during your trip and locking it in then and there enables you to use your time effectively and ride the surge to its potential. This app provides access to an otherwise unavailable metric thats great to consider when you strategize your next accepted trip. I wish I could have that metric for more locations than just my current one, but apparently the paid subscription no longer offers that or anything else that’s remotely useful. During the writing of this review (2/18/18), it appears the developers aren't responding to customer concerns and are not actively working to improve the app or incentivize potential subscribers. If progress is made in that regard, I would pay for the subscription and revise my review. Maybe I’ll just make my own app. Who needs these nerds anyways?

    It used to be 100 times better last year. Now it's just good enough to pay for
