    They're still making software for apple? What are they down to, about 5% market share? With Android breaking over 81%, we won't even bother wasting resources on anything else.

    I emailed them and they said they will be also coming out with a windows phone app in the future. I like the windows phone because I can move between that and my laptop easily. The only down side is the low amount of apps so far.

    haha, read the comments…they say $25 per driveway is steep….i hate driveways, our minimum is $50 and we probably have 75 or so, never really hear "wow that's high." i do give them a take it or leave it tone with confidence, because i'm almost hoping they say no ha

    That's a pretty smart setup for them.

    Wondering what their contract looks like and who holds liability?

    That's actually a neat idea. As long as you have room in your route to add a few more drives if there close, why not. Wonder how much of a cut the programmer gets?

    My question would be... what company would have room left on their routes to get a ton of spur of the moment requests??

    You know the requests would really only flow in during massive snow storms... and those are the ones were our routes already feel way to big as they are.

    Seems like a lot of people would be requesting a service and have no one show up.

    Pretty neat idea! One way a newbie could start a bushiness.
