About 4 updates ago, I noticed that data usage within the app has sky rocketed. Instead of improving and optimising the app, their developers are making it worse. I topped up my phone with Rs 100 of credit and opened the app to book a tuk tuk. I was in the app a total of 16 minutes. When I then check the amount of credit I had, I was down to Rs 34!! The data usage on just that single booking took most of my credit! I had to actually turn the app off when the driver arrived because I knew the remaining Rs 34 would be long gone before I even got to my destination. Now I know some of you may say that Rs 100 isn't a big deal or Rs 60 isn't a big deal, but it's the principal. Why are PickMe devs so incompetent that the app requires such heavy data usage? I spend way less data on Facebook looking at photos and loading ads! Even if I had a data plan, it would have eaten a large chunk of my allocated data! If our cellular providers gave us 100Gb and unlimited Gb for Rs 1000 etc then there would be nothing to complain about but a lot of cellular providers in Sri Lanka offer much smaller data packages and given that PickMe is so widely used they should be better optimising the app for data usage. It's just absolutely ridiculous that requesting a taxi can consume that much data. Google maps is already highly optimised so it isn't the mapping data. And tracking data shouldn't be that heavy on data either. I really hope someone at PickMe fixes this problem otherwise I'm just going to get rid of the app and stop taxis on the side of the road again. It might cost a little more but at least I'll still have data to surf and do all things I wanted.
