After much wait and patience, the Drover Rideshare team is proud to announce that we will be launching the Drover Rideshare app on the Apple App Store within the next few weeks.
In addition to the core functionality of the Drover app (facilitating ridesharing), we are working on developing a new feature, Drover Music, that will also allow riders to request and play songs from their phone during their ride. The rider will use Spotify to search for a song to request to play. The request will be received by the driver if the driver allows songs to be played in their vehicle. Once the request is approved, the song will play through the driver’s phone using Spotify while the driver continues to the rider’s requested destination.
The On-Demand Economy is here. To recap from my On-Demand Economy blog entry, the On-Demand economy is composed of people-to-people transactions facilitated by technology companies (aka smartphone apps), in which people order goods or services and other people deliver/provide that good/service. In order to rise to the opportunity the On-Demand Economy presents, Drover is proud to announce Drover Delivery, a service by which app users will be able to order food (and hopefully other goods) delivered to them by our drivers.
During the last few weeks, we have been meeting with all kinds of people to talk about Drover. The main question (and understandably so) that everyone asks us is: "What makes Drover unique?" So today, we are going to talk about the Drover difference -- everything that makes us special, and then some.
The moment we have all been waiting for is here -- the Drover App has officially launched on the Google Play Store! Check it out on the Play Store here.
After months of time and effort, we are beyond excited to make this announcement. iOS development isn't far behind, but we couldn't wait to launch the android app.
Drover Rideshare officially became a corporation on May 13, 2016. Near that date, CEO Jeff Garland assembled a team of some of the best app developers in Tennessee to start working on Drover's Android and iOS apps. In the past four months, our app dev team have been working tirelessly on bringing Drover to the app market. Today, I am ecstatic to announce that the Android App is 'core complete'.
