Features You Cannot Miss When You Want to Develop An E-Scooter App
There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to developing a mobile app. But there are some of the features you simply cannot miss when it comes to e-mobility. Here I will jot down some of the features that will help you clear your confusion and will help you turn your business venture into a masterpiece.
Help Your Audience To Locate, Reserve, & Unlock The Nearby E-Scooters
Your app must have a function which will guide your customers to first, locate the e-scooter. Once they locate the nearby scooter or scooters, at their convenience, they can choose one and with a GPS navigator locate it and book the ride.
Another principal feature to make sure that you are serving your customers well is the locking and unlocking of the scooter. Like Bird, you can add a QR code on the e-scooters, and with the help of your mobile app, you can unlock the scooter. In addition to that, it also helps you minimize the risk of being theft.
These above features are elementary to interpret, and you must know that the key to success in e-scooter business is the simplicity of your mobile app.
Help your Audience To End The Ride & Lock the E-scooters with Your App
If the end is well, then all is well. Your customer takes the ride and now reached his/her destination. It is time to end the transaction but wait; he/she cannot lock the e-scooter from the app!!! You need to make sure that you give them a feature which help them lock the e-scooters
Keep a feature that will ease your customers to end the ride from the app. Once they complete it, the scooter will lock itself and will be available for other customers on the map.
Make Tracking Of The E-Scooters Easy For Your Customers
You need an app feature that makes easy for your customers to track e-scooters not just before the ride but during the ride as well. Live GPS tracking can come in handy here. You must make sure that your e-scooter app enables your customers to track the live location.
This feature revolutionized the e-scooter tycoon Bird. Even Uber made sure that their app has a live tracking feature. So, you don’t want to miss out this feature.
