  1. I used this and loved it, on a trip in San Francisco. I was able to queue up cabs while I was still in the lobby so it was right there as I stepped out the door, and the e-receipts were great for plugging into the expense reports. No need for cash, no hassle trying to deal with a robot in the middle of traffic.

  2. The login is so small you can not even navigate to the PIN and even though the email box appears to be long enough to hold many chars, it wraps after half full.
