Foap Faux Pas

foap

Like many others, I saw the ABC News story about Foap. Introduced as a way for anyone with a smartphone to make money off the photos we take everyday, I agreed the idea was genius. I quickly downloaded the app and started the process of uploading images I thought might have some commercial appeal.  

This is when the problems began. The review and approval process of the uploaded images was clunky and took FOREVER, but after nearly a week and half, most of my images were approved. A few days later, I decided that I wanted to remove a few of my images from the marketplace after-all and no longer offer them for sale. There was no option to do this in the app or online. No delete button, no remove, no nothing. 

I contacted them via email support and did not receive a response for a week. When they did respond, it was to inform me of updates to the service and hype new advertising challenges they were promoting for their brand partners. The email from Foap support did not address my question at all. I replied explaining this, and I have not heard anything since. That was 3 weeks ago.

Out of frustration, I have since sent one last request for them to close my account, but am pretty sure they won’t notice it. 

I like the idea of the Foap app and hope they work out the kinks. I am sure the press they received has overwhelmed them, but it’s still no excuse for poor service. Maybe they have some language barrier issues too seeing that they are based in Sweden? Who knows? 

My recommendation to you, is to avoid the app until they get their poop in a group. If you are a brand looking to partner with these guys, proceed with serious caution. You don’t want to link your brand with a new app that is creating a poor customer experience.

What experience have you had with Foap? I’d like to hear from you.

Lyft Ridesharing Service Gaining Popularity in the Twin Cities

Did you pound too many Grape Apes at the bar and don’t feel like riding home in a smelly cab? Want to avoid paying through the ass while parking your car at the airport? Don’t own a car, but need a quick ride someplace? Lyft is your friend with a car whenever you need one. Lyft has arrived in Minneapolis/St. Paul. Just download the app, tap a button and a friendly driver will be on the way. You get to see a picture of the car and driver, and watch from your phone as the Lyft approaches your location. Passengers sit in the front seat where they can charge their phone and choose the music. There’s also a built in rating system to maintain good service. You’ll also never have to worry about having enough cash because all payments are made with a credit card in the app.

HOW IT WORKS
- Download the Lyft app HERE
- A teal balloon on a map shows where you are
- Black cars on the map show drivers near you
- Request a Lyft and get connected with the closest available driver

Unlike a taxi there’s no set fees, but rather a suggested donation at the end of the ride.

Right now, readers of Duck Duck Gray Duck in any city where Lyft is can receive a $25 credit just by entering code “DUCKDUCK”. That’s worth a share and a like right?
