The car club, which has over a thousand VW Golfs, Polos and vans scattered over London like petrol-puffing pixie dust, hopes to make its hourly car-hire scheme easier to use by letting members book cars and even unlock them from within the app.
We were impressed with the Streetcar app's comprehensiveness -- every detail of each of their cars is included, for example. They say that a booking takes around 60 seconds from the time you make it to the time you can unlock the car. So with the app in hand, you could easily spot a Streetcar vehicle, make a booking and hop in within a couple of minutes -- even if you don't have your membership card with you.
The best part is you never have to speak to a customer-service drone. And it's just plain cool. We took the app for a literal and metaphorical test drive to see if it made life easier or just took us for a ride. Click 'Continue' to see it in action, or download here from iTunes.
