Hello Flex Drivers
We are a team of developers in the early stages of developing an App that can automatically swipe and accept blocks for you. Instead of spending countless hours trying to get a block, the APP will monitor blocks posted while refreshing your screen automatically, and push the ACCEPT button, if you so wish. We are looking for a wish list / feature requests you believe you would benefit from, if you could enhance the FLEX app.
Also, we are interested in hearing how much would you pay on a monthly basis to have this app installed? Would you pay 18$ a month for not having to swipe and stare at your phone in an attempt to get a block? We would like to provide this as a free APP to download, but as a monthly subscription. – 18$ a month represents 0.6 cents a day. – That is, would you pay $0.60 cents a day for not having to occupy your hands and eyes trying to catch a block?
While the “First in First out” rule still applies to blocks being posted by Amazon (that is, no guarantee you will be the first one to grab that block , even when the APP pushes the ACCEPT button) your greately increase as due to high frequency refreshes rates-sub second increments.
Your thoughts, wishes are welcome.June 13, 2017 at 10:02 pm #168
The motivation behind this is that the way it is – it is already a by chance for most that say countless hours hitting refresh. The number of API calls is already significant as it is. Having it automated will spare you from eye fatigue and finger fatigue. And it will increase the chances of those adopting the app provided the APP will offer a customized/parameter driven option the user can set to Automatically accept options based on criteria. For example, run indefinetly but only accept offers with blocks posted between the hours of 4PM and 8PM, Monday thru Friday. Or for those who “Live” in the distribution center – catch and accept anything.
Also, we are considering adding extra features such as capturing stats during your route – so you can better assess the cost/profit of driving. (Miles per hour, avg cost of fuel, geo capturing of your stopping points, or any documentation of interest that can be used for reporting purposes (and tax filing).
Again, comments and suggestions are welcome. We want to understand what the community is looking for, and at what price we can license the app as a service to access the feasibility of this project.June 14, 2017 at 2:26 am #170

Thank you for the interest. We are in the early stages of development and are gathering requirements to enrich the app with features that are meaningful and of value to the Flex community. I encourage everyone who is interested to leave a comment with what you would like to see in the app. We will announce an early adopter program soon.June 14, 2017 at 8:44 pm #174

A similar app already exists, although it’s a lot more expensive and exclusive. If you want to use it, e-mail email@example.com. Be prepared to show some proof of your identity and your ability to be discrete.June 14, 2017 at 9:21 pm #178

I am interested. Flex Driver who desperately need more hours. firstname.lastname@example.orgJune 15, 2017 at 4:31 am #186
I am also very interested. I would pay $20 a month for such a device/option. I could just deduct the fee on my taxes. I paid like $7 a week to rent an I phone from Uber when i first drove for them. Would it have the capability to notify me when blocks have been accepted ? Like thru some type of notification ? Could i get a text notifying me that i have accepted a block ? Or could i get a tweet ? By the time i get email notifications that i have a block reserved for me, and check the App, its gone. The time delay from the time they reserve the block for me, to the time i get the email is too long so i never see it in time. Would the notifications from this App be right away ? Could it even possibly ring my phone (call me) with an automated response that i have a reserved block available ? I am not one to spend hours on the App refreshing. I just cant do it. This option would be fantastic. When do you think it will be available ? My email is: Davewainwright1@gmail.com. Thanks !June 15, 2017 at 7:20 pm #188
Flex drivers are already fighting for blocks because people are already using third party applications. So what would be so different about this application.June 16, 2017 at 3:43 pm #190
