    Love this tool. glad you guys posted about it. people probably know the app has an estimation feature but its finnicky, hard-iish to find and only lets you estimate one car service at a time. and i could be wrong but i dont think it shows the actual current cost if theres a surge? so you still need to whip out the calc lol. also as i'm beginning to travel more, i find it extremely useful to be able to budget my travel plans for a city im not in quite yet.
