Uber API Closing Down

June 06, 2019

Today Uber announced to developers that public access to their API will close down on June 13th, 2019. Not only did they give developers only a one week notice, but they also released the anouncement a week after Lyft closed down their API. Uber provided a form to request access to the API.

How does this affect Surge?

We have filled out the form requesting access to the Uber API. At this time, we can only assume we will not be getting approval and will lose access to the Uber API.

For the time being, Surge will continue to work. We have disabled all In-App-Purchase options.

We will continue to post updates on the blog as this develops.

The End of Primetime

May 31, 2019

As of yesterday our access to the Lyft API was terminated. Lyft nerver responded about restoring our access to the API. This is saddly the end of Primetime.

Primetime had a good run of almost three years, launching on August 8th, 2016. We thank everyone who used the app and for those who paid for a premium membership. We are sad to see the app go.

Lyft API Closing Down

May 01, 2019

Lyft announced to developers on April 16th, 2019, that their API is no longer open to the general public. Their notice states the API closure begins on April 16th and will continue through to May 30th. For developers who already have API access, they are required to apply for approval to maintain their access to the Lyft APIs.

How does this affect Primetime?

We have applied to Lyft to maintain our access to the Lyft API. So far we have received no response. At this time, we can only assume we will not be getting approval and will lose access to the Lyft APIs by the end of May.

For the time being, Primetime is continuing to work. We have currently disabled the multiple month premium membership In-App-Purchase options. The one month option is still available for users who want to use Primetime until we lose access to the Lyft API.

We will continue to post updates on the blog as this develops.
