Peer-to-peer car rental startup Getaround is built around the idea of helping customers to make use of cars they own, which are sitting around not being driven most of the time.
Also, to help those without cars to quickly and easily gain access to one that’s sitting around and actually use it.
And so the startup is introducing a new iPhone app aimed at simplifying the whole process and providing its users with better tools for finding and driving away cars nearby. The new app was designed from the ground up, introducing new features and making the thing a whole lot faster.
For one thing, the Getaround app now allows users to browse and search for nearby cars without having to already be signed in. That will let more potential car renters check out the service before committing to actually signing up — even if in this case ‘signing up’ means clicking on a Facebook Connect login.
