Zipcar is an application that gives users the ability to find Zipcars in their area, extend their reservation, lock and unlock the doors and more with the Android application.
Zipcar is a very unique application. It lets you search for Zipcars in your area, along with the added option of searching by make and model. As long as you are a member you can reserve a Zipcar, extend your reservation, unlock or lock the doors of your Zipcar, and much more with the application.
If you read the description it says it will save you money versus renting a car or car ownership itself. I did put this to the test and have to admit they are right. By being a Zipcar member you do not pay for insurance and day long rentals are as low as $66. This is a very unique application and program itself and one that is worth taking a look at.

This is an interesting application and users would definitely get more use out of it if they are or want to become a member. If you are a member than this is definitely the app for you.
Ease of Use:
The application is fairly easy to use. Upon opening it up you can either login if you are already a member or you can check it out via “not a member button”.
As long as you are a member of Zipcar’s service you will definitely get quite a bit of use out of this application. They added ability to be able to unlock and lock the doors of your Zipcar is a novelty bonus.
The interface is very nicely done and very easy to use. I had no issues maneuvering throughout the application at all.
