Roses are red
violets are blue

Public feed:

It is closer to Craigslist rideshare rather than Uber, but it works, and works great! The app that is easy to use, supports multiple languages, fast and cool. There are tens of thousands users worldwide, and we're on the way to 1M users. So please spread the word!
