Hey! I made this more-or-less over a weekend with my roommate @qnikhil. Uber's been super cool with supporting our API requests. Ask away!

@iambarronroth definitely something we want to do, but probably focusing just on iOS for next 2-3 weeks.

This looks awesome. Would be interesting to see if it could estimate when surge pricing would end in your area based on nearby prices too.

Nice idea. However the first review you have in the app store for a one day old app says: "Has saved me from surge pricing countless times. Thanks surgeprotector!" That may raise a flag in Apple review that the review isn't a valid review, or came from the developer. You don't want Apple suspending you for fake reviews.
