Piggyback is a dynamic ridesharing application that runs on recent phones. Piggyback’s objective is to share car-related expenses between users, while reducing everybody’s carbon footprint in the process.

Our goal is to rationalize the way we use our cars today. We may be heading toward a petrol-free civilization, but for now, we’re stuck with oil. According to different studies, the occupancy rate for car varies on average between 1.1 to 1.2 passenger per car. There is huge room for improvement.

In Piggyback, there are only two possible scenarios:

1. You’re a driver with available seats, willing to pick up people to reduce your costs

When you start Piggyback, entering your destination will make your car available for searching by users who are looking for a car.

If people are interested in your destination, they can send you a ride request that you are free to accept or reject (according to user ratings, detour length, you mood etc.)

Picking up passengers will induce rerouting for you most of the time, this is why Piggyback will take such factors into account to compensate you on the detour part of your trip (pick up and drop off locations).

If you successfully pick up passengers, costs (calculated with our home-made algorithm) will be shared evenly between everyone inside the car on the common portion of the car trip.

After a successful trip, you may rate the passengers you picked up, or even add them as favorites.

Finally, Piggyback can map your driving patterns to help you find passengers more easily and more regularly (on your daily commute, for instance).


2. You want to be a passenger to reduce your carbon footprint and save money.

You may want to do this because you don’t personally own a car, you think gas has become too expensive, you’re…

  • Amazon is ending its Underground ‘Actually Free’ app program

    Amazon’s Appstore for Android has always been at a disadvantage compared to the Play Store. It isn’t included on devices other than its own Fire tablets, and the Play Store has a lot more content. Amazon has tried to entice users to get apps from the Appstore with various promotions and free apps. Back in 2015, Amazon launched the Actually Free program, which offered paid apps and games at no cost.

  • BLU’s $160 R1 Plus comes equipped with a 5.5″ 720p display, a MediaTek chip, a 4000mAh battery, and Marshmallow (in 2017!)

    Oh, BLU. You make good phones for the money, but you’ve shown you just don’t care about software time and time again. The brand new R1 Plus features some decent hardware, like 3GB of RAM and a 4000mAh battery, for $159.99… but it has Android 6.0 Marshmallow onboard. It’s 2017, guys.


    If you haven’t been turned off by the 2015 software (not likely if you’re a frequent reader of this site), the R1 Plus is actually a pretty good endurance machine.

  • Everything you need to know about Make VR

    Bring all of your creations from VR into the real world using Make VR.

You can adjust the shape and scale, turn full items into wire outlines, and plenty more. Essentially, this is a CAD engine that allows you to see what you’re creating in 3D before you send it off to the printer to bring into the real world.

  • Galaxy Note 5 and S6 series owners, how’s the Nougat update treating you?

    A big update for some aging phones.

    Depending on the carrier and version of the phone, it’s been between a few weeks and a few days since your Galaxy Note 5 or Galaxy S6 series phone was updated to Nougat.

    The update, surprisingly, brings Samsung’s 2015-era phones largely to feature parity with the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S8 — barring any hardware-specific variances — and updates the Samsung Experience UI to the company’s blue-and-white color palette that it adopted with Nougat. Android 7.0 also brings battery-saving features in the form of a lower default resolution and improvements to background resources, which will hopefully boost uptime for a series of phones that were criticized for not having great battery life.

    Beyond that, though, these are the same great phones that they’ve always been, even two years later. The Note 5, especially, feels like a new phone, and given that there’s no Note 7 on the market anymore, it’s still the phone we recommend if you need pen …

  • Best flash drives to expand your NVIDIA Shield Android TV’s storage

    It’s cheap and easy to expand the internal storage of your set top box.

    The latest revision of the NVIDIA Shield Android TV may have lost its SD card slot, but it still has two perfectly good USB 3.0 ports that can work to expand your internal storage. You can attach just about anything to those ports, but with just 16GB of internal storage, many will want to fill one with an inexpensive flash drive that can be adopted into the system and work just as if it were internal storage.

    NVIDIA actually makes a great set of recommendations for which flash drives work best with your Shield, and having done some research on them ourselves, we want to point out which ones are the drives to go with.

    Samsung’s “bar” flash drives are simple and offer really good value for the money. They’re sleek and sturdy with their metal casing, but sometimes you can also find plastic variations with the same capacities and speeds for a lower price. Whether you get metal …
