    I’ve gotten $100 cash tip. But via the app the highest I’ve got is 25$

    This is a super lazy solution by these companies just bring up a confirmation check box if it seems like a high tip and if the rider confirms that's what they want to give then let them.

    Stick with your usual video style. Might need more work on acting skills before primetime. Good effort though

    I feel this is a rich people problem. Although, drivers who are struggling financially will be affected too

    Yeah what percentage of people tip over $100 AND don't have cash on them? 0.001%?

    I'm guessing the percentage of people who accidentally tip large amounts when meaning to tip smaller amounts is much higher than people trying to tip over $100 and the limit is a safeguard against that.

    Otherwise your next story will be on how someone got swindled out of their mortgage payment because the Uber app's tipping system lacks a safeguard.

    Wait…so this story is about not being able to tip more than a hundred dollars? Who the hell is trying to give $110 tips to an Uber driver?! Oh wait, nobody is. That's why nobody knows about this limit. In other words, it doesn't matter. It's supposed to be a ride sharing service – not a taxi service, remember?

    Uber drivers in 3rd world countries would just cancel on you if you use credit card as a payment option

    Wasn't the whole idea of ride sharing to get away from tipping and the high cost of a ride?

    Only way I’d tip over 200% for a damn ride is if a happy ending is also included.

    Lyft is he same 15 dollar cap…a lady complained after my friend drove 20 minutes to give the passenger her phon she left behind. She complained because she wanted to leave a huge tip and could not. My friend struggles to make a living driving in Denver and that garbage does not help.
