Find a ride near you ASAP. When you launch the app, you'll be brought to your current location right away. And you can see if there are any Uber cars nearby. Just set your pickup location and then enter the address of your destination. Pick a type of Uber, and then wait for your ride to arrive in minutes. Don't worry about not having a ride again!
Save money on your next ride. Enter points A and B for your journey to see an estimated price range of how much your ride will cost. Plus, make sure to search for promo and referral codes if you're a new user to save some dough on your first ride. It's definitely cheaper than a taxi. But watch out for those Surge times, where the prices are more expensive due to popular demand.
What is it about?
Uber allows you to be in control of your taxi ride via your iPhone and Apple Watch. When you open the app, you'll see the live location of Uber cars near you so you can request one to pick you up.
For those who...
- Are looking to save money on a cab ride
- Like to have a night out on the town but don't have a designated driver (be safe, friends!)
Not for those who...
- Fear the lack of regulations surrounding the company
- Are paranoid about getting in a car with strangers
Why we love it
With the latest update rolling out to Uber users, you'll have access to even more power over your travels. Instead of having to edit your destination when you need to make multiple stops, you can set several destinations when you request your ride. On the destination screen, just tap the plus sign next to the empty field. This adds more options for stops, but you have to do it in that order. Otherwise, you'll go to the fare summary screen and have to tap back to do the multiple destination option. Uber reminds you to keep stops limited to three minutes or less, or your fare changes. Recently, the ride sharing company began charging a waiting fee if you didn't come out to your Uber right away, so the fee will probably be along those same lines. The fee is $0.35 per minute in New York City, and varies by location. As of right now, Uber limits you to three stops on your trip. That's enough to make a quick jaunt to two stores or other locations before heading back home.
