Sidecar Ride, the official iOS app of the popular Sidecar ride-sharing service, has just been updated to version 3.0 with several significant enhancements. These enhancements happen to include an all-new interface for iOS 7. Of course, Sidecar Ride's new iOS 7-inspired design is simply flat (or flatly simple, depending on whom you're asking), as befits the look and feel of the operating system. On top of that, Sidecar Ride 3.0 features the following improvements for a better and safer ride-sharing experience:
Sidecar Ride 3.0 is available now in the App Store for free. It's optimized for iPhone and iPod touch running iOS 5.0 or later. Note that Sidecar is currently available in San Francisco, Oakland, San Jose, Seattle, Los Angeles, Long Beach, San Diego, Chicago, Boston, and Washington, D.C.
