Uber App Update: Signing up is now a snap-shot!
One of our goals at Uber is to get you to where you want to go as quickly as possible. Of course, before you can request a ride, you need to sign up. But signing up for anything is hard… who wants to stand around and fill out forms? Not us!
We’ve worked hard to make signing up and entering information as simple as possible so that you can be on your way. And now, we’ve introduced a new feature that allows you to simply scan your credit card to add it to your Uber account.
If you’re a frequent online shopper, you might have your credit card numbers, CVVs and expiration dates memorized… (who, me?). However, for most of us, our cards are meaningless strings of numbers. With our latest iPhone app update, all you need to do is hold up your card in front of your phone. Here’s how it works:
Android users – we’ll soon be integrating this feature into our Android app so you can also feel the magic. ;)
We’ve got lots of exciting new things coming along, so keep an eye out here for more product updates!

This gift is part of a partnership we announced earlier this year. In addition, we’re pumped to be part of a growing innovation ecosystem in Pittsburgh that includes world leading research institutions and companies, as well as an increasing number of start-ups.
A new report conducted in partnership with Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) reveals that when empowered with more transportation options like Uber, people are making better choices that save lives.
