Expanding the Uberverse!
Need I remind you, 007, that you have a license to kill, not to break the traffic laws.
(Q, to James Bond in GoldenEye)

Use our brand new Android app and our first ever app releases for Blackberry and Windows Phone!
In December 2012, we introduced #TheRideAhead for iPhone. Now, we’ve brought that same sleek experience to Android!
- Perfect your pickup – 4square integration, so you don’t need exact addresses anymore
- Know the rates – the fare estimator calculates approximate price and current rates are always shown in the app
- Travel in style – a clean and elegant interface, just like your ride
Our goal is to be everyone’s private driver, and as we grow throughout the world (Bonjour Lyon! Ciao Milano!), we want to provide our users with an experience tailored to them. That means that Blackberry and Windows Phone users can now download our app directly from the Appworld and Marketplace, respectively. We’re excited about these first versions of the apps, and look forward to getting your feedback.
Give our new apps a spin, whatever your phone of choice might be!

A little over a year ago, we set out to put a new spin on an old classic–make reliable food delivery available at the tap of a button. Back then, we started by offering food in the UberEATS app from 1,000 pioneering restaurant partners in four cities. And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS. With a growing restaurant community comes more choices and more complexity. So we’re cooking up features to continue to make UberEATS easy and reliable. Here is a taste–
This flu season, we’re delivering free flu-fighting care packages across the country. When you receive a pack, you’ll have the option to request a free flu shot from a registered nurse–for up to 5 people.
