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)
James Bond always started his adventures by visiting Q to pick up the equipment he needed to save the world. You may not be 007, and your average night out probably doesn’t include taking down super-villains… but you don’t need Q to Uber to your adventures. 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!
