Get your Uber app now, fresh from the oven!
Dear Uber users, the latest version of the Uber app is now available for download in the App Store! It’s been a while since I posted about our new app releases so this is a roundup of changes we’ve launched recently and some protips that we think will come in handy.
1. Check your Uber Credit Balance
Protip: Invite your friends to get Uber Credit!
We’ll always charge your Uber Credit before we charge your credit card. Now you can see your current Uber Credit Balance in the app.
2. Edit your credit cards on the go
Protip: Add or change your selected card anytime up until your trip ends!
Did your card just expire? Don’t let that get in the way of your next Uber ride – just update it directly from the app without having to re-enter your card number.
3. VoiceOver support for accessibility on iPhone
Protip: Save your favorite pick up locations and it’ll be faster than ever to get a ride!
We’re now VoiceOver compliant! This is our first step towards a universally accessible Uber app. We know that we’ve still got some work to do to make the experience for VoiceOver users just as compelling as our non-VoiceOver experience. We’d love to get your feedback, so please do write to us and let us know what we can do better on this front. SMS is also a great alternative to the app in the US – just ask our Blackberry-loving friends. ;)
As always, we’ve got lots of great things brewing here at Uber HQ and I’ll continue to keep you posted on our latest releases. And for you Android users out there, don’t worry. These changes will soon be coming to the Android Marketplace as well! Feel free to send us feedback through any of our support channels. And I love hearing product suggestions so you can also ping me directly anytime through twitter – I’m @minarad.
We’re excited to expand the Uber for Business platform beyond business travel, to include a world-class customer transportation solution, Uber Central. With Uber Central, organizations of all shapes and sizes can now easily provide on-demand, door-to-door transportation for their customers, clients, and guests.
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.
