Uber 2.0 – #TheRideAhead

It’s a new model year, and we’ve given the Uber iPhone app a thorough overhaul. Don’t worry Android users, your app is next in line for a tune-up. Here’s what’s under the hood of Uber 2.0 for iPhone:

New Paint, Chrome Rims

We’ve rebuilt the entire app from the ground up, with a focus on making it more beautiful and intuitive. There are redesigned icons, animations, receipts, and menus but the changes aren’t just superficial. The Uber app is finally as elegant and comfortable as the ride.

No Sticker Shock

Rates for all Uber car types are now easy to find and understand. Enter your pickup and dropoff location to see an instant, accurate estimate of how much your ride will cost. We’ve also added clear, simple explanations of rate exceptions like Surge Pricing.

Street Smarts

It’s even easier for your Uber driver to find you with our new foursquare-powered location database. Get picked up at a bar, restaurant, or landmark—even if you don’t know the exact address. Uber 2.0 also automatically remembers your most frequent pickup locations, like your home or office.

Pedal to the Metal

We’ve optimized our networking stack (our engineers assure us that’s a real thing.) Now Uber 2.0 provides fast, accurate, real-time availability on all Uber vehicles.

Tuning the Transmission

We’ve also added iPhone 5 support, fixed bugs, added a full screen map view, streamlined credit card management, and improved social media integration and promotions.

Learner’s Permit

New to Uber? We’ve created a shiny introduction to the app to let you know exactly what to expect on your first ride.
