Updated Uber iPhone app (1.0.39) released

The latest version of Uber (1.0.39) on iPhone is about to hit with some neat features you’ve been asking for!

One of the biggies is the updated ability to type and search for an address, rather than solely relying on the pin. We know this has been a sticking point for some users with GPS issues and we’re excited to make life a little easier!

Other updates include: embedding the ‘Forgot Password’ page, so that you’ll be able to more quickly get your hands on any stray passwords; the ability to enter a promotional code directly on iPhone. There’s also a special (belated) Easter treat with a secret new function for Facebook users.

First to find the Easter egg gets $10 credit – email us when you’ve got it: support@uber.com.

We’re excited to get your feedback on the new features, so please hit us up with any suggestions / questions on Facebook, Twitter or email. Oh, and if you really like the app, we’d so greatly appreciate your rating in the iTunes store!
