Some Updates to the New Uber App

Uber app

When in need of a ride, Uber has become the go-to choice for many people.

At first I had a hard time seeing the value of the Uber App. This could partially be due to having a negative experience. After testing it out some more, I finally saw the value.

I recently updated the Uber App on my iPhone and soon after, I received an interesting e-mail letting me know how to get the most out of the new app.

I always wonder if app updates offer any major changes or just fix some technical issues.

The e-mail led to a link to with 10 tips.

Here are a few of my favorites, which I feel might be most useful to most of us. (I’m not sure if all of the tips are new things which we can do with the app or if Uber is just highlighting them due to the update.)

Add your home & work address:I know that when I use Uber my home address has always been there. My guess is that this is a reminder that you can add addresses that you go to frequently as a shortcut.

People are the new places: This is pretty cool. If you sync contacts with the Uber app, you can make a person a destination. Basically another shortcut…

Perfect your pickup: If your plans change and you need to “change your pickup location, tap on the pickup location to change your address”.

Say you’re on your way: “Share your ride status so friends can follow your ride live on a map, and see when you’ll arrive.”
