Uber Launches Windows Phone App, is BlackBerry up Next?
Windows Phone is getting a lot of promotion these days, especially after the 8.1 Update has started rolling out. Fitbit has recently launched their official app and now it’s Uber’s turn, the famous ridesharing app.
Uber, the popular ridesharing service, has recently released its official app for Windows Phone users and you can download it for yourself by following the direct link at the end of the article. The on-demand ride service is currently available in more than 150 cities in 40 countries around the world.
Now, those who have a smartphone powered by Microsoft’s mobile operating system, can find the app in the Windows Phone Store, as well. Prior to the release, Windows Phone users had to access Uber through a mobile web site, but the new app will allow the app to behave naturally and natively. Uber said the following on their official blog at the time of release:
“Choice is a beautiful thing. That’s why today we are excited to release a new Uber app for the Windows Phone, available for download now in the Windows Phone Store! Previously, Windows Phone users accessed Uber through our mobile site, but starting today, users can connect through a native app that is optimized for the Windows Phone platform and reflects the complete Uber experience.”
You can now use Uber on your Windows Phone to request a ride and get picked up within minutes. No reservations are required and no waiting in taxi lines. You can also compare rates for different vehicles and by adding a credit card to your secure account, you will never need cash on hand.
