Taxis are out of fashion
Uber is an efficient way to travel. Why chase after a taxi when it can come to you?
Travel reliably, quickly and securely
Beat the taxi rush and travel smarter with Uber. It’s a hassle-free way to get to your destination.
Say hello to a brand new form of traveling. Uber is a cheaper, more dependable way to travel. This useful software allows users to search for drivers in their area, book a ride, and wait for it to show up. You can track your driver’s location in real-time, so you know when and where to expect him. All of this without leaving the comfort of your seat.
Travel without worrying about cash or card issues. Payment is via PayPal or a linked credit or debit card. You can see an estimated fare before you confirm your ride. There are no hidden charges or surprise fees at the end of your journey. It’s transparent and you have the power to confirm or cancel a ride. Keep a note of your journey for reference; Uber send an email receipt copy to you straight after your ride.
Choose from up to 5 different car types. Fancy something special for a big event? Book the more glamorous uberX. Need a quick ride home from the office? Go for their economic option. Uber knows that every ride is individual. That’s why they give you a choice over which car you want to take your journey in.
The application will continue running while you are using your desktop or tablet. This is only the case when you have an ongoing journey. Reminders and pop-up notifications will tell you when your driver is waiting for you. Carry on writing that important email until the very last minute.
The biggest problem with Uber is the surge pricing, but that’s typically in cities with a low Uber driver presence. If you live in hubs like Los Angeles or Dallas, it shouldn’t happen often
Where can you run this program?
This particular version can only be run on Windows 10. Uber is available on iOS, Android, and Blackberry phones and tablets.
Is there a better alternative?
No. Uber is unrivaled as a software. It is used all over the world and trusted by most people. A similar but less popular program is Lyft, which functions in the same way.
Uber for Windows is an impressive program. It offers the same quality as the mobile version, but perhaps not as easy to navigate.
Should you download it?
Yes, if you already have a Microsoft account, as that’s a prerequisite to use Uber. It’s also not available in all countries so check this out before trying to download it.
