Meals on the go
Uber is widely known for offering transportation services, but the company decided to optimize their operations by joining the on-demand delivery space. UberEATS offers a convenient way for ordering food from a participating restaurant and enjoying it from wherever you are.
Get your favorite meal delivered to your doorstep.
The free food delivery app is available for download from the Google Play Store. Once you have it installed, you will be required to set up an account. Creating a username will help relay your location to the app (of course, you will need to give permission to let it access your device location).
You’ll be required to fill in delivery details such as building, floor or apartment. If you prefer it that the delivery person does not come up to your doorstep, you can click on the option "meet at vehicle". Once you’ve set up the necessary details, you can now browse restaurants near you to see the meals they are offering. Apart from having various options to choose from, you also can compare prices and the time it will take for a certain delivery to arrive at your location.
The design is great with a well-laid user interface. With the menu at the bottom, it’s easy to move around the app. The home button takes you to the main page where you can view special offers, popular restaurants near you, and offers among many others. You can use the search button on the menu to look for a restaurant of your choice or a particular meal. An order button takes you to a page where you can view your past orders as well as any upcoming orders. Finally, you have a profile button where you can set your preferred payment mode, see your marked favorite meals, and make changes to your saved details.
Save or earn with UberEats
Here comes the fun part. The food delivery app lets you cut spending costs on your meals. When you invite your friends, you get a code. When your friends make an order and add your promotion code, they get a discount. If you’d like to make an extra buck, you can apply to be an uber driver in your location.
Track your delivery
One thing to like about the app is that it gives you an estimated delivery time for the food you ordered. You will also be able to track how far the delivery person has moved about since you made your order. All of this is possible with the map provided by the app.
Is there a better alternative?
Other apps offering food delivery services include Postmates. A quick visit to their site and you’ll learn the areas covered. Apart from food, Postmates also makes other deliveries, including. Doordash is another alternative to Ubereats. This app also lets you order food from any location as long as the restaurant is supported by the app.
Where can you run this program?
The free food delivery app can be run on mobile devices running on Android 5.0+. The current version 1.217.10005 occupies 34mb of your device memory and has a content rating of 3+ years. The app is also available for iOs devices.
Ubereats is a lightweight app that helps you conveniently order your favorite meal from almost anywhere. The design is well laid out and given that Uber already has a transport infrastructure, deliveries are easy and people are also likely to trust a brand they already know.

Yes. This app is ideal for those who are on a tight schedule or want a good meal without much effort.
