If you are fed up of having to wait for personal transport and their usually slow traveling times then this taxi app is the perfect solution for you. Uber is a helpful app which enables you to find a ride for any part of the city that is going to pick you up from your location. With this app, you can travel in a comfortable and luxurious manner, being driven to your location by a certified driver. You only have to enter the destination that you want to reach and the app will do the rest. Uber boasts of an intuitive user interface and a simple design and layout which makes navigating the different features of this app an easier task.
Before you can get a ride using this taxi app, you will have to tell it where you want to go. A small box is located on the top half of the app where you can enter the address of the place you wish to go to. The app will aid your search by providing you suggestions for the address you are typing. Once your destination has been identified, Uber will use the GPS of your phone to detect your location on Google Maps. It will then chalk out a route from your location to the destination you want to reach.
Having plotted the route, Uber will instantly calculate the fare for the journey and list down three options for you namely Auto, Go and UberX. Each of these options has a different fare and provides a different vehicle for your trip. For instance, Auto is the most economical option which offers up a rickshaw for you to travel in. The Go and UberX options, on the other hand, provide a car. You can view the details of a ride option by tapping on its icon. The ride options differ from city to city though and the options you find in one city are not available in the other. After selecting your ride option, you will have to select your payment method then hit the button located at the bottom of the screen.
Uber is different from a taxi or cab as it does not require you to go and search for the vehicle yourself. Instead, the vehicle you have chosen is going to come to you and pick you up. With the help of your phone's GPS, this taxi app will determine your location and then ask you to confirm the spot from where you want your driver to pick you up. You can use the map to specify your location and then hit the Confirm Pickup button located on the bottom of the screen.
After you pickup spot has been verified, Uber will provide you a list of the cars that are near you and can reach you quickly. You will be given details of the driver and the car, along with the driver's photograph. Moreover, you can track his progress on your phone's GPS all the while. A phone number of the driver is also provided that can be used to communicate with him. After the ride, you will get a receipt from Uber and you will be given the chance to rate the services provided by the driver.
