Allows users to book fast and convenient rides when needed
Uber for Android is a mobile app to access the Uber ride finder service, allowing you to call for and pay for rides easily based on your current location. Uber is a popular ride-finding service which hires locals to use their own car to transport you. The Uber app allows you to connect with local drivers in your area and easily pay for your rides directly from your PayPal balance. Drivers will receive a notification and automated directions to find you based on your location, so you never need to provide your address or even make a phone call! The app manages all of this by itself.
When you first open the app, you are presented with a map showing local drivers nearby to let you know if using this service is possible in your area. In most cities, you will find that there are a number of Uber drivers who will happily serve you. You can compare fares based on your current location and desired destination. Choose whether you are willing to share your ride with a stranger and receive a carpooling discount or if you want a private ride. You can even choose the type of vehicle which you want to pick you up, all from the app. Once you have agreed on a fair rate, the app will pay the driver directly from your linked PayPal account and provide the driver with your coordinates based on satellite positioning of your phone. Ordering a cab has never been easier!
