Uber’s next destination: Windows Phone

Tired of hailing down a cab from the curb? Simply pull out your Lumia, request a pickup with a screen tap and your very own driver will appear in minutes, courtesy of Uber.

Uber is a technology platform that connects riders with safe, reliable and seamless transportation in cities around the world with the single touch of a button. Download the Uber app for Windows Phone, register and then get started.

Forget asking people, “what’s the address of this place?” Since Uber uses your phone’s GPS to detect your location, it’s easy to use the on-screen map to mark your pickup point. Then select “request” and your driver will be en route with an estimated ETA.


All that’s left to do is sit back and wait for the driver. Uber will text you when the car arrives. Alternatively, check the map location of the car within the app.

Every Uber driver partner is fully insured and background-checked, ensuring you are experiencing the safest ride on the road.

Uber provides value at every level and a price that works for everyone’s budget, starting with the more affordable uberX all the way up to the more upscale uberBLACK.


Uber is truly a cashless experience. Once your ride is complete, all payments are handled electronically (charged to your registered credit/debit card), meaning you never have to carry a penny.

Afterwards, your receipt is automatically emailed to the account on file.

Uber runs on all Windows Phone 8 and 8.1 smartphones, from the Lumia 635, Lumia 930 and Lumia 1520.

Download it today from the Windows Phone Store – for free.
