Uber Returns to Windows PhoneBy: Josh Wolford - July 24, 2014
On-demand ride service Uber has just (re)launched on Windows Phone, meaning Windows Phone users won’t have to call rides via the mobile site anymore.
Uber says the brand new app is “is optimized for the Windows Phone platform and reflects the complete Uber experience.”
“Users will be able to open the Uber app on their Windows Phone anywhere in the world – whether in the United States, India or France – and seamlessly request a safe, reliable ride at the touch of a button.The availability of the Uber app – in more than 150 cities and in 41 countries – and the international adoption of the Windows Phone means that we can connect with the Windows Phone community like never before,” says Uber.
Uber initially launched on Windows Phone back in 2013, but was yanked after only a couple of weeks.
According to the Windows Phones blog, “Uber for Windows Phone is a fast, full-featured native app that makes ordering your next ride super easy.” Hopefully, as the first attempt drew quite a few complaints. Windows Phones Central says that the app will be adding some features soon, including fare quotes, shareable links with trip map and ETA, and the ability to split fares with friends.
You can grab the app here, Windows Phone owners. The app will work on all Windows Phone 8 and Windows Phone 8.1 devices.
