Uber, a mobile car service app, surprised its customers recently by using its mobile service to deliver ice cream in 33 cities around the world for one day. While the wildly popular service left a bad taste in some disappointed ice-cream lovers mouths—the demand way outpaced the supply—it did bring the app a lot of attention.
Available for iPhone, Android, and Blackberry, this modern taxi service is currently available in nearly 40 cities in North America, Asia, Australia, and Europe. Uber allows users to order sleek cars, SUVs, taxis, hybrids, and even motorcycles in select cities. Professional, licensed drivers man the wheel, so there’s no question about safety and direction mishaps.
Users can also track the arrival of their car, receive a text when the car arrives, charge the service to their credit cards for convenience, and get an e-mail receipt for the order. The savvy traveler can even hop from Uber city to city and use the application to pay for cars without ever having to exchange their currency.
