We’re very happy to announce the newest release of Ride Smart, the best way to get an Uber on Windows Phone! When you enter your destination into Ride Smart, you can see how much each Uber option costs – even when there’s surge pricing. Then, tap the car you want and we’ll send you to the Uber app so you can request your ride!
What have we added in this release? Foursquare and Swarm integration! You won’t find this on iOS or Android.
- Ride Smart’s destination search page has been Foursquare-enhanced to show you the top sights and picks in your current city. Whether you’re traveling or near home, Ride Smart makes it easy to explore with Uber.
- Sign-in to your Foursquare or Swarm account and we’ll show you which of these top sights and picks your friends have visited.
- And, if any of your Foursquare or Swarm friends have recently checked-in nearby, we’ll also show you where they are and how long go they checked-in. Just tap the their name to find out how much it’ll cost to Uber to them!
Also, don’t forget that Ride Smart’s search feature is powered by Google Maps. Unlike the official Uber app for Windows Phone, you can search for destinations by name and address. Plus, you can long press any recent destination or place recommendation to create a Live Tile on your start screen! It’s a great way to pin to start your home and work address, or any favorite place.
We’re very happy that so many of you have started using Ride Smart since our initial release last year. Stay tuned, there’s more to come!
