Lately I’ve found myself using Uber exclusively for traveling around when I need to. But I’ve also found myself waiting just a little bit longer to see if that surge price goes down. It just seems that there is always surge pricing, and it’s so annoying trying to refresh from the application because you never know if it’s a new price or the old one. But I’ve come to accept it because I trust it more than I trust regular cabs and it’s also a lot more convenient. So if I am in front of my laptop now I can use this, because I iz developer, right?
That being said, as a lazy person it pains me everytime open my phone, open the Uber app, type my destination, and see the estimated price, only for my inner, responsible, cost-cutting, fiduciary-self to end up taking the bus all the way home. Jae Bradley
You’re not the only one…
Quite fun and also pretty good. Also check out these other nifty Uber projects to play around with that I discovered on ProductHunt:
- Order your next ride from your Mac menubar with Fastlane
- Get your friends to your location with Teleport
- Get an Uber directly from Slack
However, ever since this news broke out, I am seriously considering ceasing the use of the app and joining the #DeleteUber movement. Just waiting on the independent review outcome.
