Uber, for those that did not know, allows you to get a taxi, private car, or rideshare from your mobile phone by connecting you with a driver in minutes. You can use the mobile app in cities around the world. For those of you on Windows Phone, the official Uber app has finally arrived.

With the official Uber app, you can request a ride and get picked up within minutes. On-demand service means no reservations required and no waiting for a taxi. You can compare rates for different vehicles and add a credit card to your secure account so you never need cash in your wallet. 

The app lets you set your pickup location on the map, be connected to your personal driver, and check the progress of your ride at any time. When you arrive at your destination, you will receive an email with a receipt.

“An entirely new and modern way to travel is at your fingertips. We’re thrilled to unveil our new app. Now you can enjoy the complete Uber experience on your Windows Phone,” Microsoft stated.

The app is free and you can download it via the download link below. In a future update, the app plans to have fare quotes, shareable links with trip map and ETA, along with the ability to split your fare with friends.
