If you’re the type of person who is constantly on the move, a jetsetter perhaps, you’ve probably used or heard of Uber sometime in the past few years. The service and its applications allow users to connect with private drivers in select cities around the world.
Simply select your location and when you want to be picked up and sleek vehicle will be there for you. Cars available range from Lincoln Town Cars to BMW 7 Series or a Mercedes-Benz S550 sedan. Bad news if you’re primarily a Windows Phone user and want to use the service since the app has been unpublished from the Store.
It beats taxis by a long shot if you’re traveling and like the convenience. When the company released an official app back in late March it was seen as a success. But things turned sour immediately for a lot of users the moment they started using the app – it was really nothing more than a webpage wrapped up in a mobile app.
Users noticed and quickly shared their dissatisfaction in the Store ratings for the app. It’s average was 2 stars, nothing any official app should have. The app has since been pulled and if you head to the Store link for the app you'll see it's no longer published.
We’ve reached out to Uber for clarification for why exactly the app was pulled. In the meantime, try an third party alternate to satisfy your Uber needs, like Uber Towncar. Ninja edit: You can also use the mobile site m.uber.com
