Uber launches web app, order car service from BlackBerry, Windows Phone


Uber is a service that lets users book rides from a private car service in 25 different US cities. The company offers iPhone and Android apps that let you request a car from your phone — but now there’s also a mobile web app aimed at people that don’t have a supported phone.

Uber mobile website for BlackBerry

The m.uber.com website is designed for BlackBerry, Windows Phone, and other mobile devices. Theoretically you could also use it on an iPhone or Android device if you don’t feel like installing the native apps.

You can login to your Uber account using the new web app, request a car, or save favorite locations.

To be honest, the mobile site doesn’t look as pretty as the company’s native apps. But if you need a car fast and you happen to be a BlackBerry user, it’s a nice option to have.
