On June 11th 2015, Uber launched an unexpected new mobile app….This time, it’s a game. It’s called “UberDRIVE” and it allows iOS users to “test-drive [their] city knowledge“. However, don’t call in sick for work just yet….Currently, this app only contains data & challenges for San Francisco - So unless you live there, or you magically know the city like the back of your hand, You might want to wait until they expand the app to your part of town.
Here are some app screenshots, Courtesy of Uber:
The game awards you points for taking efficient driving routes, identifying common landmarks and destinations, and more. Your points will eventually allow you to unlock nicer cars and new dispatch zones throughout the city to expand your cities reach.
