Recently launched by Uber is the new UberEATS app available to iOS and Android users in the US. The app essentially enables users to have food delivered and tracked through their device.
UberEATS is currently available in cities such as San Francisco, Los Angeles, Houston and Chicago. It will soon be available to New York, Paris, Austin, Melbourne, Atlanta, Seattle and Washington D.C.
Users of UberEATS can search through menus at various restaurants, or even by particular cuisines. If users are in a hurry to get their order, they have the option to order through the Instant Delivery Menu, which guarantees delivery in under ten minutes. In other cases, the app provides the user with an estimate of how long their delivery will take.
The food service option by Uber was previously available within the Uber app, however it was recently changed to be a standalone app. Chetan Narain, the product manager at UberEATS said in a recent blog post “each deserve their own home”.
