Uber updates iOS app with push notifications for price surges

Posted Mar 3, 2014

Uber CEO Travis Kalanick announced that push notifications are coming to the company’s app. The push notifications will indicate when there are price surgeries. The feature has been added to replace SMS messages.

The messages will include real-time information around the company’s controversial pricing system. Uber will be adding the feature to the Android app soon.

Customers in the U.K. can now pay for rides with PayPal inside the app, which is a feature added to the U.S., French, German, Italian, and Netherlands version of the app last November.
