Editors' Review

Uber is a ridesharing app that enables you to quickly hire Uber drivers in your area, 24 hours a day, to take you to destinations near and far.

Pros

Convenient booking: Launch the app, and your location is automatically identified. Then add your destination address and choose your preferred vehicle type (for example, Economy, Premium, and Extra Seats) or whether you want to share an economy ride for a lower price.

Know where to go: After you book, you'll see your driver's picture, vehicle details, and their exact location on a map. So even if you're in a busy pickup spot, such as an airport, you'll know which Uber driver is yours.

Variety of ride options: You can book a flat-fare uberX, a more cost-cutting Uber Pool with up to one other passenger (Uber may match you with up to two strangers headed your way), or an even more affordable Express Pool -- a new option that tasks riders with walking a short distance to meet their driver at a more convenient spot for the driver, so it doesn't take them as long to get to you. Book premium options like Select or Black to get higher-end cars for more money. If you need extra seats, you can book an uberXL or SUV as well. You can even book a taxi.

Wheelchair accessible: If you need help getting in and out of a car, Uber also offers driver assistance, and wheelchair-accessible vehicles if you're wheelchair-bound.

Easy payment: Connect your credit card, Apple Pay, PayPal, and more, and you'll never again have to fish around for cash or ask a cab driver whether they accept credit cards. You can tip within the app, too, then get a receipt by email.

Rating system: After your ride, you can rate the driver from one to five stars and provide feedback on their performance.

More location sharing control: Uber now allows you to control when privacy-compromising location sharing is active. Under your location settings, select between "While Using the App," "Always," and "Never."

Cons

Surge pricing: While Uber pricing on Economy and shared rides is generally cheaper than what taxis charge, a surge in bookings raises prices -- sometimes exorbitantly -- to encourage more drivers to get on the clock. While understandable, the exorbitant fees can hit riders pretty hard.

Mapping glitches: Uber's app sometimes provides inaccurate pickup and arrival times, or it miscalculates pickup spots.

Bottom Line

The Uber app is the best ridesharing app on the market today.
