    Definitely a fan of the new app, some good work in there. The website not as much. The affordance that there is more beneath the fold is hard to see and the background is covered in moving images and blurs making the text hard to read.

      I know there are some apps out there, but I actually want to make an app called "Blind" or something like that which gives visual designers a way to hold up their phone and look at a screen the way someone with variable visual imparities would see it.

        I love this idea. Perhaps it could work in a similar way to Sim Daltonism? I regularly design with the color blind simulation running on one monitor and the design program itself running on the other.

    Can't scroll, video is flashing and dropping frames (on a brand new MBP), and I generally don't know where to go or what to do on the site.

    I'm sure the app is fine, but wtf is this site?

    Legible text! For years, Uber's type styles have been way too small. I dig this update if only for the reasonably sized type.

      haven't checked the app yet, but on the web the text is super small & hardly readable on all these backgrounds :(

    The website is trash. Unusable my Macbook Pro Mid 2015 full equipped and the page is just stuttering like hell. Who does that to their clients? I mean the uber user is not really someone who has a lot of money right?! So nobody has a powerful computer to visit such a site like this sorry. The design and the effects are nice but the stuttering makes the website useless for the most visitors...

    Hmm, not so sure about the new application. Doesn't feel like Uber to me.

      Just curious, what does it feel like?

        Maybe I just need to get used to the new design language. I really loved the “luxury” experience Uber had in their previous application. But I also do understand that Uber choose to be more accessible for everyone and for that reason changed the design.

    I made a prototype a couple of months ago for a Tesla app that allows you to request a self-driving vehicle called the "Model A". This Uber app has a few of concepts and ideas that I also implemented such as context aware cards. I'd love any feedback on the prototype. (this was just a high-school project)

      Cool prototype. If you're looking for feedback I'd say...

      I'd zone in on crucial UI elements and what they are supposed to represent vs. how you are representing them. For example your button doesn't look like a button. A bar across the screen will need more visual affordance to drive home its action if it doesn't look like a traditional button. The cancel button looks disabled too.

      Can my current address already be filled out for my pickup location?

      Why do I have an option to continue to "on trip" shouldn't this be automatic?

      Same for next screen. Also, on trip screen should I be able to change my destination? Because using the same text input to display it makes it seem like I can.

      Just some general feedback man, good work.

        Hi thanks so much, in regards to the continue button, that was more a limitation of the prototyping software and also me wanting to allow users to properly engage and scroll through the information before continuing. There are a few UI quirks and I agree completely about the button design. Maybe I had too much focus on being minimal and geometric at the cost of functionality and that is definitely a lesson learned. The app needs some polish and maybe making a framer prototype would better express my ideas, not limited to screens and transitions but rather transitions between states and elements. Regardless I still got an A+ ;)

    The app is going to be hard to use with it being all slow and jerky. I'd consider this a pretty serious experience issue.

    Seriously though, looks like they've put in some serious work and it's packed with a lot of interesting functionality. Some of the in-ride stuff feels like a lot but finding good meeting points for riders/drivers is an A+++ idea.

    Also cool to see such a big company iterating quickly. Although, i suppose they have to in order to keep on top of competition.

    A little detail that you may not notice if you're American, but they actually did an awesome job of localising the website. It uses places and names that sound natively Danish to me - much better than the standard localised language versions you usually see.
