How Uber works: Stacking Technology

Let us discuss quickly how Uber works. First, let Uber know you need a ride to book. Then Uber asks you where you are, and where you want to go? Then, Uber detects a driver nearby and tells you when this driver is coming to pick you. Uber asks you how it went after your trip is over. You rate the trip and the amount is paid to your credit card automatically.

This is the general process of booking a ride and using the application. However, when you want to create an android app like Uber you must know how Uber works and on what technology it relies. It will make an easier way to cross while developing an app.


Uber was called a location-based app from the start. To make an application like Uber you must have

Data on geographic information has become much easier to obtain. Google's Location APIs have been used to geo-locate an Android version of the Uber service.

They can manage underlying location technology intelligently while meeting different development requirements in the implementation of location-based features.

When the system is recorded as a routing tool, the Maps app and any other mapping software would be presented with directions on a mobile interface.

Push notifications and messages:

Uber provides a couple of updates when you schedule a ride: the first the time when a driver is coming to pick you and the second authorize your request if the driver is less than one minute away. They also send you the details of the car and the driver, so that it would be easy for you to take the ride.

Payment Process:

Uber uses a system with no money. You can either pay by credit card or a debit or use a promotional code. This excludes all transactions of human-to-human capital, including tips, from the calculation. There are certain criteria that businesses will meet before receiving card payments. You may find differences in the payment system, as in Pakistan it is different and in the US it is different.
