Uber’s app for the express logistics industry has a bunch of bugs
- by admin
The Uber app for logistics is a mess, and Uber itself says it is working on fixing it.
Uber is working to improve the app’s performance by adding more data sources, according to a blog post from Uber’s engineering chief, Mark Papermaster.
“We’re actively working on improving performance, especially on the frontend, with more data coming in regularly, including real-time data and real-timing,” Papermaster wrote.
Papermaster also said that Uber is also looking to improve its mobile app’s responsiveness.
Uber recently launched an Uber-branded app for mobile-first logistics companies that are looking to move quickly through the logistics process.
But Uber is still struggling with the fact that it doesn’t yet have a way to send a text message when you’re moving through a city.
“The Uber app has a number of issues,” said David Ewing, founder and CEO of the startup eXperience Group.
“Some of them are not easily fixed, some of them require manual work, some require manual configuration, and some require that the app is updated for the new messaging service,” he said.
“Uber doesn’t want to fix these problems.
It wants to fix them fast and easily, which is why it has built an Uber app, which we’ve been testing and improving for a while.”
Uber says it’s working on making the app better, but the company isn’t sharing the details.
“It’s very frustrating to us,” Ewing said.
Uber says its app has some issues.
“You can’t send a SMS message to someone you’ve only just met.
You can’t use a map to navigate your way around,” said Ewing.
“There’s no way to get directions.”
Ewing also said Uber isn’t fixing the bugs in the app that are preventing it from sending text messages.
Uber’s new app is a real-world example of why Uber is focusing on building better tools for its app, not fixing bugs.
Ewing noted that the company is also working on more automated systems that can handle large volumes of data, which will help Uber deliver more accurate data for its business customers.
Uber said that the improvements Uber is making on the app will take up a significant portion of its time and resources.
“Our engineers are working on a ton of these improvements, but it will take some time,” Ewings said.
The Uber-owned eXPERience Group is working with Uber to improve Uber’s mobile app.
Ewings is also encouraging other startups to start their own apps, so that Uber can build better tools.
“I think that’s the future of the Internet of Things,” he told TechCrunch.
“All the different devices, all the different sensors, all of this is all being built together to make it a much better system.
This will give people much more information, and it’ll give people better choices.”
