While Uber was made to deliver you around, the app has been expanded to UberEats - delivering your favourite food to you!
Our rating: 5/5
Available on: Android and iOS.
The app is just as quick, easy and useful as Uber, except that you get a bite to eat at the end.
After a quick and free download of the app on any app store, the process becomes quite simple...
Step 1: When you open the app, you will need to register your profile (if you have Uber, you can use the same details and your information will be automatically copied) and plug in your location address. This address can be changed, and other addresses can be added as well. Side note: it is useful to enable your location setting on your phone when using this app, but it can function without it).
After sorting out your address, you can start looking at restaurants that use UberEats. You can choose how you would like to sort the restaurants, and even search for a specific restaurant, meal, or type of food.
Step 2: Now it's time to browse the registered restaurants. The app will divide restaurants into categories such as "Popular Near You", "Under 30 Minutes", etc. Otherwise, you can continue to scroll for a view of all the restaurants. After you have used the app a few times, it will even give you a "Your Go-Tos" section by detecting which restaurants are common in your orders.
Step 3: Once you've chosen a restaurant, Click on it and you will be able to view the full menu. Click on a meal if you want to find out more about it and, if you like what you see, select the required meal options and click "Add to Cart".
Step 4: After picking a meal, you can go back and continue browsing while your meal is saved to your cart. Look around for drinks, other meals and deserts, and repeat the previous process to add it to your cart. Once you have finished with your order, click "Check Out" and it will take you to your full order and address for you to confirm.
Step 5: Once you have placed your order, it will take you to another page with a map indicating your location and the restaurant's location. First, you will wait for the restaurant to accept your order and will be notified when they have and start preparing your food. All of this is shown with a progress bar so you can track the order.
Step 6: After your meal has been prepared, the app will tell you that the courier is on the way. When this happens, you will be able to see the car/bike moving towards your location (just like Uber). You will also be able to see the driver's information and be able to contact him if there is any problem. The app will notify you again when your food is about to arrive.
Note: If at any point during the order you need any assistance, just click "Help" and a list of problem options will appear. In some cases, you will be invited to Uber Chat Live to sort out your problem - which is very quick and helpful.
Next time you order, you can go to your history/upcoming orders to find that one meal you liked last time so you can order it again.
There are additional settings you can view on the app in "Settings".
Once you've received your food, its time to eat. Don't forget to rate your food and your delivery at the end for feedback!
