How to Set Up Uber on Android

So Uber just launched in Ghana. With all the rave going on, some folks have still not heard about it. Some folks are even hearing about Uber for the first time in their lives.

The Uber app is quite simple to set up (as any other should be). So in this tutorial, we’ll guide you through a step-by-step procedure on how to set it up on Android and iOS. We chose these platforms as they are the most popular ones.

Setting app an account is quite easy. Simply follow the steps below to begin.

First, if you are Android, visit the play store to download the app. Here is a link to the app on Google Play Store (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ubercab&hl=en)

On iOS you can visit the App Store (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ubercab&hl=en)

Enable location on your device

Enable Location

Upon installation, you’ll be presented with a screen as shown below. You must enable location services in your phone settings first. The app works based on both the user and driver’s location hence it’s a must to have location enabled. This is relevant as this enables the driver to see your location and get to you on time. Also it gives you the chance to see your driver as he drives towards you on the map. This is a really cool feature.

 

Register an account on Uber

 

Uber login

You need to register an account in order to use the app. Your phone number is required during the process to verify your identity. After verifying, you’ll then able able to log in to the app.

Alternatively, you can sign up using with your Google or Facebook account. The first thing you will notice after logging in is a map (obviously). The map shows your current location and a pin, which you can move around the map to a specific location you want.

 

Requesting for a ride

 

You can request for a ride by simply entering your location in the search box. If there are any Uber cars available, you’ll have the option to request for a ride, make payment via your credit/debit card or opt to pay in cash when the driver arrives.

 

After the ride

There is an option to give recommendations to the driver after you arrive at your destination. I believe this helps to give some credibility to the driver and a high rating.
