This morning, after a heads up that there was an update available for Uber from a friend who uses a BlackBerry Q5, I launched the app on my Passport. The following screenshot was what I got:
So, I tapped the “Update Uber Now” button, and the browser launched to load the Google Play page for Uber. Bummer. Of course, Uber isn’t available officially for BB10. I installed it from an extracted Android APK file. Naturally, getting updates would be a pain in the neck, and that is proving true. I shall have to find a way to extract the updated APK file to enjoy the updated version.
For now, without the update, Uber is useless on any BB10 device. Can Uber work out an arrangement to have the app available on Amazon Appstore? That should be easier to make happen than to ask for a native BB10 app ti be developed.
