In simple terms, after the most recent updates released for the Uber app for Android, the app no longer works on BlackBerry 10 smartphones. I have tested this on both Passport and Classic, and the results are the same.

Before this time, the Uber app ran well without hitches.

My guess is that recent updates to the Android app has broken some compatibility with BB10. Sigh. Will this be resolved? I don’t know, but I hope so. I hate carrying two smartphones around, but I have to do that now just to be able to use Uber on the go.
