Uber app for Android not working any more on BB10

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.

The existing installation on the Passport now shows this when launched:
Uber on BB10 run
Before this time, the Uber app ran well without hitches.

And this is the error that I get when I try to install the Uber APK file on the BlackBerry Classic:
Uber on BB10 install

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.

  1. Use the UBER Mobile Website for the time being, it works great and is a little more stable than the previous solution with an Android App.
    Easiest is to save the link to your homescreen m.uber.com

  2. On my BB Passport, I go to m.uber.com and sign in with my credentials and receive an ERROR message.

    Please download the Uber app or visit http://t.uber.com/support to request access to the mobile Uber site.

    OK
    I then go to http://t.uber.com/support and SIGN IN. I then get an error message (white screen)

    {“error”: “invalid_client”}

    Trying to set this up on the Passport has been UBER frustrating. I could have called 50 taxis by now.

    Any other suggestions are appreciated.

  3. I found out the same thing in May 2015 when I tried to update the Uber app on my Q10. I spoke to Blackberry Tech Support and they were of no help. The Uber mobile website I pasted on my browser only works half the time. I am back to calling cabs. I am considering buying an iPhone, but hate the idea of abandoning the qwerty keyboard.
