Re: Everyone likes to hate on Uber

In the UK, there are restrictions for taxis, which are allowed to pick people up on the street or at taxi ranks, but not so much for minicabs which have to be pre-booked. Most of them can be booked via apps, and Über's app was by no means the first. There were even some of them around 15 years ago for Windows Phone before the iPhone was a thing.
