Uber launches standalone app for food delivery in major U.S. cities


The popular rideshare company is updating its approach to food delivery. UberEATS launched as a standalone app in its first U.S. markets Tuesday.

The app made its initial debut in Toronto but is now expanding across North America in a handful of major cities, according to TechCrunch.com. Thus far, neither New Hampshire cities nor the Boston markets are on the list.

Where UberEATS is operational, customers can order delivery off the full menus of hundreds of restaurants, or they can choose to get something off an Instant Delivery menu, which can be ordered from more quickly.

The standalone application lets customers browse through the popular dishes from area restaurants or search by cuisine and meal (breakfast, lunch, dinner). Users can also search for specific restaurants by name if they’re supported in the app. The app will show customers an estimate for how long it takes for orders to arrive and allows users to track their driver's progress, similar to Uber proper.
