Ride-sharing service Uber is spreading like wildfire and, as if invading cities around the world wasn’t enough, the company now wants a presence within our mobile apps.
The company is asking app developers to register in order to build an Uber button into their application.
Devs can log into the Uber app and enter their details in the dashboard to receive a line of code allowing users to directly request a driver (via The Verge).
We’ve already seen Uber integration into some services such as Cortana on Windows 10. The company has also permeated apps such as Google Maps, with Uber showing up as an option when users search for directions.

The possibilities for the pitched Uber button are interesting. Maybe an Uber button within Tinder would help love-seekers make a swift exit if the date doesn’t match the profile?
Perhaps Transport for London would benefit most? It’d sure save capital-dwellers a couple of screen taps whenever their commute is ruined.
