You deserve the perfect partner


Moto X Play is your perfect match. With more than a day of battery life1 and water-repellant design2, you can do more —day and night, rain or shine. Its 21 MP camera takes stunning photos, and the full HD screen displays sharp images & videos. And with Motorola Shells, you can express your unique style.

The Moto X name has been associated with Motorola's flagship smartphones ever since the original X was launched over two years ago. The Moto X was a good phone that was let down by its poor camera and battery life, though its successor fixed the battery problem to a large extent.
2015 represents a dilution of the Moto X brand, first with the launch of the 'super flagship' Moto Turbo, and more recently, the unveiling of not one, but two new Moto X smartphones - the Moto X Play and the Moto X Style. The latter is closer to Moto X's flagship ethos, while the Play is a mid-range offering by today's standards. So how d…

5 Ideas for First Free Uber Ride

This is a repost from an Old post about the first ride ideas. Earlier I have just written few lines of ideas, Now I am going in some details.

Some Background Story When I signed up for Uber, I had no need to use it because I was so well versed in my routine that I didn't need anything else for commute and if needed Uber seemed costly, so I talked to few of colleagues to join Uber and get more referral credit (at that time uber used to give credits of Rs 600/- for each referral) and then try using Uber.

First Ride with Uber With some friends, in one fine evening we decided to go to Chat shop near by, where we used to go time to time in friends car but this time I proposed to use Uber, everyone agreed. I booked a ride, A MERC appeared for pickup in 5 mins (We can track time and route of our cab in app and know some other details like licence number, model, driver name , his rating etc. ) with a smile on driver's face and surprise on our. We reached to our destination which costed…

Uber could start same-day delivery service for retailers

Uber is trying its hand in many fields from restaurant food delivery via uberEATS, gold coin deliver in India on festival, ice cream delivery by name uberICECREAM, fresh vegetables delivery by uberFRESH, uber is trying all the option to leverage its existing platform and existing driver partner network all over the world.

Uber drivers are mobile partners, they are always on the run and moving people around the city, so this time Uber came up with Idea of same-day delivery of goods from local retailers. Recently Uber introduced merchant program in some cities, this is the extension of the same program.

Uber Merchant Program
According to TC article:  Uber has been getting deeper into the delivery space of late, with investments in delivering fresh produce with UberFresh, as well as the recent launch of UberEats in Chicago and New York (already available in Los Angeles and Barcelona), letting users order curated meals for lunch and dinner that are delivered curbside by UberEats drivers.

On-Demand Startups Consider Outsourcing Delivery With Uber

There are plenty of startups coming for on-demand service like Uber. There is a link which lists most of the Uber for X like services. People need things on demand where food is the first thing people want when they are hungry and they want it on time. Most of the startups are trying to figure out to meet this on-demand situation and some are already found solution in Uber itself and they are in talk with Uber for delivering services in the neighborhood.
On-Demand Companies Consider Outsourcing Delivery With Uber What has not helped is the bidding war for drivers among the glut of on-demand startups that has driven up the cost of delivery — there’s Postmates, SpoonRocket, Washio, Uber, Lyft, Sidecar, Sprig, Doughbies, BloomThat, Shyp, DoorDash, Munchery and Instacart, among others. Some companies are offering driver bonuses and higher paychecks to lock up the market for drivers.

How to Re-authorize or unlink paytm with Uber India App

Having and active Uber and Paytm account is good, but if something goes wrong from either Uber or paytm side, you the customer suffers a lot. You can't book your ride back home, you can't book ride to airport, railway station. It becomes annoying to have such messy technical app. We cannot predict what may happen in future but we may be ready with some preparation.

Uber does all account sweep for security measures from time to time, if it finds any suspicion, it blocks account, put hold on booking a ride, asks for re-verification of ID or payment method. Recently Paytm was hacked and some hacker were able to make payment in paytm from some other account, hance Uber took security measure and put hold on some accounts.

How much I will earn by attaching my car with UBER or OLA

This is very common question now a days in India. Some of the Quora posts hints that OLA/UBER drivers are earning in lakhs per month which is not the case now.

Competition is getting tougher, 100's of new drivers are joining the platform. Now they don't get enough rides sometimes only then UBER/OLA pay them minimum amount for the day.(Already decided amount based upon business).
