Uber has introduced the concept of Uber Lite. Uber Lite mobile application is relatively simpler than the already existing Uber application. The feature that really stands out Uber Lite from Uber Cab booking application is the memory occupied by the Uber Lite. As the name implies “Lite” is in the literal sense of memory space occupied by the application.
And Random Access Memory (RAM) occupied during the mode of operation. First of all, it is quite memory friendly. Secondly, it does not take up a large portion of your Random Space Memory (RAM) during the operations. Uber LIte occupies only 5MB of your memory space.
How Uber Lite is Different From Uber?
The frequent notifications from your system (cell-phone) about low memory space won’t trouble you any more. The size of Uber Lite is equivalent to the size of a couple of pictures resting in the cell phone gallery.
Frequent installing and uninstalling application. And even deleting important files just to install a new mobile application is pretty common with every one of us.
So, Same goes with Uber Application as well. With application size of about 5MB. You are free to keep your important files intact.
- A normal Uber application needs a space of 180MB whereas Uber Lite requires less than 5 MB of memory space.
- Another important feature is reduced typing. The user simply doesn’t have to type their current location. Your location will be automatically detected by GPS. Hence reduced typing.
- Another feature includes is the language of app operations.
- The company is still planning to include a feature for offline cab booking.
Why Uber Lite?
Apart from the advantage of relatively low memory occupancy and less RAM required for the operation. There are some other advantages of Uber Lite as well. Few of them enlisted below
1. Reliability:A weak internet connection is more painful than low memory space on your system. A memory space can be fixed for once but rebooting your phone simply can not fix poor internet speed.
As per the tech point of view, it largely depends on signal strength at the very moment. But what if you urgently need a cab, and the signal goes down? A poor internet connectivity is simply not a problem for Uber Lite.
Company’s efficient engineers have designed the application in such a manner that the application works pretty well in poor signal connections.
2. User-Friendly Data Usage:In this digital age of mobile communication. Yet, many users are still quite concerned about their data exchange rate while using the internet.
The mindset still prevails today where a user might end up thinking Uber uses a large share of their data. Any solution? Uber Lite really is the solution.
Low memory space, better performance in poor signal strengths and now even data friendly approach. So, you simply don’t have to worry about excessive data consumption while booking your ride.
The app is fabricated in such a way that it doesn’t uses much of your internet data pack.
3. Easy to learn:As described above. The app was designed for the better user interface. And to unify much of application’s features. The main aim of the company was not to confuse the customer base with algorithms that made this app.
But rather it was to make ride booking process much more easier, user friendly and time saving. The app is quite simple to operate and allows you to book your ride in just four taps.
That means you’re just four taps away to book your ride. Quiet Simple. Right?
