@chrismessina - I know someone who released the same app, though it showed real-time prices estimates (not just whether surging), and he received a cease & desist from Uber so he took it down. Either it was the actual price estimate that was the real problem, or Uber just has too much other things to deal with now!

This is amazing since Lyft and Uber don't show surge pricing anymore
