@chrissaad a beautiful and much needed update

@chrissaad congrats on the launch!
@chrissaad Great to know. One of my major pain points is the access points for saved addresses. I have saved my apartment address, but my apartment has 6 different access points. I would like to have the flexibility to drag and drop the pin during the home/work address setup so that I can instruct the drivers to the right access point. This avoids multiple phone calls before every pick up and instructing the driver to come to the right exit.

@chrissaad Are pickup locations always just decided? How does that work? Am I gonna have to walk three blocks if I'm on floor 50 of a building?

@iambarronroth you can update the pickup location before booking

@vij2288 @chrissaad talk about an edge case! For now, maybe save some text snippets that you can send quickly/automatically once a driver accepts your ride request?
@adamlaz How is that an edge case? Home address is the most frequent pick up location. I call the driver every time before the pickup. And saving your preferred addresses is a one time operation

@vij2288 the different pickup points for the same address :-)
@adamlaz Of course! Work addresses aren't easy, I am sure, you'll be surprised to know the call volume right before a pickup.

@chrissaad As someone who uses Uber on a daily basis! This is so far the best UI update that Uber has done.
Balaji S. SrinivasanHiring@balajis · CEO of and Board Partner at a16z.
@chrissaad Really nice looking new interface. A late comment, but the one thing that I've found (which you've probably heard from others) is that the GPS reading for the initial location often isn't fully accurate. As such it may be important to prompt the user to explicitly enter their initial location, or else their car goes to the wrong address. Other than that, no complaints so far after a few weeks of use.

@chrissaad nice. Eats needs some work but rest is a big step.
