Uber riders do not have to make stops manually during their trips anymore, as Uber has updated its service to allow passengers to add multiple stops. 


All the riders would have to do is to tap ‘Where to?’ on the app, and select the ‘+’ box. Users are allowed to add up to three destinations, as well as adding and removing stops during an ongoing trip. After the stops are added, the fares will be displayed.


The introduction of the new feature would mean that drivers do not have to depend on a rider’s directions. This would also mean that drivers don’t have to update the destination along the way.



Travel media company Lonely Planet has introduced a new mobile app called Trips by Lonely Planet. The app provides modern travelers with a simple and intuitive way to share their travel experiences by uploading content directly from their camera roll, and create stories to describe their adventures.


On the app, travelers can ‘Like’ trips, find new trips, follow other travelers, and more. Lonely Planet intends to make Trips an independent app that provides users with access to great shared experiences, as they typically get on social media to do research when planning a trip. Not only that, writers and editors from Lonely Planet contribute to the app by curating top suggestions for trips.


Trips by Lonely Planet can be downloaded for free on the iOS App Store and Google Play.


More information on the app can be found here.

While you’re still patiently waiting for Hyperlapse to finally arrive on Android, Instagram has decided to fill the void by releasing Boomerang, an app that lets you record one-second videos. Nothing more, nothing less.

At which point we should mention that Boomerang’s one-second videos aren’t technically videos, as they are actually composed of a burst of five photos, which are collated and subsequently played forwards and backwards repetitively to achieve a so-called ‘boomerang’ effect.

Because Boomerang doesn’t have a dedicated, self-contained feed, users will be required to share their GIF-like videos on Instagram, Facebook, or other social networking platforms. In fact, you don’t even need to create an account to use Boomerang.

Boomerang is currently available for both iOS and Android devices for free.

Most of the internet user are stuck in the following infinite loop, are you?
