It’s new and already famous. The app is for car renting purpose. When you ask for a car using Uber, the app will determine the approximate time needed for its arrival.

But, wait, there’s one little drawback – the thing that you may need an iPhone 6 or 6 plus to avoid compatibility issues. Still and all, it’s a great app.
No, it didn’t slip out of my mind earlier. The reason why it bottoms this list is because it has recently become ubiquitous, meaning, now this app will have other apps integrated into it.
