Well, it was just a matter of time wasn’t it? To the delight of hackers, now there’s an app to dance away from Uber surge pricing.
Here’s how it works: It’s a separate but similar-looking app that you fire up instead of Uber (it taps into its network). A map appears. Above, it lists your current surge pricing. Below is a button that says “Goodbye Surge.” Tap it and a purple pin will drop you at the nearest no-surge zone.
Goodbye Surge! Catchy! SurgeProtector is free and is available on iTunes.
