Bookmark your favorite places on Uber

Unless you’re traveling home, it can be a pain to pick out a favorite destination in Uber’s app. It’s often easier to dig through your history than to punch in the address of a restaurant you’re visiting for the thousandth time. Uber is coming to its senses, though: it’s introducing a Saved Places feature that lets you bookmark frequent destinations, and rename them to something more memorable. Over time, the app will learn your habits and offer shortcuts to those saved spots if it thinks you’re headed that way.

The feature is available on both Android and iOS in the US right now. You’ll have to wait until later in the year if you live elsewhere. It’s surprising that bookmarking has taken so long to arrive in the first place, to be honest. Between carpooling and self-driving car plans, there’s little doubt that Uber wants you to use its service for trips to all your regular haunts, not just a ride home after a long night.
