Uber is the no. one taxi booking startup which operates millions of cab worldwide. This app now has an API which is being used by many other applications. This blog explains about Uber API, it’s applications and also about our SpotnRides taxi API, it’s documentation, and many more. Let us see one by one.
What is Uber Taxi API?
Application Programming Interface(API) is a set of instructions or procedures that enables an application to access the data and features of another application or operating system. This is the simplest definition of an API. Uber API also works similar to a normal API. Normally, an API is used in third-party applications.
Even the taxi app Uber uses Google map API to access the Google map for navigation and location data. Same way, Uber API can be used by other applications to access Uber.
But, the cost and effort required for integrating Uber API make many startup apps and on-demand apps to go for alternatives.
SpontRides is a taxi app which is prebuilt with all fundamental features and closely resembles Uber. We have made this app for budding entrepreneurs who wants to get into the taxi market at an affordable cost.
Now, we have got a brand new API for SpotnRides. We know that there is demand for taxi app API’s and our existing clients felt that they can further improve their business by partnering with third-party apps using API.
SpotnRides API has a few documentation and each part can be used for particular work. Let us see about it now.
SpotnRides driver and rider API
This API can be used for some innovative on-demand services. It has data which includes payment, ratings, commission, etc.
Our rider API can ask for a trip request. This API can be used in any third-party apps where users can ask for a ride with just a tap. The third-party app will get more users if this API is placed inside it.
SpotnRides business API
This API can do operations and handle data for billing, user management, accounts, payments, etc. Startup apps that require billing and payments functions can use it.
