    PROGRAMMING LANGUAGES

    The most common programming languages that are used by Uber for the back-end developments are Node.js, Python, Java, PHP, Ruby on Rails. Know what works for you and approach your developers to implement it.

    GPS

    For location and tracking facility, Uber uses OpenStreetMap API, which is applicable for both iOS/Android. But few developers use Google Maps and Google Location Services API for Android applications and MapKit or CoreLocation framework for iOS devices.

    IN-APP PAYMENT INTEGRATION

    Use payment gateways like Stripe, Braintree, Paytm, PayPal mobile SDK to support all type of in-app payments. When you take Uber, it uses Braintree.

    PUSH NOTIFICATION

    Uber uses Google Firebase for Android and Apple Push for iOS phones to integrate push notification feature.

    SMS

    Cloud communication platforms like Plivo, Nexmo, Tropo can be used. But when you focus Uber, it uses Twilio for SMS sendouts.
