First launched in India, this app seems to be Uber's last attempt to remain relevant in Asia. Previously, Uber had sold its business in China and Southeast Asia to its competitors.
Uber only puts essential features in its Lite app. Uber Lite measures only 5MB for download, compared to regular Uber apps that can reach 181.4 MB.
Uber also gives Lite a more simple design to maximize efficiency. Maps that previously appeared when the app was first opened are now optional to keep apps running smoothly.
Uber Lite also uses the GPS position of the user to estimate the user's intended address, so users do not need much typing. This app also stores the most popular locations in the city so when the user is offline then there is no internet connection required to use Uber Lite.
