Uber has been banned from London, but you can still use it.

That's because the ban hasn't gone into effect yet. In fact, it might never do, because Uber has appealed the decision.

Regardless of what happens with Uber in the capital, it will continue to operate in many other UK cities, including Edinburgh, Manchester and Sheffield.

The controversial taxi-hailing app is extremely popular, despite the company's numerous problems.

That's because it's easier to use, more convenient and cheaper than black cabs and many of its rivals.

Due to the nature of the app, most people don't spend a great deal of time exploring its menus. There seems to be little need to if you simply want to book a trip from A to B.

There are, however, a number of useful Uber features you might not know about.

We’ve rounded up a selection of the best Uber tips and tricks. Click on the gallery below to start browsing.
