Saw this neat list on an article called, "Uberpreneurs have arrived." I thought it was worth sharing. Oh, look, Harry is on there.
Apps that help drivers find the best rides
To maximize earnings, drivers must constantly race to parts of the city where they guess the highest paid rides will appear, thanks to in-app surge fares, local events, and the natural flow of the city's population. Most drivers also use multiple ride-sharing services, bouncing between apps in search of the highest fares. It's time-consuming and dangerous, especially while driving.
