    Attention - "UBER says you can ask for tips now".

    Newby's Net Last Week - Reality Check

    Uber needs to add a tip option which could make them more money

    Uber is making a mistake by not taping into that revenue stream potential by not adding a tip button. I have skimmed the Lyft forums and they don't get tips either even with the tip option button in the app.
