The companion app that goes along with Sony’s Smartband Talk got a nice update this week. It brings updates to the timer, calendar and smart badge. Now you are able to change the time for a countdown timer, without needing to have your phone with you. Which can be a very helpful thing to have.

This isn’t the first app to get Uber integration, as we’ve seen Google Maps do this as well. StubHub has now added the ability to call for an Uber within their app. So you can get a ride to the game and back home, even easier. It’s a pretty great idea, and it’s going to be interesting to see what other apps Uber gets integrated with, perhaps even StubHub’s competitor GameTime?
