* Uber just launched “Saved Places” feature to bookmark most-used locations
* Add name or emoji to destination to help you remember it
* Update your Uber app to find the new feature

We’ve all been there. You’re in a rush to call an Uber but have to scroll through your phone to find the exact location you’re heading to. Or, you’re heading to your friend’s place for weekly Bachelor night, but can never seem to remember her address.

Uber’s now giving us a way to get to our favorite places faster, with the introduction of the “Saved Places” feature. The feature will allow you to bookmark your most-visited locations, by assigning it a name or emoji. You only have to enter the full address once. The next time you open the app, you can scroll through your Saved Places to find the destination you’re looking for, all easily categorized by you.

Uber says your most-visited Saved Places will also pop up as shortcuts on the app’s home screen when you launch it. The app already does this with certain destinations, like the address you set as “home” or “work.”

To access your Saved Places, make sure you’ve updated to the latest version of Uber. The feature is available now for U.S. riders on both iOS and Android, with expansion to international markets later this year.
