Lyft is similar to Uber, in that its functions are carried out on its application for your mobile device rather than on a website. However, you can visit www.lyft.com to obtain more information about Lyft. This tutorial will help you get started with Lyft by learning how to download and install the Lyft app on your mobile phone. We'll then show you how to verify and create your Lyft account.
We'll be doing this on an Android-powered phone, but for an iPhone, the process will be very similar. Remember that Lyft currently only operates on Android or Apple mobile phones. The app does not support other smart phones or Wi-Fi devices such as an iPod touch.
That's it! You're all set to start using Lyft! To request your first ride, visit our next tutorial, how to use Lyft.
