Trump last week attended a meeting on disaster preparedness at the Federal Emergency Management Agency headquarters in Washington. Hurricane season is descending once again on the Caribbean, while Puerto Rico is still struggling to recover.

The other salient trade-off is that Uber Lite will have the standard map-based interface for the app turned off, which means users can't fine-tune their location unless they choose to toggle this feature. Uber has also confirmed that the Lite app will be able to work better in areas with bad or unstable network connectivity. The app will continue rolling out across India this summer, and in other countries around the globe later this year. The app is sized lesser than 5MB and is compatible with phones running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and higher.

The White House said the daylong summit would also include a working lunch and a larger meeting involving aides to both leaders. South Korea, meanwhile, appeared to have been blindsided by Trump's change of heart on war games.

Uber is claiming a 300-millisecond response time on the application and is also claiming support for all Android phones. "The result is Uber Lite", said Deng. And the more you use Uber Lite, the smarter the app gets, learning where you go most often and surfacing those options for you to tap first, so you don't have to type your destination every time. If it can't accurately pinpoint your location (due to Global Positioning System or network issues) it will offer you nearby pickup points that might work for you. You can also choose to adjust your pickup location on the map. That now includes a stripped-down Lite app "built in India" and "designed for the world", which occupies the equivalent storage space of "just 3 selfies".

The U.S. this year committed to give Jordan more than $6 billion in aid over the next five years, up from $1 billion annually. Jordan's economic malaise has been exacerbated by regional crises, particularly in Iraq and Syria, which have hurt trade.

Guided pickups - Uber Lite guides users through the request experience by detecting their current location, so minimal typing is required. Ola Lite is even smaller sized at just 1MB, and runs on devices with Android 5.0 Lollipop and above. Even though in this version the map option is not visible by default to the users they will have the option of toggling it on or off if they wish to see the actual route. The app also comes with the option of "Share Pass" which lets users ride at original fares and no peak rates.
