Uber just can’t stop steaming ahead, even despite recent criticism. The company today announced a partnership with Sprint that will see its app preloaded on many of the carrier’s Android phones.

If you buy a new Android phone from Sprint, you’ll probably find Uber right on the home screen along with a $20 free ride for signing up with your new smartphone.

Sprint will also be pushing the app via its “Sprint Zone” application for users that don’t have it preinstalled on their devices. Those who want the special Sprint discount can find out more here.
