How Much Should You Tip Your Uber Driver?

Uber is rolling out a new function in its ride-sharing app to allow tipping. The company says in-app tipping should be available to all drivers in the U.S. by the end of July. Similar apps like Lyft already offer tipping. But how much should you tip your driver?
