Getting a taxi in London can be difficult; finding an empty one, one willing to go south of the river ‘at this time of night’, or simply one not driven by a man whose thoughts for most of the journey centre around how he’s going to dispose of your corpse is no easy feat in a city that’s constantly expanding. Unless, of course, you have an Android app for that! And this little beauty is, quite literally, the latest…
It can seem that everything in Britain revolves around the capital these days; but in the case of the upcoming London School Sports Day, now renamed The Olympic Games, that’s exactly how it revolves and you’d better get used to it. But if you thought grabbing a cab was tough now, just imagine how much worse it’ll get once the Games kick off.
Well, if this cab chaos is likely to affect you, you can at least give yourself an advantage with Cab:app. Free to download, cabs can be hailed at the touch of a button without the need to stand in the street waving frantically like a berk, full details of the driver, his/her badge number, registration and real time location are sent to you to provide security and lessen the chances of imminent murder, those with disabilities can specify their needs, you can opt to cab-share to save money, and you can even provide feedback if you end up with one of those oddly and overly opinionated, Daily Mail reading, drivers. You know the type we mean.
THE BOTTOM LINE
With a clear and concise interface, Cab:app is a simple solution to a growing problem. Simplicity itself to use, completely reliable and undeniably convenient, once you’ve tried it you’ll never call a cab any other way again.
