What Can it Do?
With Cab4Me, users can find the nearest free cab available right from their current location and link directly to the corresponding service to get the fastest dispatch time. The extensive database of cab companies has been pre-screened to ensure that only quality cab companies are used. Customers are also able to add new companies to the review process with a single click. This application can even help determine which companies accept credit cards and which companies are handicapped accessible.
Cab4Me is currently available for the iPhone and the Android operating systems in a light version and several other platforms are currently in development. While the service is still limited in suburban and rural locations, this should improve as more companies are added to the list. The simple user interface is easy to use and features a fully integrated mapping system. Even when the system is offline, favorites and recently called companies are remembered and can be accessed.
This award-winning application means that there is no longer any need to stand on the street and flag down a cab. With Cab4Me, users can get cab service anytime, anywhere and can even share the information with friends by copying the number to the menu clipboard and sending them the cab company’s phone number. The user-friendly format includes public cab companies, private hire companies, and limousine services in their database. After using a cab company, users are encouraged to vote on the service to help make sure that only valid taxi companies remain in the database.
Viewers can read company reviews, ratings, other important details with Cab4Me. The database is updated daily and cab companies can easily register and create a free company profile with a defined service area to increase traffic. For areas that are not already covered, the application will provide a web search to find any cab companies available; this will only improve as more users access the service. Cab4Me continues to work within the industry to standardize automatic ordering for users and cab drivers; as the technology becomes available it will be added to the service too.
Users will never again experience the frustration of not having a cab available when they need it. By simply pressing a button and making a phone call, a cab will arrive directly to the desired location. Soon, in fact, with automatic ordering, even the phone call will become an obsolete step; users will be able to simply order the cab through web access on their phones. Finding a cab from any location or manually entering an address for a future cab order has never been easier, due to Cab4Me.
