ZabKab: Get a Taxi on iPhone
Nothing is more frustrating than needing a taxi to get home or place of work and not being able to get one. Sometimes you may get lucky and get a cab fast. But having to wait a long time to do so is not fun. ZabKab is an iPhone application that could change that. It lets you notify cabs to come pick you up in no time.
ZabKab has a pretty simple user interface. Just push the “Hail” button, and you are on your way. Taxi drivers using the ZabKab Driver see you hailing from a distance and can find their way to your location using GPS. Not all drivers may be using this service. You could always encourage local drivers to do so considering that ZabKab does not cost them and can boost their business.
ZabKab is free at the time of this writing. Just provide an email to register and get started. The idea has a lot of potential. The more people use this, the better ZabKab gets. It can be a life saver in cities like New York.
