Cabulous – iPhone – Free
Cabulous is basically a mobile phone app (on both sides the taxi driver needs to have a smart phone as well) that allows the person getting picked up to find the taxi that is closest to them or that they like the most (you can literally see the different taxi drivers and if you have a favorite one close by you can pick that one vs. someone else). Once you pick the cab the second big part of Cabulous is it allows you to move around, say it starts raining and you want to go into a shop a block away, it will show the driver your change of pickup automatically. Once you are picked up, Cabulous is done, you are now on a standard taxi ride.
