Taxi Magic is a new taxi booking app for iPhone that lets you hire a taxi by pressing a couple buttons on the touch screen. You do not need to call a taxi service and speak to the operator. The application instead connects you directly to the taxi routing systems and lets you book your journey from there. You can further track live updates of where your currently taxi is and when it will arrive at your location.
How doe it work?
- 1. Launch the TaxiMagic app on your iPhone.
2. Your iPhone determines your location and presents a list of nearby cab services. While some listings are only phone numbers, others fully support Taxi Magic’s ordering system.
3. Choose one of the supported cab companies and enter your exact street address.
4. TaxiMagic then takes you to a status screen that will alert you as soon as your cab is dispatched and show you the driver’s name.
5. Track the cab location and how far away it is on the status screen.
