If you’re living in a metro area, then you likely take a taxi somewhere at least once a year. If you’re in certain metro areas, you do this every single day of your life. And if either of those is true, then you know exactly how big a pain in the butt these experiences can be. With that in mind, may we kindly present to you Taxi Finder by Unleashed.
The app makes it easier than ever to find a taxi, get an estimate, and order said taxi directly from your iPhone. For more information, you need only to slide on down below the break!
Concept and Functionality
The core concept behind Taxi Finder is not only in the name, it’s actually incredibly simple. What if you could pull your iPhone out of your pocket, just before you leave your office, and order up a taxi. You just hit a tab, look for a nearby company, and then make the call right then and there.
That’s more or less exactly what you’re getting here with Taxi Finder, and it works wonderfully. You can perform a search within a given mile radius for cab companies, and then select the one you would like to use.
If you’re unsure how much it’ll cost you to go from Uptown to Midtown, pop in an address to receive an estimate.
It’s fast, it’s effective, and works quite smoothly. Our only complaint would be with the app’s knowledgebase: For certain metro areas, it has either zero taxi companies available, or not nearly as many as actually exist. Still, for a fresh-faced application, it fairs well with the more sturdy city centers.
Design and Interface
Is Taxi Finder the best looking, easiest to use application we have ever seen? No, it is not. That being said, it’s incredibly functional, and is hardly a bear to navigate. Simply put, we’ve just gotten spoiled.
We’re used to apps that provide us big, cushy interfaces that guide us without thinking from one end to the next. We feel that concept could easily be applied here to Taxi Finder. Though, its current tabular layout and wealth of tables is hardly an issue, as is. In future updates, we might like to see a more original take on things, is all.
And it’s certainly hard to argue with the value that Taxi Finder is presenting! For no money down, you can enjoy all that Taxi Finder has to offer. And with that at the forefront, we can’t help but recommend the application to the seasoned taxi-taker.
If you’re eager to make the entire process simpler, this is a great place to start. And with a free price tag, Taxi Finder really cannot be beat.
Taxi Finder requires iOS 6.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
