GetTaxi Shaves 10 Seconds Off Cab Order Time

In a bid to gain ground in a very crowded market, London-based black cab app GetTaxi has re-desgined its iOS and Android apps.

As well as giving it a bit of a facelift, the company has improved the search function for greater accuracy of pick up and drop off, while also adding auto-complete for popular locations nearby. It now has a collapsable menu in place of tabs for different app functions and the companys CEO Shahar Waiser says the changes will shave between 10 and 20 seconds off booking a ride.

Whether youre after a black cab, minicab or private car, London has app companies in their droves looking to service your needs. Transport for London recommends no less than eight different apps for people to try.

With an App Store rating of 4.5, Hailo is one of the best around, while Addison Lee sits near the bottom with just 2.5 stars.
