cab4me (Android Application)

cab4me enables you to easily call a cab to any location worldwide. You do not need to know the number of the local cab company. You do not need to enter or even know the address you want to be picked up at. You do not need to place a call. With cab4me you can order a cab to your current location with a single click.

cab4me integrates the Google Maps component provided by Android. This enables the user to select their cab destination by simply moving the map. Cab4me shows places where cabs usually wait as overlays and uses geocoding extensions to find and display addresses.

cab4me uses the location awareness of Android (GPS and cell-based), to make it easy for the user to order a cab to his current location without the need to know the exact address or to know the name of the cab company.

cab4me integrates the phone’s contact list to select pickup locations. It can initiate calls to a cab company and uses notification services to inform the user about the current cab order status.
