Kabbee, a free iPhone app launched last week in London, makes an automatic search for the nearest cab, sends it directly to location of the passenger, and even pays the fare.
The innovative new service, which enables people to find a quality minicab wherever they are in Greater London, has already signed up 4,000 licensed minicabs in the London area.
After registering with the service and linking their account to their credit card, users simply need to enter their destination to instantly obtain a range of quotes along with estimated waiting times, reports the Telegraph.
The smartphone’s in-built technology tells taxi firms precisely where the fare is, and the driver offering the best quote is immediately dispatched to pick them up.
Passengers can even use their iPhone to pay for their journey via their bank account if they find themselves short of change.
Similar versions for Android and BlackBerry phones are expected in the near future.
