iPhone App Hails Nearest London Taxi

The future is now, SU Londoners! A new app available for iPhone users is hoping to streamline the process of hailing a black cab in London.

If you’re roaming the streets of London and need a taxi, the LDNtaxi app – available now in the app store – calculates your position using GPS and alerts the nearest taxi driver that you’re looking to hail a cab. You can then watch in real-time as the cab approaches your location, and a confirmation page displayed in the app proves to the driver that you are indeed the passenger that electronically hailed their cab.

As this app was only unveiled last week, the developer is still in the process of soliciting the participation of more cab drivers – but early response from both passengers and drivers has been very positive.

The app is free at the moment – snatch it up while it’s still a steal!
