Those dreaded battles in traffic trying to flag down a passing taxi will soon be a thing of past horrific nightmares. ZabKab is the first TLC approved app for hailing yellow cabs.
The app comes in two versions — one for drivers and one for passengers. The passenger version lets the user hit a “hail” button that signals cabs in a four to five block radius. Passengers can also see cabs move on the map in real time; a yellow cab on the map is free, a gray cab is taken.
The app runs on GPS and gives drivers a precise location of where the passenger is hailing from — even which side of the street they are on.
