All you have to do is type in your location and destination, the app will then proceed to look for a cab nearby and send you an SMS along with the driver’s details such as number plate, name and hand phone number. You can also view the location of your cab, as it is heading towards you. they also send you a reminder to check your confirmed driver and taxi number and tell you not to get n the cab if it doesn’t match.
