To find a taxi in New York is not that difficult if you know where taxis usually congregate and travel, but for people from out of town it could be very frustrating experience and mobile apps may be even more important in big cities.
TomTom has announced a new service back in September 2012 in Amsterdam that allows travellers to call for a cab from specific terminals.
The idea turned out to be effective and TomTom has now introduced an iPhone application that allows people to use the service.
The app allows you to call for a cab based on your location, informing you how long it will take to reach your destination.
The application also allows you to learn about the driver and later ordering your favorite one, leaving unpleasant experiences in the past.
It is still unknown if TomTom will expand its services outside the Netherlands.
