Here is some additional information on the features that are new with the iPhone app version 2.0:
As mentioned above, we have a new bookings tab:
Map: Moving the pointer on a map (below) to the pick spot of your choice, we even tell you what the address is!
You can also search for a known address through this map screen…
Contacts: You can pick an address from your contacts in your iPhone
Favourites: Once you’ve had a chance to save some addresses (see below), you can just pick an address with a click!
Once you’ve entered your to & from addresses, just select the pick up time and then click Estimate Price to get a quote
After you’ve done that, Click Book and once you’ve signed in, you’re done! Just sit back and wait for the confirmation.
Addresses: You can now save addresses as favourites, such as Home, Work or your favourite restaurant or bar so you won’t have to type them in the next time you want to book a ride to or from there.
Journeys: Make a lot of bookings that are regular? Now you’ll be able to save a journey, such as Home to Work, which will allow you to make a booking in a matter of seconds!
As safety and customer service are our focus, you will be able to rate a journey (and the cab company that provided it), to help us make sure we only work with the best companies!
