We live in app-centric age where almost every industry is making an app for themselves, making “there’s an app for everything” a reality. One such industry is the Taxi industry. For the past year, before smartphones took the world, getting a Taxi could be such a hassle. Sometimes, you might even need Superman level whistling skills just to land one.
