Travelers and city-dwellers in the U.S. have been using Taxi Magic (free) for a few years now, and a new update to the app released today makes it even easier to book a taxi with a few taps.
Taxi Magic 3.0 has a redesigned user interface for faster booking of taxis. If you know that you'll be needing a ride later in the day, a "Pick Me Up Later" button lets you schedule a taxi well in advance for worry-free transportation.
The developers of Taxi Magic, RideCharge, Inc., have also improved the taxi tracking feature to provide faster updates and more attractive visuals. If you frequent certain favorite locations, they can be named and saved in the app for even faster booking in the future. And in those cities with a variety of taxi fleets, you can now save your favorite taxi companies for future use.
The "Magic Booking" service provided by the app is now available for 75 taxi fleets in over 40 U.S. cities, while tap-to-call fleets are available in over 4,000 cities in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.
