One of my daily challenges as a commuter is waiting for a cab. More so, even if I get a cab, chances are they'll either reject you (if your destination is out of their way, which I find ridiculous) or they'll ask for an extra charge (because the roads to your destination is congested, as if that's new here in Metro Manila).
That's why when I discovered GrabTaxi, I was more than ecstatic to try it.

GrabTaxi is a new app for both Android and Apple users that helps you get a taxi without having to negotiate your route, or your extra charge. You just need to pay an extra Php 70 on top of the fare for the service. ;)
I have used GrabTaxi at different times (in various locations).
To use GrabTaxi, you need 1) a GrabTaxi account and 2) internet connection for your phone
Here's how to use it:
1. Enter your current location and your destination. Having a Foursquare account or your GPS activated will help the app find your location.
2. Once GrabTaxi has found you a driver, the taxi's plate number, driver's name and photo will show on the app. It will also give you an estimated arrival time of your driver to your current location.
