Results of a search for a taxi route in New York City using the PC client. Notice the suggested route and fee listed in upper left.
The TaxiWiz Mobile app as seen using Nokia N95 8GB device. Ideally I'd love to see this app taken a couple of steps further, for example, how about integrating it with Google Maps mobile? Since I have Google maps on my device perhaps an option to see the route on a map would be a nice offering. I'd also like to see an option to call a cab company or search for local cab companies... this app could be HUGE!

"Playman Extreme Running looks great and plays really smoothly. It's addictive - I'll play this again and again."
Imaging - BitCycle / "PullFace Image Manipulator"
