As you may imagine, the app lets you enter in a starting address and end address and then see what the cab fare may be, as well as the shortest route. (Quick, we need a mobile version of this for tourists! )
Fare estimates are based on rates for cabs in the area, and include pick-up rates and by-the-miles costs, as applicable.
This map app is actually one of many great entries in the contest, several of which are featured here. Other apps include a “World of Football” app, a data viewer app, a pharmacy finder and more.
But the cab fare is my favorite, maybe it’s yours too?
