Ratings and Reviews
Half-baked and basically lame
While you can book a cab with this app, the implementation is only partly done. It claims to be able to show you where your cab is on a map - but in reality it can only confirm that you've booked a cab - but can't show you where it is or tell you when it will arrive.
The app is buggy - obviously rushed to market in a half-assed attempt to compete with Uber and Lyft.
Since the app can't do it, I had to call the dispatcher to find out when my cab would come - oh, yes I did get a notification - but it disappeared in seconds before I could read it - and since it didn't use iPhone notifications or SMS, it was gone for good.
Clearly this app isn't ready for prime time.
BTW, the this is the same app in a different skin as the Yellow Cab Seattle app - and changing the graphics doesn’t improve anything.
Doesn't Work - Do Not Use this App
I tried to reserve a morning pick up with this app. The night before it appeared to successfully take my reservation for a 6 am pick up. The next morning I'm waiting for my taxi and nothing. The app would tell me that I had a reservation but would provide no details on when I would get picked up. When 6 am, the time for my pick up, came around, the app still showed that I had a reservation pending but no status. I attempted to call Orange Cab but after OVER 10 MINUTES of being on hold and no one ever picking up I hung up. I ended up cancelling my "reservation" and drove to the airport. I will not be using this app or Orange cab again. On a related note the app is sophomorish at best. It looks like a couple of college interns put it together. The design is very poor and usability is marginal at best.
Great cabs great app
Easy to book a cab and I really like the ability to see the Cab’s location on its way to me.
