Icabz Mobile App: Pre Launch Special




I was recently contacted by some young entrepreneurs who have started off a brand new app called iCabz. After speaking to the guys for a little while, it was clear what the story was; they were sick and tired of having to call a cab drunk and explain to the “brother” on the other side of the phone where they were after a heavy night out. They had the bright idea to make it simple and easy for students and normal humans alike, to grab a cab quickly and easily without the hassle of spelling your name, repeating your phone number, and negotiating prices. It’s so simple it’s funny:

Step One: Unlock Phone,
Step Two: Open iCabz App
Step Three: Click 'order cab'.
Step Four: Continue talking all the drunken nonsense you were until the cab arrives.




So how does it work?

So as a user of the app, all you have to do is search ‘iCabz’ on App Store, Play store or Windows, download it for FREE and enter your mobile number and a name. That’s it, you’re ready to grab a cab! As soon as this is done, the app will use your GPS signal to find your location and show you on a map the closest registered iCabz drivers to your location. You simply hit, “get cab” and the closest drivers receive your location and are asked if they want the job to which they have about 20 seconds to respond, so you’ll have a cab pretty quickly. No more of that waiting around in the freezing cold for ages.
I gave it a trial run this week and it worked relatively well with the only issue being the GPS being off by about 100 yards which is not the end of the world given it’s a soft launch and these minor bugs are still being worked out. The thing I liked most about this app (being and Econ student and an Indian) was the competition based model. With so many cab drivers being contacted with your location and details, you always get the best price which is always handy for students.

The other great thing about this app is that as soon as you order a cab, you can see how far the cab is from your location using the integrated map. This is also a great tool for getting friends and delinquents home safely. We’ve all sad to the cabbie, “Get my mate home safely” and hoped for the best, but with this app you can track the location of the cab until it has reached its final destination.

The third standout feature is something I think everyone will love. We all have had that cabbie who should be a philosopher instead of a taxi driver and maybe you want him to be your personal chauffeur (your closest attempt to be a baller), well now you can. You can save your favourite drivers and if they are within proximity when you order the cab, they will get the first message.

I did voice some concerns over the safety but these guys have covered all the bases. All of the taxi drivers are registered and monitored, so it’s completely safe and it’s not just jumping into a random unmarked car.

I know I know, you can’t wait to hear when this thing goes live. 

The download is available now but will run as a simulator until the live release date when it will automatically update and you will be able to use it. So go and download it right now and see what all the hype is about!

Also check back in a few weeks when our dedicated app tester in Birmingham has a full review and feedback for the app after one month!

This is an awesome idea and is ideal because it helps you save a lot of money whilst making your life a lot easier! This is definitely going to be another tip to add to the wealth of tips in the Save and Create Money eBook we just released!

Give it a go and let us know what you think!
