Cabbie Pro helps you make and cancel taxi cab bookings in Singapore.
** New Android 4.0+ design! **
This is a completely revamped version of my free Cabbie app - an app that thanks to your love & ratings made it into the Straits Times Digital Life list of top 100 apps in 2010!
Cabbie Pro is an improvement over Cabbie in every single way. Here's what's new compared to Cabbie:
+ Supports ComfortCab, CityCab and SMRT Taxis
+ Current and Advance booking
+ Designed for Android 4.0+ phones
+ Search for addresses by SMS & Google Maps
+ One click booking hotline dialing for all taxi operators
+ Dozens of user-interaction refinements
+ Automatic cloud backup
+ More features on the way!
All of the above improvements for the low price of just $2.49! That's less than the cost of just one cab booking!
Cabbie Pro allows you to add & save addresses for your often used locations and then send taxi cab booking SMS messages for those addresses to Comfort Cab, CitiCab or SMRT Taxis. It also helps you find addresses to make bookings. And if you book a cab by mistake or don't need it anymore, no problem! You can even cancel the cab booking using Cabbie Pro!
Go ahead and buy Cabbie Pro - for the price of a Kopi-O!

GOOGLE MAPS TIP
Did you know that in Google Maps, you can long press anywhere on the map & Google will try to find the address at that point? You can use this feature to quickly add new addresses to Cabbie.
a) Open Google Maps
b) Zoom to the place you seek. If you want the address for you current location, then use Google Maps' 'locate me' feature
c) Long press on the map location till a bubble pops up
d) Click the bubble to open a screen with address and other details
e) Use the 'Share this place' menu option to share the location with Cabbie Pro
This works best with addresses that contain postal codes. Check screenshots for how it works.
AUTOMATIC CLOUD BACKUP
On devices running Android v2.2+, Cabbie Pro does automatic backup to cloud. This stores your saved data on Google's servers linked to your Google account. The data is automatically restored when you re-install Cabbie Pro on a new phone or after doing a factory-reset of your current phone. The backup/restore process is transparent to the user. In fact, it is transparent even to the developer!
For this feature to work, users must ensure that they've enabled the 'Back up my data' and 'Automatic Restore' settings under "Privacy" options of your your phone's System Settings.
Cabbie Pro requires a few Android permissions to operate. Here's why:
* Send SMS - To send booking SMS to taxi operators.
* Receive SMS - To allow search of locations by SMS.
* Coarse Location - Get approximate location for more accurate search via Google Maps.
