We've got taxi apps for KL now already but what if you're traveling to NYC? Flagging down a cab is tough on its own already. ZabKab wants to increase the odds you'll actually nab one by turning your phone into a homing beacon for free taxis nearby.
Hit the "hail" button in the app and your phone will beam your location to drivers within five blocks. The app just launched in New York with 1000 cabbies reportedly already looking for passengers. ZabKab's developer says it has plans to roll the service out to other US cities and internationally.
