[prMac.com] Odessa, Ukraine - BeSoft today is pleased to announce Taxi INT 1.2.1 for iOS, an update to their Travel app that lists more than 1,200 taxi companies throughout the world. Constantly expanding, the database currently includes 15 different countries and more than 100 major cities. In addition to phone numbers and auto-dial, many listings include additional information, such as rates, fares to points of interest, and airports. BeSoft is currently developing a multi-lingual website where taxi companies can add themselves to the database. Users may go to Settings to update the database, or may set it to update whenever the app is running and the device is shaken.
Based in the Ukraine, a large European nation of 46,000,000 people, BeSoft originally developed iTaxi UA solely for their own country. Having developed a comprehensive database of taxi services serving 36 major Ukrainian cities, including Kiev, Odessa, Dnepropetrovsk, Yalta, etc., the company made the decision to go worldwide. The app currently includes listings from the following 15 countries: Australia, Belarus, Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Moldova, Russia, Singapore, Turkey, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, and the United States.
Designed to operate only in portrait orientation, the app includes auto-location, and scrolling lists of Cities and Taxi Services. All Taxi Company listings include the name and telephone number of the company, plus an auto-dial button. Some listings include minimum fares, rates per mile or kilometer, and fixed fares to points of interest. For example, Paris-Cab in Paris, France has a listing that includes their logo, minimum charge, and the following:
* Airport CDG to Paris = 50 euros
* Airport CDG to Disneyland = 75 euros
* Paris to Versailles = 45 euros
* Paris to Disneyland = 70 euros
