    Cabbie



    Car broken down? Drink too much at the bar? Lost in an unknown city? Use Cabbie to automatically find the phone numbers to the nearest cab companies and you'll be in a taxi and on your way home in no time. Powered by Google local search.

    Features:
    • Automatic GPS lookup of nearest cab companies.
    • Manual search by city, state, or ZIP (if GPS is unavailable or to lookup numbers in different locations)


    Notes:

    It's my first webOS app and I'm proud to release the beta version here on PreCentral. The beta version will always be free, the finished release will be $1 via Palm's App Catalog.

    Current beta version: 0.4.1
    Known bugs:
    • If a data connection is unavailable, the app will not start. Obviously this is a big problem and I'm working on the best solution
    • Depending on network availability, loading the app or performing GPS searches can be slow. I'm working to optimize data connections.


    Features in development:
    • Style the results lists in a more attractive manner
    • Option to have Cabbie tell you your current location (for you to tell the cab company)

    The app is now approved on the homebrew list. Please try it out and let me know what you think. I have a fix almost ready for the slow loading time, BTW.
