NYC residents no longer have to worry about flagging down a cab thanks to a new app. The Sedan Magic app lets taxi riders book a car service, track the arrival of their assigned car, map their route, calculate how much it should cost and even pay for the ride all from a smartphone.
Riders must create an account to use the service. Here is more about how to pay with the app: “Securely input and manage multiple credit cards within the app. Pay with your corporate card or personal credit card depending on the trip. All credit card information can also be maintained within your Magic Account.”
The Next Web tried out the service and had this to say: “The app is relatively easy to use, letting you book a ride now or schedule for later. It provides transparent pricing so you know how much it will cost you (tip included) before you book. While an “executive sedan” is currently assigned, soon you will be able to choose between 2-3 sedan categories. In my five times using the service, I received 3 SUVs and 2 sedans. All of the drivers were on time, and incredibly friendly!”
