Taxi booking app upgraded, much improved.

ComfortDelgro Taxi Booking is the one app I rely on almost every day and I'm glad to report that the company has significantly improved the app.

The app now allows you to save the text in the note field so you don't have to keep keying in the same note from a favourite pick-up spot.

Bookings now are followed by an SMS confirmation. In addition, you can check the status of your booking as well as cancel bookings from the app.

One cool feature is the ability to locate the taxi on a map as it speeds towards you. Unfortunately, it doesn't work all the time.

This app may not win a beauty contest, but I have no problems recommending it. A must-upgrade if you want to beat long taxi queues.

ComfortDelgro Taxi Booking is free. You can download it here.

I would warn people against upgrading if they frequently use wifi. I cannot book over my home or wireless@sg connection, so have to turn off wifi on my phone before a booking works.

If you exit the app before a booking confirmation is received, the app re-books the next time you start the app. I end up with multiple bookings each time because of this.

I give this upgrade 2/5. Yes, it has fixed a number of problems with the old app, but seems to have broken more than it has fixed.
