Ola Cabs is a popular cab rental service similar to Uber, and available in Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Pune, Chennai, Goa, and Jaipur. The company has just launched their official app for Windows Phone 8 devices.
The Olacabs Windows Phone app allows you to see the closest available cabs around you and book with just one-touch. It saves you from call center hassles and the uncertainty about the arrival of the cab you’ve booked.
All you need to do is set your pickup location or let the app pick that automatically via GPS and pick the cab from all available cabs close by. Tap ‘Ride now’ to book your ride, and get instant confirmation with driver details. You can also schedule a pickup for some time later using the ‘Ride Later’ option.
You can check out your ride en-route on the map within the app, and pay only after completion of your ride. You can also invite friends to try out the service and earn Ola Money.
Download the Olacabs app for Windows Phone 8 devices for free from the Windows Phone Store. The app has a pretty functional and intuitive user experience, but could be designed better. It works all well though.
Meru Cabs, the leading cab rental service in India, also released their official app for Windows Phone a couple of months ago. Check out the Olacabs app, and let us know how you like it. Which is your preferred cab rental service in India?
