Dev Note #5
Hi everyone. I’m bringing you a few bug fixes today. Yup, we worked on them non-stop like, Thank You, Next (bug)!
Btw, we released the version 4.2.3 that enabled 3D Touch for JapanTaxi Wallet last month. Have you had a chance to use it?
Before this awesome improvement, you would have to open the app and select JapanTaxi Wallet from the main menu in order to get to the QR code reader screen. Not cool when you are in a hurry. But now with this version, all you need to do is tap on the app icon on your device’s screen and voila, you are there!
It might sound like a tiny feature, but it’s actually a great time-saver, not to mention super convenient. Because we want all our users to use our app more easily and efficiently, we are talking about ways to promote this awesome new feature to further spread the word. So stay tuned!
At JapanTaxi, we live and breathe customer feedback. If you have any ideas or questions about the app, we would love to hear from you. Thank you for your continued support.

Ratings and Reviews
I wish we knew about this app sooner!!!
We have been in Tokyo for 5 nights and we just found this app!! We’re from Los Angeles where we use Uber for any and all needed rides, we were lamenting the fact that there is no Uber-like apps UNTIL we found japan taxi.
It has been so easy to use, we input our airbnb address and our taxi came, it’s cool that you can pay through the app
Thank you for creating this app! I wish we knew about this from the beginning of our trip.
The app suggested that I write my name in a kana but I just wanted to use romaji, and although it says “write in hiregana if you can” it would not let me register if I did not. While trying to register unsuccessfully, we were able to request an Uber Black but a taxi showed up at the taxi stand and we were off and running. Just wish I could delete the app from my purchase list since I won’t be using it, but that’s on Apple.
Uber or Lyft it is Not!
A good idea, but poor implementation and plenty of bugs. I had nothing but problems each time I tried to use it. On 3 different occasions trying to use it in major parts of Kyoto it only worked and that was only after the 2nd attempt as the first cab never showed up. I would often get "no can available at this location" or the app would simply not respond when attempting to request a taxi.
