Were you celebrating at the weekend and wonder if the cash you have for the journey home is enough? Is going to the nearest ATM necessary? The Taxometer can give you the answer straight away.
Do you sometimes need a quick and easy way to show the taxi driver where you want to go to? Use the exclusive ‘Drunken-Mode’ on the Taxometer to calculate the route home with just one ‘shake’ of your hand held phone.
With Taxometer you always travel in the right direction!
“A ‘practical’ additional feature: The Drunken-Mode. The application has your home address stored so that when you want to calculate the taxi fare ride home from your current location, Taxometer just needs to be started and shaken. All you have to do then is push the big button that appears on the screen to call the taxi company.”
“Thanks to the iPhone App Taxometer, you never need to pay higher prices than you should for a taxi ride ever again.”
“The absolute highlight of the App is without a doubt the Drunken-Mode: Overall the App is very user friendly - the Drunken-Mode and taxi fare cost overview functions in particular. “

Crashfix when using a POI search.

Not worth it. Should be able to see cities available without purchasing.
As the title states I had to buy the application before I could even tell if my city was in it, of course it wasn't. Waste of money for me.
Like the idea of it
Doesn't have my state. Not worth the money till they have all 50 stated at least
Not enough cities
My city is not there, waste of money, not everyone lives in NY or LA.
