Find a Ride: NexTaxi
NexTaxi partners with existing car services to offer you transportation. It starts with a task menu: You can get a car based on your current location or a previous trip, or set up a return request for a completed trip. The resulting interface isn’t as slick as some of its competitors, but the program is every bit as useful.
Trips can be arranged based on a map location, your contacts list or a typed address; you can even pass a note to the driver (“Look for the guy with the red umbrella.”). Best feature: If you leave something in a car, you can send a message so that the driver will come back.
