  1. Comfort and Citycab. This app started the taxi booking craze in Singapore when it was first launched on app stores. Unlike other booking apps, Comfort and Citycab doesn’t require you to be a registered user to book a cab. Although it’s capable of tracking your current location through GPS, it may be better to manually enter your address to allow drivers to get a more accurate direction.
  1. Easy Taxi. Easy Taxi is one of the most popular booking apps in Singapore, as it books cabs fast and easy. Just by clicking the ‘Call Taxi’ button, your app will automatically detect your location and call the nearest taxi in your area. Once your booking has been confirmed, you’ll be able to view some of the important taxi information including the taxi model, car plate number and the driver’s phone number. Aside from that, Easy Taxi also lets you know how far the taxi you booked is from your current location.
