Video Progress

A friend of mine, Brandon Wu (from Strategy Lab) has been shooting the iPhone app video for TaxiMe. The video will contain three scenes: one bar scene, one airport scene and one hotel scene.

We just finished filming the hotel scene today at the Hotel Sask and things went extremely well! We’re so happy to show you the video once it’s done.

Gearing up to launch the beta

Johannes and I are gearing up to launch the beta version of TaxiMe. On Friday night, we ordered pizza and Johannes came over to my house where we finalized a few last bug fixes and tweaks to make it extra purdy.

For those that are wondering what TaxiMe is, it’s a taxi estimation app that estimates your taxi fare from A to B and factors in weather, time of day, traffic and city rates into the estimation. It’s a one of a kind taxi estimation app.

Here’s Johannes working on the little touch-ups for the iPhone app. We’ll be posting a video of it in action soon enough!

Here’s Andrée helping me phone taxi companies to get the proper taxi rates. That night, we got rates for 35 US cities. Right now, we have rates for about 60 cities across US and Canada. We’re not stopping there, there are still several cities we wish to support right out of the gate.

Twerkin’ hard

Johannes and I are at the office right now putting some finishing touches on the “get featured” part of TaxiMe. This is the portion of the app where taxi companies can apply to be a featured company and be listed first when users perform an estimation in their city.
