With regard to taxiservices, there are many companies such as Easy Taxi, Careem and Uberthat have made the lives of people much easier due to the simple andconvenient nature of their applications. In fact, the aforementionedcompanies are still in a constant brawl for customers. It isimportant to note that these applications are not only compatiblewith Apple but, also Android operating system(Wooldridge&amp Schneider,2011). For this paper, there is discussion on an idea regarding asmall apple application for the purpose of taxi or car bookingservices.

Firstly,for this application idea, there are two ends the passenger end, andthe driver end. Regardless of the fact that registration is the same,the passenger application will be different from that of the driver.However, it should be noted that the passenger application will bebulkier than that of the driver. After registration, the passenger isfree to choose their preferred method of payment. In thisapplication, there will options of cash or credit card payments.After setting the preferred payment method, it automatically reflectson the passenger application at the end of a ride. Also, safety ofpassengers will be given an upper hand as the application willcontain GPS, and trackers in order to locate the vehicles at alltimes (Wooldridge&amp Schneider,2011).

Moreover,in the passenger application, there will be provision for setting theexact pick up location. In conjunction with Google Maps, theapplication will automatically detect the passenger’s location.Also, this application will be convenient as it will give passengersfreedom to pick their preferred type of taxi. Within this provision,passengers will be able to estimate their fare before starting thejourney. In fact, this application will charge customers in regard tothe number of kilometers rather than estimating the fare in otherways such as checking the amount of fuel used.

Also,this application will be able to inform passengers on the amount oftime in which the driver will take to arrive. The applicationdisplays location of the driver during the time of request hence thepassenger is able to observe the driver’s movements up until theyarrive at the pickup location. As prior mentioned, the payment methodis automatic with regard to the passenger’s preference. The lastprovision in the passenger application will be that of reviews, andratings. This provision is important as it will assist the company inknowing their drivers, and ensuring that passengers are well served(Wooldridge&amp Schneider,2011).

Onthe other hand, the driver application will be different from that ofthe passenger. Just like the passenger, the driver will undergoregistration process in order to begin working with the company. Forsafety of passengers, administrators of the application look into thedriver’s profile to ensure that he/she is competent enough to workwith the company. The driver application will also have theprovision of accepting or declining taxi requests within a specifiedduration. On approval, the driver will be able to view the pickuplocation of the passenger by the help of Google Maps. Also, thedriver will be able to update the application in regard to eitherapproval or disapproval of the pickup request. The provision of arequest history is important as it informs both the passenger, anddriver on the status of each request thus it will be present in bothapplications. In summation, it should be noted that through the twoapplications there is a database connection that enables thepassenger, and driver to send commands to the application (Wooldridge&amp Schneider,2011).
