GetRide's app transforms an iPhone or Android smartphone into an electronic beacon, which draws in cab drivers like a magnet. Users need only set their pickup location and then wait. Moments later, a cab driver calls, verifies the information, and then zooms off to pick up customers, who can track the progress of their ride. Fares and tips are paid through GetRide, and the app also incorporates a review system, so users can seek out the most reliable cab drivers in the city and all of its alternate dimensions.
