In Singapore, Comfort Cab & CitiCab offer a cab booking service by SMS. To book a cab, one has to text either BOOK <Postal Code> #Pick-up point or BOOK <Building Name> #Pick-up point to the number 71222.
But it can be a chore to remember addresses and to type out the booking SMS messages. Not to mention having to remember that number 71222 when you are out in the rain searching madly for a cab!
So I created Cabbie to help me manage addresses and send booking messages. I hope you'll find it useful too!

I hope I've made Cabbie intuitive enough that it doesn't need an instruction manual! Nevertheless, here's a screencast on YouTube that walks through some of the basic operations.
