On Demand Taxi Solutions
Great article. Our trend is beyond Uber who introduced a scintillating technology for people to book taxis. At the time, there are also other companies came into existence who build an on-demand taxi dispatch software for the taxi business.

Re: Mobile Trend
Taxi applications have seen development in the previous couple of years. Whether it is Uber that is available over the globe in numerous urban areas or neighborhood taxi applications, more buyers are hopping onto the applications for cab drivers alternative over the conventional taxi in their city. Uber continues to grow its business along with the mobile trend.

Re: It's an iPhone life
I've definitely come to count on apps like Uber, maps, and Square too. I'm in NYC right now and have already used the maps a bunch, but my phone is also having issues -- it won't keep a charge. I guess that points out a potential problem -- any innovative service will always be limited by data plans and battery life. I don't see that as a huge problem, but it's always best to design services that are friendly to both the network and battery.

Re: Uber a Winner
Uber has definitely nailed the payments part of the process (although I got annoyed when they tacked on a usage fee). I also like that you enter your credit card information by using the phone's camera to take a picture of it. More good use of integration with the device.

Re: Uber a Winner
Over the years the payment industry managed to get people to design systems and layouts around them. While at the time it was out of necessity it is no longer so as payments are simply a utility which mobile and constant connectivity along with continuous data collection has superseeded. Successful retailers and other payment users will recognize what companies like Stripe and Braintree recognised, which is that they can totally redesign the customer experience by removing payments as a deciding factor.

Uber a Winner
The success of Uber was discussed by some of the panelists at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago's Payments Symposium last week.

One of the speakers pointed out that one of the things that Uber is doing successfully -- and needs to be done in the U.S. --- is making payment a painless and seemless part of the user experience.

Re: It's an iPhone life
Yes, agree. Or take it a step further and look at the managed servcies (using on premise location) opportunity for mobile operators as enterprise transition away from buy/manage 80% Capex to 80% Opex services http://bit.ly/XO0NRE

It's an iPhone life
Good post and there's no question that the holy triumvirate of devices, networks and services will, and already is, dramatically altering our social and professional lives. On a recent trip to NYC, I was dependent upon my phone for almost everything, especially apps such as Uber and Square. As you mentioned, healthcare will be a key area to watch, especially as health insurers start to tie monitoring apps to annual plans, e.g., more activity, healthier diet equals lower premiums.

Right on...
For a change I won't be controversial in my comments - last paragraph is, to use that marketing term that I hate,  "spot on."
