BAM! myTaxi is the iPhone app of the year 2012


Who could have thought of such explosive news just before Christmas? On 20 Dec 2012, the App Store voted myTaxi best “App of 2012″. We are giddy with excitement. ”This app revolutionized taxi searches in Germany. Booking taxis, submitting driver ratings, displaying the positions of available taxis and issuing digital invoices – all just using the iPhone,” is how the App Store Editorial Team describes myTaxi. And they are right.

For us, this amazing year started with the end of the second investment round for EUR 10 million. It continued with our internationalization: Be it in Spain, Switzerland, Poland or the USA – we opened branches in all of these places. Apart from international launches, we naturally further improved our product, too. Such as in July with “myTaxi Payment”, the first mobile payment system, allowing for a direct invoice process in the taxi.  And two other big launches in order to further improve usability for the driver and the passenger. The year went by fairly quickly…


At 2.7 million downloads and 20,000 taxis, we have become the world’s biggest taxi app. This could only happen with the help of our incredible team, of course: 100 employees at 11 sites are doing their utmost for the app. In any case, this award is the best possible confirmation for all of us and the most wonderful Christmas present.
