Taxi!! (There's an App for That)Washington D.C. is full of taxis, but there will be times when either you don’t feel like standing on the curb and hailing one down (like in a thundering rainstorm) or it’s the wee early hours of the morning and there’s not a cab in sight. In those situations, you can turn to your mobile device for help. Here are two apps that you can use to book a D.C. taxi and manage your reservation.

MyTaxi is a new app and it connects you directly with a driver. TaxiMagic will connect you with a dispatch service.
While you are looking at apps for your mobile device, here are a couple of other app-centric websites that may be of interest to anyone traveling to D.C.
