Version 1.1 in the App Store now!

Hi all,

We're very pleased to announce we've now released a new version of London Taxi App! We realised early on that the original version wasn't perfect, especially since not everyone knows the postcode of where they are travelling from or to. The alternative, typing in a street name, is not foolproof either as it's very difficult for the app to know whether you mean High Street - Wembley, High Street - Wimbledon, or even High Street - Winchester. So we've done the hard work for you by putting the locations of all streets in London into the app, and auto-suggesting them when you type into the input boxes.

We've summarised the improvements below:

- Automatically suggests street names and local attractions or stations as you type, improving the usability and accuracy of the app
- Improves the address entry system to give better accuracy when searching for specific addresses
- Improves the GPS current location finding system to locate you quicker, and avoid some of the errors of the previous version
- Rounds to the nearest 20p (especially important for the taxi fare purists!)
- Updated the fares to match the latest April 2010 TfL tariffs.
- Added additional points of interest such as sporting venues

Bug fixes
- Reduced data caching to avoid problems when doing multiple searches.
