Sure, many Germans have a fairly competent command of English, but add in a crackly phone connection, your own accent, and possibly having no clue about your current location, and then ordering a taxi in Berlin can become quite a challenge.

Download this free app to your phone (available both for Android and iPhones) and it’ll locate the nearest taxi for you via GPS and let you hail it at a click of a button. Then follow its whereabouts on the map.

It’ll also provide the driver’s profile and let you enter special requests (e.g., credit card payment, pet transport) and rate the ride afterwards. Imagine if only Grindr worked the same way…
