South Korean mobile messaging services provider Daum Kakao has launched the 'KakaoTaxi' mobile service. The KakaoTaxi passenger app connects drivers and passengers. Once logged in with their Kakao Account, the user's current location is automatically set as the pick up location. Users should only input the drop off location to complete the request. Based on a variety of factors including distance and current traffic conditions, the request is then sent to the best-positioned drivers for ride acceptance.
