Even if you don't live in New York City, chances are you know the proper way to hail a taxicab these days does not involve whistling through your fingers. Smartphone apps make it easy for people to schedule, track and pay for a traditional cab and/or ride-sharing services.

Irish startup iCabbi was faced with this transformation...
