Taxi Snapshot is an App That Turns NYC Taxicabs into Social Photo Booths

Geotagging is one of the big trends in photography these days, as more and more cameras allow GPS coordinates to be baked into the EXIF data of photos to document where they were taken. iOS app developer Reddyset wants to join in on the location tagging fun, but from a very different angle: taxitagging.

They’ve released a fun new iOS app called Taxi Snapshot that allows people to snap and share anonymous photos based on New York City taxicabs rather than static locations.

By grouping the photographs according to taxicab medallion numbers, the app effectively turns the distinctive yellow vehicles into mobile photo booths.

Download the app, and you’ll always have something fun to do when you step into a taxi: browse the pictures of people who rode before you, leave your own pictures for riders who come after you, and view the most popular taxi cabs in the city.

The app is free, has great reviews, and can be download over in the iTunes App Store.

    Hmm… I have a 20 minute taxi ride to work every day so maybe I’ll give this a try.
