Didi-Dache, a popular taxi-hailing smartphone app which is believed to be created by Tencent, has recently emerged and more than 700 taxi drivers in the city have installed the app.

The app shows the real-time locations of taxis on a map using the GPS technology and enables users to hail a taxi on their smartphone. The users’ request will be sent to proximate cab drivers who will decide whether to accept the order or not.

The app is very useful during off-peak periods when most taxis are idle. During rush hour, hiring a cab can still be challenging. The app also enables passengers to catch a cab during peak hours by paying extra fees or tips. In December 2012, the rate of successful taxi-hails was 50 percent during peak traffic periods and 80 percent during non-peak times.

Didi-Dache, which was just released in September 2012 and is very popular in Beijing and Guangzhou, has been downloaded five million times. It has received $15 million, at a valuation of $60 million, from Tencent, who will take 20% stake in the company.
