During our time in Shenzhen we have been using the Ȕber taxi service for the first time. I'd only read about it before. Your phone broadcasts where you are, a nearby driver gives you a call and picks you up (you can see the car approaching on your phone map). We never had to wait more than 2-3 minutes for a car to arrive. Our drivers were - without exception - polite, on time and driving new, clean, air-conditioned cars. And the cost was 50-70% that of a normal taxi. What's not to like?
