Smartphone-based services have cab companies worried

GUANGZHOU, China -- Taxi app usage is on the rise in China as the services offer access to more luxurious cars, cut waiting time and cost less than conventional cabs.

Taxi-hailing apps are provoking protests by cab drivers and their companies in Guangzhou.

     While two companies dominate the country's taxi-hailing apps, users are expected to increase as Uber Technologies, a U.S. app company, readies itself for the market.
