TaxiFlasher Pricing and Upgrades -- Why isn't this free?

Although TaxiFlasher may seem simple, it's fun, useful, and represents a significant amount of development work and expenses. We don't want to use ads that are invasive and annoying to you, in order to support our development costs, so we're asking for the lowest amount we can. We think the fun and usefulness of TaxiFlasher as well as the upgrades we're planning are well worth the money.

If you are interested in TaxiFlasher but don't think it's worth the price, send an email to and ask to join our beta test program. We'll give you the app for free, in exchange for your feedback on how we can make it better. (Contact us soon! Apple® only allows us a limited number of beta tester slots!)


Sometimes the Apps you use on your device don't release the memory they've used when you're done with them. When your device runs low on memory, TaxiFlasher will not display correctly (there's a black box on the right side of the screen). This can be easily fixed by freeing up memory or by rebooting your device. We are working on a fix for this in future versions.
