Mytaxi have the worst customer service I have ever experienced, especially for a 'premium' taxi service. Uber and Kapten are much better!
Does it still valid on 14th? And how can you see estimated cost like on uber app?
I also had a look at it and it seems as though you can’t see even the estimated cost of journey, which is a worrisome. Assuming that the cost is already over-the-odds, this might not be much of a saving compared to using say, Kapten, Bolt or ViaVan (all three of whom are regularly undercutting Uber of late).
Good deal in isolation, however concurring with the others, they're really expensive. They basically find you a yellow/black cab and at yellow/black prices. Also you generally can't see the price beforehand, so you can't see how much you're being ripped off!
my fav is still addison lee, but I've tried kapten and they were alright, and bolt was fine too

mytaxi doesn't give you even a hint of cost estimate so you could easily get screwed

uber is the worst of all of them for how they don't vet their drivers
If you have any issues with that company, including being robbed by a taxi driver, they will do nothing and say they have nothing related to it!

Their support is useless. They just say sorry, we can't do anything. Even Uber try harder. I was overcharged due to an error on their end and they refused to refund, my first and last time using them. Cost me £8 for a cab that would have cost £5 from Uber and much quicker service.

So, what are they called informally?
Donno why this is cold, it worked great for me twice. Great value for a black cab.

Because MyTaxi/FreeNow customer service is rubbish at a premium price. Kapten is a sister company of FreeNow yet has much better CS.

Addison Lee always struck me pricey. Perhaps things have changed.

Kapten and Bolt have been sending out 10-30% discounts practically every week for months now and have won me over as a result.
