Top 5 Car Sharing Apps

NEW YORK TheStreet--If you've ever tried to hail a cab on a rainy Saturday night, you know how hard it can be to get a ride. Fortunately, there's no longer a need to shiver on a corner, eagerly awaiting an available car. There's a new array of options for hitching a ride. The hardest part is deciding which app to choose from.

You can order a limo and arrive at the party with style, or find a pre-screened local driver for some modern-day hitchhiking. Whatever revs your engine, there are a variety of car service options in Apple's (AAPL - Get Report) App Store.

Originally, the e-hail apps were allowed in New York City. Then they weren't. After a series of obstacles with the Taxi & Limousine Commission, it looks like they're in the clear for now. Los Angeles transportation officials recently sent the apps a cease-and-desist, because they threaten the city's existing taxi services. The apps are allowed in San Francisco, which came in handy in the BART strike last week.

Taxi apps have had a rough go of it lately, but don't fret. Most major metropolitan areas permit these services.

TheStreet took a look through the app stores. Here are some car service apps worth checking out.
