MeterDown, the previously iOS only Mumbai rickshaw and taxi fare calculator has now come to the Android OS. Developer Siddhartha Banerjee announced that the app is available for free from the Android Market for touchscreen devices running Android 2.1 and higher.

The advantage of using an app over a paper fare chart is fairly obvious. Lower chance of getting lost/damaged, the app updates when the fares update and also, this app in particular gives you readings up until 27 (both day and night rates) while most paper charts give you rates until 25,30.
