“Parkbud™ for iPhone is probably one of the coolest ways to find out that your parking meter has just expired, complete with cool...sound effects, beautiful UI animations, & a lovely icon for your Springboard....”

App Scout: “Sexy Parked Car Finder”
“Parkbud™ has the beauty & sophistication that quite possibly will encourage you to use it when you are only parked in your garage.”

“ The app itself resembles a handcrafted, expensive timepiece, complete with simulated moving parts, ticking clock hands, rotating gears, & polished buttons that gives the app a defined, but techie feel.

“The app doesn't just look pretty either. Finding parking is accurate, setting the meter time is simple...”
