Seemingly every time I park my car, I see someone else wandering around looking a little lost as they can't remember where they parked. I'm quite fortunate that most of the time, I don't have that problem. On the odd ocassion I do however, it's pretty embarrassing and very much a waste of time. myPark sets out to stop that problem as well as ensure that its users will always get back in time before their meter runs out.
The app tracks the user's movements from their car to their destination thus working out how long it takes to make the trip for future reference on the way back. It's possible to then set how long it's ok to park for depending on the parking meter or ticket system.
A series of reminders can also be added to ensure that users can always find their car again. These can be a short text description of the location, a photo of the surroundings, an audio note or the color and level of the car park itself.
Most conveniently, myPark informs the user when the parking time expires or when the walking time is equal to the time left on the meter. Finally, a way of always keeping track of the time without losing track during a meeting and getting caught out.
For a meagre price of $0.99, myPark could potentially save a fortune in parking tickets for forgetful car owners.
