park-n-find-iphone-appWhether it’s a crowded mall parking lot during a busy shopping season, the movie theater lot, or even the downtown parking garage, Park’n Find for iPhone makes it easy to remember where you parked and helps you find your car again. For under a buck, you won’t ever be that directionally challenged person wandering aimlessly about a lot again.

Park’n Find utilizes the iPhone’s GPS tracking system to mark your parked location on a map in surprisingly accurate fashion. When it’s time to return to your car, a quick look at the map tells you which direction to head and can get you within a few yards or feet most times.

The beauty of Park’n Find, besides its bargain $.99 price tag, is the ability to add as much or little information to find your vehicle.

Detailed options include taking a photo of the location, recording a voice memo if necessary and even to input documented information such as parking lot row number or parking garage level. These are especially useful if signal strength is low. There’s even an option to set a parking meter reminder so not only will you know where your car is, but you can rest assured that the meter won't run out of money while your standing in line for a latte.

While Park’n Find is touted as a must-have app for the busy holiday shopping season, I can think of dozens of other useful applications – the amusement park, the zoo, the hospital parking garage, downtown events, and after the movies are but a few. Park’n Find stores information until deleted, so if you park at the airport, fly to Vegas and rent a car, you can use the app on vacation and still find your car at the airport when you return.

For price and value, Park’n Find is a great addition to anyone’s iPhone, but is most assuredly a must-try for avid travelers, shoppers, and the directionally challenged. With a simple, user-friendly interface and practical options for data entry, Park’n Find is quite the App Store find indeed.

    10/10 in my opinion!

    I've used a lot of utility apps (even wrote a few) and this one leverages all of the iPhone's ability and even works around some of the known issues to bring a solid utility to the iphone. Hands down the best parking app. Other developers should take note and not blame the iphone dev kit for their apps lacking features.

    The reviewer of this app must not have used a 3Gs, otherwise the compass with arrow pointing which way to go would have appeared on the screen, extra nice feature.

    I agree the compass is a nice feature. Sadly, it doesn't appear with EVERY single tag. Not sure why, but it is definitely an added bonus when it does.

    Thanks for the great review Jennifer. My company developed Park'n Find and we really appreciate feedback.

    This is the first I have heard about any problems with the compass or "go this way" arrow not displaying on an iPhone 3GS. Would you mind sending an email to our support e-mail address (park-n-find@affinicore.com) and let us know the relevant details about problems you ran into?

    We just submitted an update to Apple yesterday which makes quite a few improvements to Park'n Find. Hopefully Apple will make it available to our users within the next few weeks.

    Thanks!

    We've updated the screenshot to show the compass feature -- which is really handy btw.

    Greetings,
    Presumably this ap can be used to mark anything. Walk out of your hotel and find a restaurant, wander to your hearts content then just follow the iphone map home. Locate an object on your land and find it easily when you come back. Bury a body and uh... lol.
