If you don’t always remember where you parked your car, your iPhone GPS can help you out with a new app called Where Is My Car Parked.
Where Is My Car Parked is a classic parking app that assists users in locating their parked vehicle. The main draw of the app, at least for me, is how simple and clean the user interface is.
Once loaded for the first time, the app will request your location and begin tracking you. Once in the app, there are three buttons for navigation: Save Location, Track, or Recall Location.
If the app has not located you, users can tap “Track” to have the app search for your location again. It is assumed that you are standing next to your vehicle when opening the app or using the Track button. At this point, the app would have located the user with a pin drop on the in-app map.
After the location is confirmed on the map, tapping on “Save Location” will save that location for future reference. This location is saved in one of three slots under the “Recall Location” selection.
The “Recall Location” selection brings users to a traffic stoplight graphic that saves your last three saved parking locations. The Recall Location selection is used when users must find their parked car. Once the required selection is chosen, users then tap on “Map it” and the app draws directions to your vehicle.
The app is definitely handy and is extremely simple with a very easy to understand user interface. While noting your parking space in the iPhone Notes app works fine, using a GPS-based app such as Where Is My Car Parked provides a more direct (and fun!) approach to finding your parked car.
Where Is My Car Parked is available in the App Store for $0.99.
