Do your frequent shopping trips to the nearby mall often end up with you looking around for your car in the parking lot? You might find an end to your parking woes with this app that has been getting very popular among the masses. Aptly titled iParkedhere, this app, according to its creator, is just the thing you need to help you keep a track of your car. The app helps you remember the exact location of your car, as also signals you if you’ve run out of your parking time.
That's some detail!
Brandon Cowan, the creator of this app is a 17 year old student in the Masada College in North Sydney. This $2.49 app is the first of Brandon’s ventures. He developed this app with the help of a family friend, Hilton Rosenfield. Together they have started a company called Crazy Dog Apps. According to their company’s website, the app can:
- Find your car in any shopping centre
- Find your car on any street
- Indoor mode for car parks & shopping centres
- Outdoor mode for street parking
- Time your parking duration
- Sound an alarm - Set timer for desired time
- View 'Time Remaining' or 'Time Elapsed'
- Take a picture of where you parked
- Take notes to enter nearby landmarks
As the mall culture in India grows, parking woes will just get worse. Imagine having an app that could bail you out of such a situation. Currently, the app is the number one top grossing app in the Lifestyle category on the iTunes app store and has been ranked 31st of all apps on the Australian store.
