New App Helps You Find a Parking Spot



iphone mobile appNow there is an app that tells you where the nearest parking garage is, its hours of operation, where its entrances are and how much it costs to park there.

Parking in Motion operates on user-generated parking info, much along the lines of Gas Buddy, the app I told you about earlier that tells you where the cheapest gas station is near you.

According to cnet, the app’s developers plan on working with garage operators to aggregate real-time parking availability reporting. They are also looking to add on-street parking assistance in the future.

Currently, the app is available for iPhone and has ‘coming soon’ placeholders listed for Android and Blackberry on its site. The app’s info covers 300 cities.
