Hanging out at a park, beach or firework display today? If so, be sure to take Parkbud with you! If you've ever been to a mega mall that contains acres of parking, you know it's very easy to "misplace" where you parked your car. I've been in this situation at amusement parks, offices and malls on occasion where there was just a sea of cars out there! That's where Parkbud comes in so handy. Use this useful app to locate your car, check your parking meter, get directions back to your car, and find parking garages in the area if you need. More than that, Parkbud is built on sleek, modernistic graphics and animations, while being very easy to use and read. Some of the helpful features of this parking utility iPhone app are as follows:
• Always know where your car is located.
• Get up to the minute directions back to your car (OS 3.2+).
• Find nearby parking garages.
• Keep track of the time left on your meter & get reminders before your meter expires.
• Take notes on parking restrictions, errands, whatever you wish.
• Use the camera tool to take a photo of your location, car, parking fees, etc.
In further explanation of the uses of Parkbud, consider these interesting details. The app has support for 13 languages (that will definitely cover most of the people I know)! The Meter Alarm that counts down your time in your parking spot is an attractive digital clock that is actually a virtual ticking timepiece with time wheel. The Car Locator and Park Finder will provide you with directions to your car, along with address and distance. Use this tool also to discover nearby parking garages so you won't have to deal with the frustration of no empty spots around.
If you have time, snap a picture of your car's location with any other details such as the meter prices, garage prices, time restrictions, etc. Oh, and don't forget to use the beautiful Notepad in "leather cover" to jot down any notes or reminders on the nature of your parking spot or on your current errands. What more could anyone require in their need to discover and utilize parking while at work, on road trip vacations, or completing chores around town? Usefulness, smooth operation and beauty translate to a must-have app for me!
