iPhone, Android, Blackberry and your home computer
This is a handy website/phone app to have if you are heading to a busy metropolitan area and want to figure out where to park. Enter your intended destination and you’ll receive a map and/or list of parking options and prices. The site currently covers most major US cities and airports and is continually expanding.
Honk! (No more parking tickets)
Honk is a combination app that includes a parking meter alarm and a find your car feature. If you are prone to parking tickets the $.99 cost of the app is definitely worth it.
Pocket Parking Meter
This Android app also sets an alarm clock to alert you when your meter is about to expire and uses GPS tracking to help you find your car.
An even simpler idea to avoid parking tickets: Almost all cell phones come with a clock/timer feature. When you put money in the meter set your timer. Voila, no more tickets (or at least you’ll know if your time has expired.)
If you’re into knowing how fast your car can accelerate from 0 to 60 or how much horsepower you reached Dynolicious is for you. This is definitely an app for the car hobbyist and takes time to set up. Check out this full review from The New York Times for more information. For Android performance enthusiast users try Dynomaster, for $4.99.
