ParkMe Parking app

By McClatchy News Services

POSTED:



Whoever said you can't save both time and money hasn't tried this parking app.

» Available for: Android, iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch

» What it does: Provides a "heat map" of real-time parking spaces in lots and garages that are available in 1,800 cities around the world. Sometimes you can pay in advance to reserve a spot.

» Cost: Free

» What's hot: Great for business and leisure travelers alike. The app and Web version (www.ParkMe.com ) will save users time and aggravation in looking for parking at a sporting event, concert, business meeting and more. My favorite feature, besides the real-time feature, is that you can sort your search results by "Best Price" or "Least Pain." At some point, it's not worth saving $3 if you have to walk umpteen blocks to get to the cheaper lot.

» What's not: I found the "Nearby Places" feature to be hit or miss. When I was looking for parking near my suburban home for a family function, I found great info on a street lot. But the recommended Nearby Places were 14 to 30 miles away.

» Worth it: Yes. Who likes driving around looking for parking spaces or lots inexpensive enough to suit your budget? Nobody.
