iPhone App Review: Park’n Find

iPhone App Review: Park’n Find

January 22nd, 2010 by

Dude where’s your car?

You will no longer have to ask that question!  The app store offers many car locating applications but Park’n Find developed by Affnicore is in my opinion the best.  It is extremely user friendly, very well explained in their description and actually works well with no crashing!  I couldn’t find cons within this application that would be at the fault of the developer.  I even checked the bad reviews to try and find out something within this app that I could suggest be improved but every bad review in the app store was user error.

Features and Functionality

  • GPS Mapping with auto-zoom which pans and zooms the map as you move closer or farther from your parked vehicle.
  • If using the iPhone 3GS, combines compass with GPS to provide directional arrow and distance to your parked vehicle.
  • GPS coordinates are automatically approximated to a street address.
  • Push notification reminders for events like paying a parking meter, moving your vehicle, or when the parking location closes.
  • A real-time clock indicating duration of time parked. Useful for tracking how long you have parked in metered or long-term parking locations.
  • Enter as little or as much information you need to find your vehicle.  Everything is optional.
  • Take photos and record a voice note to help fully document the parking spot. Have a visual or audio record of nearby signs, walkways, stairwells, nearby landmarks or any other relevant information (iPhone only).
  • Track unlimited parking locations; not just one or two. Useful for traveling when your primary vehicle is parked at the airport and you need to also track your rental cars.
  • Data entry interface designed for easy single-handed “on the go” usage. Only one optional entry utilizes the “keyboard” while all others uses buttons or circular wheels.
  • A large variety of parking spot data types are available for selection, supporting nearly any parking location.  Just tap column headings to toggle through several selection types.
  • Several features can be customized in the application preferences.  Default data entry options are selectable from preferences so you can set commonly used wheel categories.  This provides efficient parking spot recording for people who frequently park in the same lot or garage.

What Was Pleasing…

Park’n Find offers every feature you could ever need for a car locating application!  I love the interface and how easy it was to use and navigate.  I also loved that they gave a very through explanation of all of the features within the app store’s description.  When I used the application I always had a strong GPS signal and I love that I could take a picture within Park’n Find.  I also found the real time clock very useful for keeping track of your meter time.


The only problem that occurred while I was using Park’n Find was that is crashed once between the first and second screen but other than that there were no problems. I did read that the application can have low GPS strength within parking structures. So that could pose a problem for those people who park primarily within a parking garage but with all of the other features within Park’n Find you still should have absolutely no problem finding your car!

Also the GPS obviously wont work with Ipod Touch so don’t expect to be able to use the app to its full potential if you aren’t using it with a 3G or 3GS. Sadly in the review of this application within the app store a couple people actually complained about the GPS not working with their Ipod Touch……DUH!

Suggestions for Improvement

This is a first for me…


Park’n Find is available in the app store it is worth every penny it costs…all 99 of them.

Park’n Find 2.0 is available for purchase here.
