Argh, where did I park my car again? Oh noes! Did I fill up the meter enough? Maaan, where can I even park? I know my forgetful self is always asking those questions over and over again but with Parkbud, I won't ever have to again.
What's it do?
Parkbud bills itself as a Car Locator and Parking app, which means it'll help you remember where you parked your car. Just fire up the app and Parkbud will remember where your car is located through GPS with one click. It gives you a snazzy map with instructions on how to get back (and directions to other carparks if you're having trouble finding a spot). Parkbud also keeps track of your parking meter too (again, in a snazzy virtual parking meter) — it'll show you how much time you have left on your meter and fire off an alarm once you get close to running out. There's even options to take a picture of your parked car to serve as a visual reminder and jot notes down within the app to make sure you never forget where you parked.
Why do we like it?
It's the type of app that does things other apps already do (keep track of parking, meters, etc), but does it in a better package than anyone else. Let's face it, if Parkbud was hard to use (like other apps are), no one would ever use it. Thankfully, it's a cinch, I can take down all the relevant tips I need to remember my parking spot while walking away from my car. Plus, the app is kick-you-in-your-pants gorgeous. You'll want to use it and show it off.
