Most people can barely remember what they had for lunch, much less where they parked their car however many hours ago. Valet’s here to do all that dirty memory work for you, so you can focus on the important things like… oh, you’ll think of something.
What does it do?
Exclusively for Android, one tap of the “Park My Car” icon drops a pin at your location and brings up a screen that lets you set a meter timer, so you’ll never have to return to an unexpected parking fine again. And should you have a Bluetooth-enabled music system, you can even opt for the Auto Park in-app purchase, which will automatically remember where you parked the second it disconnects.
Why do we like it?
It’s a simple, highly convenient app that solves a near-universal problem. And it takes into account practically any problem the supremely absent-minded might encounter. You’ll even be alerted when parking rules are going to change for the street you’re parked on, and the Auto Park feature completely removes you as the middle man. So your phone is taking care of you even when you don’t realise you need it. It’s simply an elegant solution to a major frustration — and that’s the beauty of it.
