One Click Parking To save a new parking reminder, you simply click once on a map. ParKing will automatically show the location and address of your parking and your current location.
Parking History ParKing saves all of your previous parking places. You can edit or delete each parking place, or see all the parking places on a map. In addition, you can set an automatic cleanup of your parking history.
Automatic Parking With automatic parking, you don’t need to manually save where you parked your car, ParKing will do it for you automatically! When you activate automatic parking, the app detects when your mobile device disconnects from your car’s Bluetooth device and saves your parking automatically. ParKing saves your battery and doesn’t need to run in the background in order to detect automatic parking.
User Defined Zones In case you park at the same place many times, e.g. at home or at the office, ParKing lets you define zones where you will not receive automatic parking notifications. ParKing will simply save your parking place silently. You will only be notified when you park in a new parking place.
Parking Time Reminder In case you have a limited parking time, you can add a parking time reminder. You will be notified when your parking time is about to end.
Navigation ParKing offers multiple options to navigate to your car: – Use your favorite navigation app to find your car: Google Maps, Waze etc. – Use a built-in map with a marker of your parking place. – Use a built-in compass to locate your car.
Indoor / Underground Parking In case you park your car indoors or underground, GPS signal might not be available. In such cases, you can add a photo or a text note to help you find your car.

“▶ Parking Pin™ – The App that Automatically Remembers Where You Parked & Guides You Back To Your Car! ◀
» “A steal for the value you get” – appshappens.com « » “It just knows. Like magic. […] it is well thought out and easy to look at. (It’s even fun to play with!)” – Item of the Day on hellogiggles.com « » App of the Day & App of the Evening on AppTurbo.com «
Never waste your time or energy wandering around again. Other apps claim to guide you back to your car but let’s face it-using an app that requires you to tell it that you’ve parked just isn’t going to work. After all, if you’re prone to forgetting your spot, you’re going to forget to tell the app you’ve parked.
Parking Pin is different. Use it when you need it most-that painful moment when you realize you can’t remember where you parked. Unlike other apps that require you buy extra accessories or to mark your location beforehand, Parking Pin simply remembers your last spot for you without your iPhone ever leaving your pocket or purse. Parking Pin remembers where you’ve parked, even if you don’t!
How Does It Work?
Parking Pin’s Pin Finder* uses the newest iPhones’ Motion Coprocessors in combination with Location Services to pinpoint your spots as you park. It does this in the background, while your iPhone is asleep or as you use other apps. The next time you open the app, your current spot will be saved along with a list of your most recent spots.
Don’t have an iPhone with Motion capabilities?
We’ve got you covered! As long as you enable Location Services, saving your spots has never been easier. Simply drop a Pin manually with the tap of a button or easily reposition an existing Pin for a more accurate location. Rotating your iPhone reveals a fullscreen map making getting back to your car a snap. It even works without Wifi or Cell Service!
Where’s My Car?
Open the app to see your current Pin location on a map with walking directions, distance to your car, street name, date you parked & how long you’ve been parked for along with a compass needle that continuously points in your car’s direction.
When Does My Meter Expire?
Was that 1 hr 35 mins you bought at 3:15pm or was it 3 hrs at 1:15!? Hate remembering how much time you have left on your meter? So do we. That’s why Parking Pin has a slick built-in Meter with Time Left, Time Available & Expire Time settings. Pinch or tap to set one of these options. Parking Pin automatically calculates & sets the rest-you’ll never need to do the extra math! Parking Pin will even notify you when your meter expires or is about to expire.

“Where’s my car? Where did I park? Parking your car means having to remember where exactly you left it. But, how many times have you ended up wandering around for quite a while before finally finding your car?
Say you and your significant other are tourists in a city that you don’t know, and you leave your car to go for an evening walk. Or, say you park in a rush in order to arrive on time for an appointment. But when you’re done… how do you find your car?
This Android app enables you to find your parked car with a few simple clicks by means of a map. Do not spend much time looking for the parking spot.
You only have to do 2 things:
– Store the car’s location: the app will use GPS and mobile networks to archive the car’s location. – Find your car: go to parking spot! in order that you may locate the car, this will launch a map that will lead you back to your vehicle.
The app is compatible with all Android versions higher than 5.0.”
