Each month I highlight web or mobile apps that are useful to lawyers. Sometimes the apps are developed specifically for lawyers and other times I feature non-legal apps that are nevertheless interesting to lawyers.
Today’s app is Best Parking, an app that does exactly what its name suggests: it helps you find the best and cheapest parking near wherever you happen to be. It’s available as an iOS app, an Android app, a Blackberry app, or you cam simply visit the website, via computer or mobile device.
Using this app, you can easily locate the closest, most convenient, and cheapest parking. You simply input your city, allow the app to access your current location, and then indicate whether you’d like daily or monthly parking rates. If you happen to be in the middle of a metropolitan area, you’re in luck: you will receive a detailed map of all parking options available near your location. But, as you can see from the screenshot below, parking information is limited outside of metropolitan areas.
But as long as you’re near a metropolitan area, you’ll receive lots of information about the parking options available to you, including the location and detailed information about the parking lot or garage, including rates, hours and more. You simply choose a parking option and click through to see a screen which includes every piece of information you could want to know about it, as shown below.
This app is a must-have for the frequent traveler. No more driving around aimlessly trying to find parking and paying exorbitant rates simply because you’re too tired to keep looking. Instead, you can just fire up this app and find the closest, cheapest parking nearby. And best of all–it’s free!
