SO Handy! New iPhone App Finds Parking Spaces

| Filed under: Tech Talk

new iphone app finds parking spaces

Forget Angry Birds! This is WAY more useful!

Streetline's new Parker app, which costs $1.99, locates available parking spaces for users. So cool!

The app currently works in the Hollywood district of El Lay and NYC's Roosevelt Island. It will be adding Washington, D.C's Fort Totten Metro station soon, and Salt Lake City will be coming later in 2011.

Here's Streetline CEO Zia Yusuf on the parking technology:

"We want to make guided parking as prevalent as the traffic light. Five to seven years from now, kids will say 'What do you mean you used to look for parking? Didn't they just tell you where the parking spots were?' I think that's going to become a reality."

This is great! Not only is it handy, but it could help reduce road rage. People can get pret-ty grumpy while circling endlessly through overcrowded parking lots. We're on board!

Will U pick up the Streetline Parker app when/if it becomes available for your area?

    "How Parker works: Streetline installed battery-powered sensors in parking spaces in the Hollywood district of Los Angeles, a 20-block area. The sensors communicate with a receiver on a nearby lamp pole, which connects to a data center in Dallas, which in turn communicates with the iPhone app."

    That sounds pretty good.

    This will promote people to use their phones while they are driving, not very well thought out.

    Uhm…How would this would be any different from texting & driving? Wouldn't this potentially be dangerous?

    Sounds stupid. People don't need to be using their phones and driving, this is bound do cause some damage.

    Thanks for posting how it works. I dont' think it's going to fly, seems to be a lot of future cost involved.
