Park Me Right Uses Augmented Reality For Its Best Purpose Yet: Finding Your Car!

Oct 18, 2012

Park Me Right is a parking app with a neat twist: the ability to easily find where your a car is parked based on augmented reality. It starts out simply like a parking app works, by saving the GPS location of the car. Then, when it comes time to find said vehicle, fire up the app again, and use the “Find Car” button. This launches an augmented reality view that will point in the direction of the car. It can also show how long the car has been parked, in case it’s time to go feed the meter. When done, just un-save the parking spot, and presto. Technically, it could be used to find anything that can be precisely GPS located. The app also has a map view of nearby parking garages and buildings with parking, helpful for when out and about on the town. It’s also possible to share parking location, though we wouldn’t suggest sharing to Twitter. No one needs to know that. But what’s the best part? The app is available for free from Google Play.
