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 (5s, 6 or 6 Plus) 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 5s, 6, or 6 Plus?
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.

Ratings and Reviews
Best parking app with beautiful interface
I've tried a lot of parking apps but I've settled on this for its highly functional and beautiful interface that makes using it a joy.
Top notch customer support too. Courteous and prompt reply that answered my question. Also well received my suggestion to support setting to use Google maps instead of Apple maps.
Best Parking App!
Tried other ones and this one takes the cake. It's so simple and clean looking. Just what I've been searching for. Seriously love it! I've been using it for a while now and still recommend it to my family members and friends all the time.
For me it’s a poor app. Say I go to Costco. I set a pin at the car. When I leave the store and am faced with the huge parking lot, Parking Pin points me in the general direction. When I get within 50 yards of the car it is still pointing way off. When I get to the car, it is still showing the wrong direction and that I’m 40 ft from the car. Maybe I’m doing something wrong.. but.. I think it’s pretty poor.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
