"Paid for itself in one day" (5-stars) - User review.
- Meter Timer: AutoPark keeps track of time remaining on your parking meter so you can get back before you get a ticket. Get early-warning and meter-expired alarms. Let your iPhone save you money for a change.
- Car-finder: Place a marker on a map where you parked your car, then easily find your way back with the iPhone's built-in GPS.
- Parking Lots: Forgot where you parked in a big shopping mall or multi-story lot? No problem. With a few taps keep track of parking lot name, slot number, floor, color code, or section. No more wandering around lots carrying heavy bags.
- Notes and Photos: Write a note or use the iPhone's camera to take a picture and remind yourself where you parked. Also handy for remembering what your rental car looks like.
- Pre-paid Machines: Supports both time elapsed (i.e. 60m left) and clock time (i.e. valid until 11:30am) printed on tags from pre-paid ticket machines.
- Nearby Services: Search for local services near your current location, parked car, addressbook contact, or just enter an address. Have time to kill and want a cup of coffee? It can't get easier. v1.3 ships with support for:
- Coffee shops
- Fast Food
- Fire stations
- Gas stations
- Parking lots
- Police stations
- Post Offices
- Repair service
- Local Push Notification Alerts: Get alarms even when running another app or if your phone is buried in your pocket. With sound, vibration, and text alerts there's no way to miss it.
- Email: Send a formatted email message from AutoPark with all your parking data, including embedded map and attached picture. Easy way to arrange a rendezvous back at the car or when parking at the airport for a long trip.
- All maps now in standard, satellite, or hybrid (satellite+street) views.
- Extensive built-in Help: Still have questions and need to get in touch? Send tech support messages directly from inside the app.

Thank you so much for providing a a parking app that actually has all the features one would encounter when parking their car. I have tried many parking apps, before and after this app, and none can compare to this one. If I could make a suggestion that would be to make the alarm sound a little longer than what it does now. Otherwise ...... excellent app.
Absolutely Essential ...
The only thing this app doesn't do is allow you to remotely beep your horn and flash the lights. Other than that, I won't be without it! Has TOO MANY cool features to mention here, but the parking meter alarms have saved me a ton of cash already!! No more "mega-mall" parking anxiety! Choose from select services from your location! Just GREAT!
Does not work with latest iOS!!!
Do NOT download this if your phone is newer than 2 years old, because the last iOS this app supports is iOS 5!! On the latest iOS, this app does not connect to the Internet and cannot get your location, which renders the app entirely useless.
