There's not much need for this in Fairfield, Iowa, but if I were a city guy I'd depend heavily on this app. Am I the sort of person who'd forget where he parked his car? Not really, but I'm the sort of guy who worries that he will forget where he parked his car. An app like this lets you relax and forget. Park'n Find uses GPS to mark where your car is parked. It then guides you back to your parking location using a satellite image that automatically pans and zooms to show where your car is parked relative to where you are. You can optionally attach photos, voice memos, and notes. If you have an iPhone 3GS, the app includes an arrow to point you in the right direction. It has a bunch of other features, too, such as push notifications to remind you to feed the parking meter and the ability to track an unlimited number of parking locations. As always, it amazes me that developers find so many different functions for the iPhone.
