Nosey Parker for iPhone 1.3

When visiting a new town or city, one of the most irritating aspects of the day is likely to be the task of finding a parking space. While regular visitors to the town will undoubtedly know where all of the local car parks can be found, including those that are free, visitors are likely to opt to use the first one they stumble across. With Nosey Parker installed on your iPhone you can be sure that you will always be able to track down the neatest car park and ensure that you are not paying over the odds.

The app uses the iPhone's GPS functionality to determine your location and will then display a map indicating the location of all of the car parks in the area. Working from a database of almost 14,000 car parks, no matter where you are in the country, the app should be able to find you somewhere to leave your car for the day.

But Nosey Parker is not just useful when it comes to finding the nearest car park. In many instances the app will be able to warn you in advance how much you can expect to pay to park up for a period of time - and will highlight free car parks. Nosey Parker displays information about the car parks in its database in addition to pricing. You can find car parks that have disabled parking, those that accept credit cards and check how long each is open for.

As well as using your location to find car park, Nosey Parker can also be used to plan ahead by using the search facility to look for car parks in a town, city or postcode. This simple app can save you money by pointing you in the direction of the nearest free parking areas, but will also save you time, leaving you to enjoy the rest of your day.
