There are a whole lot of people who have trouble remembering whether they have put enough money on the park meter to avoid getting a ticket. And some can’t even remember where they have parked their car in the first place. These things happen everyday, and the busier you are, the more likely is the chance that you miss those small little details. As Apple loves to say, there is an app for that. Meter Maid is a cool little app that shows you how much time is remaining on your meter and where you have parked your car.
Unlike many other meter apps for iPhone, Meter Maid actually helps you avoid getting parking tickets. It also allows you to save the location of your car and get directions right back to it. You can easily customize the initial time on your meter. The app will do the rest. Before your time expires, you’ll get a push notification, so there are no excuses.
While I like the GPS feature, the notification feature comes even more handy. Sometimes you feel you are going to be away for just an hour but you end up being out for 2. With Meter Maid, you’ll know when you need to take a quick break to reset your meter. So the app pays for itself very shortly.
All in all, if you want to avoid those parking tickets and locate your parked more easily, Meter Maid is worth a try.
