ParkMe, Parking Helper, Launches Android App

Parking your car just got easier for Android users. ParkMe, the free iOS app that helps you find parking spots based on your location, is now available as an Android app.

The free app uses your location information to identify parking options in your vicinity. The app serves up a map with information on parking lost and garages in your area, as well as the rates that these places charge to help you compare costs. Once you find a lot you’d like to park in, the app will give you directions direct to the lot’s driveway, not just their street address.

Using a meter or a lot with limited time available? The app also has a parking timer to help you avoid getting a ticket or getting towed. In some markets, the tool also has a real time space view tool, so that you can see how many spots are actually available in real time.
