[prMac.com] Boston, Massachusetts - Do you own an iPhone? Do you drive? Then you need Honk. Honk is an App that will save you from the next parking ticket and help you find your way back to the car. With the minute-by-minute update of the remaining meter time on its Icon badge, a quick glance will give you peace of mind.
Unlike other apps, it is super simple to use: Simply swipe your finger across the meter to set how long you plan to park. As you quit Honk, it will mark your parking location on the map, and when the time comes to head back to your car, it will honk you.
Have you ever forgotten where you parked, and embarrassed yourself on the wrong floor, while your spouse and children had to follow you along one painful step after another? And it was January in Boston? Some apps try to help you, but their overcomplicated controls make you feel like you are trying to crack open a federal bank vault instead of just marking your parking spot.
Use Honk's simple note pad to scribble down your spot, in a language of your choice, using the most trusted tool you have: your index finger. It also allows you to take a snapshot of your spot and superimpose the photo on your handwritten memo. Of course, Honk has a built-in map and compass with useful functions to guide you safely back to your parked car.
Swipe. Scribble. And Quit. Parking has never been this fun! Honk if you agree.
