[prMac.com] Boston, Massachusetts - iStormApps today is pleased to announce version 1.5 of Honk, an iOS App that packs four superb functions for auto-drivers in one elegant package for iPhones and now native for iPads: Parking meter alarm, Find your Car, Handwriting and photo memo, and Find Nearby places.
Honk has been called "Swiss army knife of parking apps". What sets Honk apart from other Apps is its super simple interface for setting the parking meter alarm: Just swipe your finger across its main meter and this small, habit-forming app will save you from numerous future parking tickets. But don't be deceived by its simplicity. Among its finely engineered features: it is the only app that shows the remaining minutes on its icon, providing peace of mind even without having to open the app to check its meter. There are numerous other details that users will truly appreciate as their score rises against the dreaded parking ticket ladies.
When the alarm is set, Honk automatically records the location on the built-in map. You may manually move it if the GPS signal fails to give you satisfactory accuracy.
