[prMac.com] San Francisco, California - Lionebra Studios, an established app developer in the Android community, announced their iTunes App Store debut with the iPhone adaptation of their hit Android app, Carrr Matey(TM). A pirate-themed parking application with an amusing interface that allows the user to save his car's location, provides navigation back to the car and helps avoid parking tickets with a parking timer.
"There are few things that can ruin a mood faster than finding a parking ticket wedged beneath the windshield wiper of your car," said Eugene Markman, Founder of Lionebra Studios. "One situation that is more frustrating, however, is looking for your car in a sea of other vehicles after leaving a grocery store or a sporting event simply because you can't remember where you parked. Our spatial memory relies on points of reference, so if the cars parked around your car leave, or if you parked during day time and are returning to your car after a concert during night time, it's very easy to forget your car's location. Luckily, Carrr Matey provides a solution for both situations in a fun and effective fashion."
Carrr Matey will prove to be indispensable at shopping malls, airports, stadiums, unfamiliar streets, garages and in any and all parking situations. On top of map directions, Carrr Matey has a unique compass-navigation feature, which can guide the user where other apps cannot; users can receive navigation in the woods, in the desert and at sea! This feature is a must-have for hikers, campers, explorers and all outdoorsmen.
In the feature set, Carrr Matey includes a Travel Log, which lets the user keep track of all the visited locations and allows for easy backtracking. In Location Status, the user can get detailed information about his whereabouts, including the address and coordinates; here the user has the option to share this information with friends if he wants his location to be known - a useful feature for meeting friends at concerts and beaches. The quirky pirate theme serves to make the app's user interface very intuitive and a joy to use. Soccer moms, travelers, pirate-enthusiasts and forgetful minds rejoice!
