Just Released – “Take Me To My Car” Solves One Of Life’s Little Problems

On September 14, 2008

Now this is a cool little app that could come in quite handy!

How many times have you parked your car in a lot along with hundreds or thousands of other cars only to discover upon your return that you haven’t the foggiest idea where the damn thing is??

You wander around looking for it.

"Man," you think to yourself, "I never knew there could be so many Subaru Outbacks in one place!"

Then you get a great idea.

You pull out your keys and start pressing the automatic door lock so you can see the headlights flash and hear that familiar "beep". The problem is… you have to be within range for it to work and the parking lot is HUGE!!!

With your iPhone 3G and "Take Me To My Car" this will never happen again…

Take Me to My Car is a unique little app that records your car’s (or anything else for that matter) location so you can find it later. According to the developer-

How many times did you forget where you parked your car? This application solves the problem: with only one tap save your current position and next time you start the app you’ll have walking directions to your car in front of you! What if you parked in a garage or lot? You can use this app as a compass: we display the distance and the map will tell you the direction. Browse or pinch to zoom in/out. Everything is within one tap, it is simple, accurate, and, most importantly, free (unlike our competitors)! Please note that the application works best on 3G iPhone. We apologize in advance for any geographic inaccuracies that may arise on the original non-3G iPhone.

Would I pay for an app like this? Nope, especially when I don’t know how accurate it will be. Then again, since it is free… I don’t have to.
