ParkBud Helps Keep Track of Parked Cars

iPhone owners who have a tendency to lose their parked cars but not their phones may want to check out Parkbud. The app, which touts itself as a "hand-sculpted luxury parking app", includes a number of useful features to guide users back to wherever they left their car, all wrapped in a slick and polished interface.

There are a quite a few parking reminder apps, but with a wide variety of useful features, Parkbud is one of the most complete and best at helping users avoid losing their car.



ParkBud for iPhone is $1.99 on the App Store. [iTunes]

Huh?

This article is just an ad. Very out of character for MacRumors. What's up with that?

It may or may not be a good app, but I don't like the fact that it says "★★★ON SALE FOR LIMITED TIME ONLY!!!★★★" when it started out as a free app and then was up and down between .99 and 1.99.

The current price is the highest it's ever been.:rolleyes:

Not the best way to promote your app via a major site like MR where people can be brutally honest.

Ha, at least we know someone is reading these comments. The app description no longer has this. They get a +1 for responsiveness, I guess. :D

Perhaps this should be on the sister site and not on MR itself?

Don't understand the dissing - Parkbud is a great app

I really don't understand why these people here are posting such negative comments.

I just bought this app, and quite honestly, it's freaking awesome and in my opinion the best of its kind, and i'm not some 'loser' who forgets my car all the time (if you actually read the post / watched the demo it does way more than remember your car, like keeping track of the parking meter, finding parking garages, taking notes, etc etc etc etc).

This is app is truly well developed and i will use it even when I don't have a car in the city just for the sake of showing off what a cool interface and ux it has.

The only thing I can think of is that most of you are other developers who are so offended that another app is being promoted other than your own, or you just read the title and didn't actually bother reading what you were commenting on.

Either way, as another developer myself, I say kudos to the Parkbud people since this is a super app.

Parkbud is cute, but not notable. Here's a parking app that is notable:

http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/sfpark/id426208076?mt=8&ls=1

This app shows availability of spots, not just lots and meter locations.

to be fair... that ap finds spots in SF only, certainly a curiosity but not helpful for 99& of us.
