If you have both a car and an iPhone, then you might be as excited as we are that Car Finder 2.0 is now available in the App Store! Car Finder 2.0 is chock-full of additional features and makes finding your car easier and more accurate than ever. One of the best new features of Car Finder 2.0 is Parking Meter Notification. When you mark the location of your car, you have the choice of setting a time for when your parking meter will expire and then be alerted when your parking meter is about to run out. Also, if you don’t want to use the augmented reality view to find your car, there’s now an option to just view your car on a regular map.
For those of you who haven’t heard of Car Finder, it is a super smart mobile app that uses augmented reality to help you find where you parked your car. Car Finder has been featured in many publications such as, Gizmodo, Consumer Reports, Wired Magazine, Cult of Mac, and the The Unofficial Apple Weblog. Just last week, Consumer Reports named Car Finder one of the must have smart phone applications for smart drivers.
Car Finder relies on the GPS and compass in your iPhone to accurately mark the location of your vehicle. You can see the accuracy of your GPS signal in real time and you will be alerted when you are trying to set the location of your car when the accuracy is not optimal. We use augmented reality to overlay real-time information about where your car is parked while you look at the world around you with your iPhone.
Car Finder 2.0 is available now in the App Store for $0.99. Car Finder was built by the talented mobile dev team at Intridea. Intridea offers services for application development on all major mobile platforms, including iPhone, IPad, Android, BlackBerry, and webOS.
