PARKING NOW EASIER IN VANCOUVER WITH A IPHONE APP!!

What's up people. Just wanted to share this find I came across.

Ran across this really good app called "Park 'in' Spot" on iPhone.
Pretty awesome actually cause it shows all the free street parking in Vancouver's popular areas.

I'm a pretty cheap guy and hate paying for parking so this is pretty damn awesome.

Not only does it show all the free street parking they have it so that it shows the locations of all the parking meters (and the rates) and Parking lots with rates too.

Sure as hell makes my daily driving easier! just wanted to let everyone know about it on here, might be useful to you too.

Here's the link to it:

http://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/park-...417564362?mt=8

and they got like a blog going on here if anyone is interested
http://parkinspot.wordpress.com


Cheers!

still isn't updated though. I emailed the developers about that. West Broadway, west of Burrard is all meter parking now but their app shows time limit parking. I contacted them over one month ago about it.

I always just park outside the Boston Pizza and walk across the street. Watch out though, I've seen two fobs j-walk and got a ticket for it.

You can park in permit areas after hours? I thought you're not allowed to do that anytime?
