iPhone developer releases an easy-to-use vehicle locator that uses the iPhone's navigational GPS system. The new app keeps convenience and women's safety in mind.

After an afternoon shopping at the mall or catching a game at a baseball stadium, it can be a hassle or even a challenge to find the car. For women especially, knowing where the car is parked can turn into a matter of safety in a dark parking lot or on an urban street. With these two considerations in mind, iPhone 3G application developer Su Lee embarked on creating Car Spotter - an easy-to-use vehicle locator that uses the iPhone's navigational GPS system. It is one of nine iPhone applications that Lee's company, GP Apps, has released this month.

"I'm an avid iPhone fan and I think that software applications give the device an amazing amount of potential," said Lee, the company's managing director. "One day in the parking lot I decided to test the accuracy of the phone's GPS system to pinpoint my car, and I was pleasantly surprised by the results. A few months later, after some hard work, Car Spotter was born."

To save a parked car location, users simply tap the car icon. When users are ready to find their vehicle, they tap the "Find Car" button to be safely guided back, either through a map or written street-by-street directions. The application gives users the option to zoom in on the car as well as the option to view either a traditional map or a hybrid satellite map.

In addition, the application features a built-in camera, photo log, audio recorder, and text notes - in case users need to snap a shot of a nearby landmark or jot down a note about the parking meter limit.

"The beauty of the iPhone is that each day we are discovering new ways that it can make our lives a little better or a little easier," Lee said. "Car Spotter is one of the many examples of these ingenious applications that can eliminate a small everyday worry or stress. It is one more way that we can save a few minutes in our day, prevent a hassle, or simply feel safer as we make our way home."

Car Spotter is currently available for download at the Apple iTunes Store for $0.99. Product Link.
