The application allows users to decipher a New York City street parking sign by snapping a photo using the “Snap it! Park it!” button. Based on the sign image reader and the time on your device, the application will simply say “Parking Allowed” or “No Parking Allowed”. A timer will tell you how long until you have to move your car. Once you determine whether it is legal to park, tap “Park It!” to start your meter. The parking meter will count down based on the max time that you are allowed to park in that given spot. Your device will be alerted when your meter is 15 minutes from expiring. The app also keeps track of where you parked. Need help getting back to your car? After tapping the “Park it!” feature – not only does your parking meter automatically begin, but a pin is dropped in the location of where your vehicle is parked. A map will keep track of where your car is, and allow you to easily get directions back. The map button brings up a street by street map of where both you and your vehicle are currently located. The “Map it” feature will give you turn by turn directions back to the location of your car.

"The app is attractive and easy to use..." The New York Times

New York, NY (PRWEB) March 13, 2012

Have you ever parked on the street in any of the five boroughs in New York City? Did you ever wonder what the parking signs actually mean?

The development team at Can I Park Here, LLC created a simple-to-use iPhone app that allows users to decipher any parking sign in New York City with a touch of the button.

Almost all residents, commuters, city visitors, Broadway theatre enthusiasts, museum goers, and restaurant dwellers are aware that a parking garage in New York City can cost on average $40 per visit. Even worse, a street parking ticket can be more then $100. But how much would a tow to the pound cost? Don’t even ponder it; just download the app for a one time fee of $1.99.

“After returning to my car one evening in Tribeca after a delightful dinner with friends, I was shocked to see a parking ticket on my windshield after reading what I thought was an “allowed to park” sign on a 4-sign pole of confusion,” says Michael Fasano, one of the team’s developers. “Our team developed a simple to use app to avoid this problem, using the public data that New York City provides through the Department of Transportation”.

In just 2 months, the app has made headlines in major local newspapers, news channels, and radio stations such as The New York Times, CBS News, ABC 7, 1010 WINS Radio, CNN’s Top 50 New Tech Tools You Should Know About, WPIX News, and the NY Daily News.

So why buy this app? If you drive into New York City at least once per year to visit friends, have fun, or go to work…you should own this app. This is an essential tool for driving and parking on the street in one of the biggest cities in the world. Save yourself time and money.
