AA intros car parking space locator app

Have you paid and displayed?

Build a business case: developing custom apps

Not sure where to find your nearest NCP? Drivers can now look it up on an iPhone thanks to the Automobile Association.

The AA has released an app that allows you to enter a location and get a map showing where you'll find parking bays, be they free or not. Street parking options appear to have been omitted, however.

And to save you from driving to your chosen car park only to find it full, alongside the opening times and charges the app will, where it can, tell you how many available spaces there are. You can help keep the database up to date, by reporting space availability yourself.

The AA said the app will also guide you straight to the selected car park.

Early feedback on the iTunes App Store suggests the app's not half bad at listing car parks outside the major metropolises.

AA Parking costs £1.79, but it's a shame the AA has included in-house adverts too. You can download it here. ®
