Nobody enjoys scouting around for parking lots in the city and Streetline has announced its Parker iPhone app, touted as the first application to give drivers real-time parking information and a fast way to find open metered parking spaces and nearby garages. Streetline’s patented smart parking platform detects the presence of a car through a network of ultra-low power wireless sensors located in each parking space, information that is sent to smartphones, giving drivers a live, accurate picture of available parking spaces in the city. The app currently covers areas in and around Hollywood, but it should be expanded to other locations in the near future. The app will set you back $1.99, which seems like a fair price to help you avoid going in circles when looking for parking lots.
