Android an' Droid Apps: Open Spot Crowd-Sourced Parking Space Finder

open-spot1-parking space ap.png

Open Spot is a crowd-sourced app to share the parking spot wealth or to get help finding parking spaces on your Android phone.

Open Spot shows parking spots located within a ~1.5 kilometer (km) / ~.9 mile (mi) radius of your location. As you move, Open Spot will automatically refresh to show you parking spots within a ~1.5 km / ~.9 radius of where you currently are.

The Red pins are freshly-marked spots.
while orange pins are spots marked over 5 minutes ago. Then yellow pins are spots marked over 10 minutes ago.

Parking spots are removed from the map after 20 minutes.

Although 20 minutes is a long time for a parking spot to stay open in
places where parking is hard to find, they think that knowing where
someone has recently left a parking spot might be useful information.
You may not see open  parking spots, because there may not be enough Open
users in your area.

The labs motto, "Remember, it's a big parking lot out there, but you
are not alone." They also say, "The more open spots you mark, the more
parking 'karma points' you'll get."
