Whoever said you can't save both time and money hasn't tried this parking app.
Name: ParkMe Parking
Available for: Android, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch
What it does: Provides a "heat map" of real-time parking spaces in lots and garages in 1,800 cities around the world. Sometimes you can pay in advance to reserve a spot.
What's hot: Great for business and leisure travelers alike. The app and Web version (www.ParkMe.com) will save users time and aggravation in looking for parking at a sporting event, concert, business meeting, and more. My favorite feature, besides the real-time, is that you can sort results by "Best Price" or "Least Pain." At some point, it's not worth saving $3 if you have to walk umpteen blocks to get to the cheaper lot.
What's not: I found the "Nearby Places" feature hit or miss. When I was looking near my suburban home for a family function, I found great info on a street lot. But the recommended Nearby Places were 14 to 30 miles away.
