This week we have come across two other applications that our readers may be interested in.
The first comes from The City of Eugene, in Oregon, US, where a small, free application called “Epark” was developed, which shows all available parking options, both on-street, and off-street, managed by the City administration. It provides information on every regulated parking space/zone (meters, signs, etc) across 4 square miles of regulated parking (78 linear kerb miles). Whilst it allows users to sort by meter time limits or sign types (i.e. commercial spaces, ADA spaces), at this point in time, it does not tell the user whether the space is occupied.

The second app we have come across is perhaps a little more light-hearted; a parking game, designed for the iPad; called ‘Parking Mania’. A driving and parking game, the user tilts the iPad or uses their finger on a sliding device to control and park the cars.
