Anyone who knows me well knows that I am completely non directional. Worse yet I tend to park my car and walk away not really paying any attention. So this is the app for me. I just set it up and can't wait to use it. I can set an alarm, take a picture, write myself a note. All very good things. All this for only 99 cents.

Do set up your notifications before you use this. You want to make sure everything is working.

Honk is an HD App that saves you from another parking ticket with a swipe of your finger. Honk helps find your way back to the car through its unique handwritten memo, photo, voice memo and automatic GPS functions. It also sports the minute-by-minute update of remaining time on the meter on its Icon badge. It helps you locate nearby ATMs, cafes, Parking garages and, gas stations. 

Simply swipe your finger across the meter to set how long you plan to park. As you quit Honk, it will mark your parking location on the map, and when the time comes to head back to your car, it will honk you. On your home screen, its icon will also display the remaining minutes. Just a quick glance, you can go back to your important conversation with a peaceful mind! It even features sync alarm/gps between your iPhone, iPad and even Macs via iCalendar!

Have you ever forgotten where you parked, and embarrassed yourself on the wrong floor, while your family had to follow you along one painful step after another. During winter in Boston? Overcomplicated controls in most apps make you feel like you are trying to heist a federal bank? 

Use Honk's simple note pad to scribble down your spot, in a language of your choice, using the most trusted tool you have: your index finger. It also allows you to take a snapshot of your spot and superimpose the photo on your handwritten memo. Of course, Honk has a built-in map with useful functions to guide you safely back to your parked car. -iTunes
