A smartphone application promises to find free parking

Open Spot is an application for Google Android which doesn’t promise something new, but comes with an interesting approach: to make a map of free parking.

The application works with Google Maps and uses GPS tracking and tagging support. Users actions are, however, essential. Without them the application becomes useless.

Basically, the action arises as follows: the phone holder with Google’s Android operating system, having installed the Open Spot application, will check when he parkes and when he leaves a parking lot. Thus, other users, all owners and all Android phones using the Open Spot application will see when someone has parked on a specific place.

The signs are very simple. When the user has parked in a place, a red indicator appears. When departing from that place, the indicator becomes green. Each user can thus see free and busy parking spaces nearby. Obviously, it’s not everywhere, but only those covered by other users using this application.

From theory to practice is a long way and for this system to become truly useful, it will take time. Moreover, the idea is very good. If there were a universal system for all mobile devices, it could be really effective.

Like any application for Google Android, Open Spot can be downloaded from the Android Market.
