Android apps at AppStoreHQ
Just spotted on Hacker News: Google Labs has just released an Android app + game called Open Spot that shows a map of open parking spots (as reported by drivers). Their description says it all:
Open Spot works by letting people who are leaving parking spots share their spots with people who are searching for parking.
Start helping others find parking, and together we’ll all save time, save gas, and reduce pollution. Like to keep score? The more open spots you mark, the more parking ‘karma points’ you’ll get.
I don’t have to fight for parking all that often in Seattle, but if I still lived in San Francisco I’d have this app on my start screen for sure. Nice work, guys….
