The Park It! app was created to help drivers find the closest available parking spots near them. This app will alert you of the closest open parking spots near you by showing gray outlines in open spaces and red blocks, sectioning off parking spots that are already being used. In addition, the premium version of our app will show color coded spots specifying the type of parking space. Orange will indicate the spot has a parking time restriction and green will imply it is a permit parking space. When you pull into your spot, you check in with your spot number which will show other drivers that this spot is now unavailable. Each spot will have a number associated with it, to easily find it.
Another feature of the Park It! App will be a built in timer for certain spots that require timed parking. An example being, if one were to park in a two hour spot once you check in on our app, there will be an available option to set a two hour timer. To ensure that all available spot are shown on the app, after five hours in a parking spot a reminder will be sent to the driver asking if they are still occupying the space. If yes, they will simply click a button stating they are still using the spot and if no, then the remainder will have an ‘I left the spot’ option. With the help of all drivers using this app, Park It! will make parking fast and easy.
