One of the biggest hassles and time consuming things about driving into the city, is parking. Street parking is the preference most of the time because it is cheaper, which makes it difficult to find. That's where parking garages come in handy, but are not always guaranteed a spot. But how can one find out if there is a parking spot in the garage? There's no way to know until you take the time to enter the garage and roam around hunting for that one free spot. With this new app, it will not only tell you if the garage has open parking spaces, but it will also show you a map of the exact spot in that specific garage that is open. This way you won't have to enter a garage only to find that it has no open spaces, but you will also save time by knowing exactly where to go.






ParkWhiz: ParkWhiz is an app recommended by Forbes because it promises to help save you more money than all the rest. While most apps can only promise savings of about 50%, this app promises savings of up to 60%. The app will help you compare, reserve, and pre-pay for parking in no time.

ParkingPanda: This app sets itself apart by partnering with a slew of professional sports leagues, stadiums and family attractions so you can find a spot near your event. A referral program lets users earn free parking.

AirportParkingReservations: As the name says, this app is all about airport parking in the United States, Canada and United Kingdom, promising discounts of up to 70 percent at partner facilities. The site also operates ParkSleepFly, a site devoted to said deals, where travelers pay for a single night's stay at an airport hotel in a package that allows them to leave their vehicle at the hotel's parking facilities until they return (usually includes a shuttle to the terminal).

• Parking Mate: Parking Mate shows you where the closest and safest places are to park.
