We all know how it works these days… we now use our phones and apps to find out about basically anything: From discovering new bars and great places to eat, to seeing if any of our friends are nearby, to find a potential date or to remember where we parked our car.

Basically, our smartphone is the one device we cannot live without; the biggest helper, extreme knowledge source or a great travel partner.

Finding a parking spot is never easy.
