7 Best Parking App For iPhone

Metropolitan areas like New York City, Boston, Minneapolis, and Chicago are super exciting. There’s all sorts of different foods to try, sights to see, and things to do. If you’re a business professional, there’s a lot of networking to be had and money to be made in these cities as well. Unfortunately, whether you’re traveling for fun or for work, find parking can eat into your time substantially, and that’s just because there’s so many people visiting and working in these major locations. Luckily, with the way technology is these days, you can save yourself plenty of time by using a parking app to find yourself parking.

Not sure which one to pick up for your iPhone? Follow along below, and we’ll show you some of our favorites. Here are our top picks.

PayByPhone Parking

Want an easy way to pay for your parking, instead of having to shove coins in a meter like a caveman? Then you’ll want to make sure that you have PayByPhone Parking on your phone — park your car at a meter, enter in the location tag into the app, and you’ll be able to assign that meter to your car. You can enter in how much you want to pre-pay for your parking, and PayByPhone will even send you a notification when you’re running out of time. PayByPhone Parking is actually one of the few ways you can pay for parking with your Apple Watch, too!
