Spot Switch offers possible parking options

A friend (thanks Paul) turned me onto an another parking app (Spot Switch) which does a lot of what Sally Park (blog review) does, with the added bonus of being a parking spot sharing application.

The idea is this: You find a SWEET spot on the streets of NYC or Hoboken and park your car. When you return (or just before), you press the car icon in the application and then alert the system (pressing the key icon) that you will be leaving shortly.

Now, with the power of users and sharing, someone else in the area with the application can see that a spot is opening up shortly, where (approximately) the car is located and what kind of car (e.g. black crown victoria). Very smart! Spot Switch is free and worth a shot. It can keep track of your car (which is a huge plus) but also with the power of users can minimize the joy of circling the streets of your city waiting for that blinker and the car to pull out just in front of you…
