Apps for May 13, 2012

Parking Meter Pro

Parking Meter Pro is an app that keeps track of your parking status so that  your parking meter will not run out before you are done at your destination. You choose from 5, 10, 15, 30 and 45 minutes as well as 1, 2, 3, 4, and 8 hours. If you have a time limit that isn’t listed, you can select the other button and put in how much time you have left. There is also a “no limit,” button.  That can be used if you are parked in a lot that charges you to park per hour so you won’t have to spend so much getting your car out of that lot.

When the time is up you will be altered stating that the meter has run out. You can also have the app remind you before the meter runs out either 15, 10, 5 or 2 minutes before it runs out which can be done in the settings. Also you can get alerted when you are in the “No Time Limit” mode  which you can have it alert you ever hour if you wish.

My Takeout Menus

My Takeout Menus keeps track of all your to go menus all in one place electronically. All you do is search for the restaurant and the city it is locate or you can enter in the company’s telephone number. If there is a menu online, you can tell the app to download it  which will be stored within the app. If by any chance you don’t have a menu ready to download, kind of like a local one location business that doesn’t have an online presence. If that ever happens, you can take a photo of the menu, and it will do the rest.
