Downtown Parking Made Easy!

I often hear people complaining that they avoid downtown because they don’t know where to park.  I just learned about a new app from Texas Public Radio called Pango.  This app, in real time, shows where you can park and the current cost.  In the past, I have only been able to find the location of city owned lots, garages and meters through a non-gps map (let me know if there is one out there). I like that the app does include non-city owned parking including businesses with their own parking such as a hotel. The app seems pretty user friendly and if you click on a particular parking spot, you will be given details such as method of payment accepted and other parking features (e.g. Valet, Overnight Parking, Elevator).

At this time, the app is available for Iphone, Android and Blackberry.

So what do you think, will you be downloading this app?
