Honk is an App that saves you from another parking ticket with a swipe of your finger. It also help you find your way back to the car through its unique handwritten memo, photo, voice memo and automatic GPS functions. Newly added: a single tap, it will take you to the step-by-step walking instruction to your car!
Honk also sports the widely praised "minute-by-minute" display of remaining time on the meter on its Icon badge. It even helps you locate nearby ATMs, cafes, Parking garages and, gas stations.

Simply swipe your finger across the meter to set how long you plan to park. As you quit Honk, it will mark your parking location on the map, and when the time comes to head back to your car, it will honk you. On your home screen, its icon will also display the remaining minutes. Just a quick glance, you can go back to your important conversation with a peaceful mind! It even features sync alarm/gps between your iPhone, iPad and even Macs via your cloud-shared Calendar!

Have you ever forgotten where you parked, and embarrassed yourself on the wrong floor, while your family had to follow you along one painful step after another. During winter in Boston? Overcomplicated controls in most apps make you feel like you are trying to heist a federal bank?

Use Honk's simple note pad to scribble down your spot, in a language of your choice, using the most trusted tool you have: your index finger. It also allows you to take a snapshot of your spot and superimpose the photo on your handwritten memo. Of course, Honk has a built-in map with useful functions to guide you safely back to your parked car.

Even if it save you from a few parking tickets, it pays you back 100 times over!

- Updates your remaining time on its App Icon. A quick glance at your home screen, your mind at peace.

Comments and Ratings for Honk - Find Car, Parking Meter Alarm and Nearby Places

Lousy interface (1.7.0)
12/3/2016 4:20:00 PM 2/5 By 410T
If you use it once in a while, it's not worth the time to re learn the non intuitive functionality. A text menu and map would be more helpful. Nice idea, hopefully the developer will improve the interface.

Gorichon (1.7.0)
11/7/2016 2:47:00 PM 5/5 By Gorichon
All my friends know this app because of me. We all find it very useful

Issues With iOS 10 (1.7.0)
10/11/2016 8:01:00 PM 2/5 By ChronosAgnt7
I use this all the time and used to love it. However, the app no longer gives accurate countdown times on the app icon in iOS 10. Unless they update it, I'll probably be switching to a different app.

No support for this old app (1.7.0)
9/24/2016 8:13:00 PM 1/5 By TelcoTom
It worked great for a while. Now when the time expires it goes back to the parking meter and you lose the map location. I sent two emails to them requesting support and no answer from developers. Do not purchase this old buggy app that does not offer support!

Great Parking App (1.7.0)
4/11/2016 3:26:00 PM 5/5 By Gabriel Chung
Love it works well!

Terrible interface (1.7.0)
1/21/2016 4:41:00 AM 1/5 By Mike333333
Is not accurate at all.

Remarkably bad user interface (1.7.0)
6/6/2015 2:07:00 AM 1/5 By Eben.Visher
Not only is the user interface very difficult to figure out, but things don't even work right. For example, the button of with a picture of a car with a stake through its heart never did anything. The introductory video said that that button was supposed to be for marking my parking spot. Actually, without any explanation, the video said that two separate buttons did the same thing. Anyway, one of them would never work or do anything no matter what I tried. I suppose that some people can figure this app out. However, given that there are lots of apps that do this and have a good designs, I see no reason to waste time with this app.

Worthless (1.7.0)
11/14/2014 1:00:00 PM 1/5 By Qwerty12321abc
User interface is beyond convoluted and over complicated. Tried using it 4 times to locate my car in a parking garage but still can't figure how to use it properly. Worthless.

Best alarm clock app (1.7.0)
9/23/2014 2:43:00 AM 5/5 By Jinhongk
I somehow needed to setup an alarm to pick up my kid (2 hours after drop off). I've never like turning those silly wheels in the clock app again and again to setup a quick alarm. With Honk, one swipe is all I need to do.

Could u add url scheme (1.7.0)
9/14/2014 2:21:00 AM 4/5 By Zheng-Yu YANG
I need the url scheme to use it in launch center pro. Thank you very much.

From this dev.
