Finding for parking spot is a bitch especially on the weekends which seems impossible. Now Google has introduced Open Spot, a service that helps people to find parking space by telling them that you’re leaving. To reward people who share, there’s even a karma points system that rewards those who share their parking info.
It is a pretty simple and nice app which certainly helps when it comes to weekend mad rush. However since it uses GPS, we doubt that it will work for shopping malls where car parks are mostly underground with no satellite reception. Being in Malaysia, most of us prefer not to park in open spaces due to our hot weather.
Another thing to note is that Open Spot is only available in the US, Canada and Netherlands with Android phones version 2.0 and above.
