Car Finder

Have you ever gone to the mall or an amusement park and completely forgot where you parked your car. At some point, all of us will forget to check where our car is located in  a parking lot and have to wander the lot hoping to run into it. Car Finder is an app that prevents this from happening. It uses your camera and GPS to help locate your car wherever you are. It only costs 99 cents, so at the small price of 99 cents you will never have to worry about forgetting where you parked again.
