I'm sure your city is just the same as the one that I live in. Clogged and hard to find a park. ParkMe is a very well researched free transport application that amalgamates official traffic and parking information to provide free parking spots in major US cities.

ParkMe suggests to me that this is an app that the savvy resident or traveler will gobble up to get one up on the rest of the city.
