BestParking: The Latest AppRadio Compatible App

BestParking has added AppRadio support
Update: AppRadio screenshots have been uploaded. Click here.

Just a few minutes ago I saw an update available for the parking finder app, BestParking, with Pioneer AppRadio support added. I've used BestParking for a while now and it's quite good.
It is, however, useful only if you live in or travel to big cities like San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York etc. You can also search by location or neighborhood within a city. Most of the airports within the U.S. are also supported. Parking prices can sometimes be quite high in such metros but with BestParking you can be sure you are getting some of the cheapest prices around. There is also support for a few Canadian cities like Montreal, Vancouver and Toronto. A complete list of cities is at the bottom.

I drive to San Francisco a lot so this app has been very useful to me personally. And now with AppRadio support it just completes the circle. I haven't seen the AppRadio interface yet but the interface on the iPhone is pretty neat. I will test this out soon with my AppRadio and report back with some screenshots. For now, here is what's new in BestParking version 1.7:

  • Monthly Parking
  • Pioneer AppRadio support (Click "Upgrade" on the homepage to purchase this feature for $2.99)
  • Report inaccurate rates
  • Bug fixes
AppRadio support can be purchased for $2.99
The AppRadio support is an in-app purchase for $2.99. After launching the app you click on "Upgrade" at the top of the home screen and purchase the support as a one-time fee. 

The only gripe I have so far about the app is that it seems like not all pages were made for the retina display. A few screens are low resolution, including the app icon. The maps, however, are in a higher resolution and look good on the phone. Hopefully the app will be in high resolution soon. 

Here are the cities that are supported: Atlanta, Austin, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Dallas, Dayton, Denver, Des Moines, Detroit, Fort Lauderdale, Fort Worth, Houston, Indianapolis, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Memphis, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Montreal, New Orleans, New York, Newark, Oakland, Omaha, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Portland, Sacramento, Salt Lake City, San Antonio, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose, Seattle, Spokane, Toronto, Vancouver, Washington D.C..

  5. Appradio is such a useful tool. I used it every time I travel, when we went to Manila and booked some cheap flights to cebu tickets, we needed a parking space that’s why I immediately looked up for Appradio.
