Google [GOOG] has released a new Android application called Open Spot, which works with Android 2.0 and above. The Open Spot application lets you search for unclaimed parking spaces that have been reported to the service by other Open Spot users.
Once someone has left a particular parking space they can report this to the service, and then other users will be able to find the vacant parking spaces in their area.
Whilst this does seem like a useful application, there is just one thing that it doesn’t take into account, other people who don’t use the service parking in the spot, so by the time you get there someone else could have claimed it.
The Google One Spot application is available as a free download from the Android Market. Have a look and our article on Android vs iPhone to see which smartphone and mobile platform is best for you.
