Find your car app

Stop me if this sounds familiar: you've parked your car at a busy shopping mall, outside of a stadium or at a huge amusement park lot and you were in such a rush to get inside you forgot where you left your vehicle.

Providing you have an iPhone, a collection of apps called 120+ in 1 Applets ($0.99 cents) includes one simply called Parking Finder.

So long as you're outside so you can get a GPS signal, you'll tap "New Parking Spot," which pulls up Google Maps and a blue pushpin will fly down onto the satellite imagery and show you where you've parked on the planet to save the location (down to 10 meters of accuracy, the app says). You can also take a photo with your iPhone (of, say, a landmark) or type in some notes (such as "Lot 12B, third car from the back").

When you're ready to find your vehicle you can tap the icon of the pushpin to pull up the map (with directions), photo or notes.

This could be an invaluable tool while running around during holiday shopping season.

You can also save parking spots to "Favorites" -- in case you'd like to find that spot at another time -- and it preserves your notes, photo and, for those who like geographical details, you can also save the longitudinal and latitudinal info.

As the name suggests, AppBeasts' 120+ in 1 Applets has more than 120 apps, including a Twitter client, RSS aggregator, powerful photography tool (including support for tweaking brightness, contrast, tint and more), an alarm clock, tip calculator, currency converter, language translator (words and phrases), fake call (to get out of a conversation) and one called "Walk N Text" that lets you see your surroundings through the iPhone's camera while typing an SMS at the same time…

He also said that doing such a thing would not be in the best interests of his country and his people, considering many Filipinos live in the US and vice versa.
