parkken App Answers CAN I PARK HERE? Queries to Tell Drivers Exactly Where to Park on the Streets of Manhattan. ANY time of day! ANY time of year!

NEW YORK, Nov. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- CAN I PARK HERE? is the most simple question that New York drivers ask themselves on a daily basis, but as any Manhattan driver knows there is nothing simple about getting the answer… until now. Launched this Fall, parkken, is an iPhone app that answers those very questions with very specific answers. By tapping on its map screen, or filling in any other time and place in the CAN I PARK HERE? query box, the parkken App calculates the current or future legal parking available on that block.

The parkken app is the latest offering from Parallel Spaces Maps, LLC whose previous app was a map of Manhattan that utilized an unusual set of clock symbols and barbed wire to visualize a block's parking rules. While those symbols depicted parking rules in a novel way, they were, at first glance, a little daunting.  The parkken app  takes the next, more convenient step and translates those symbols to answer specific parking queries for any block in Manhattan.

The app is fairly self explanatory. By pressing on the map screen, you launch the CAN I PARK HERE query box. The time and place are automatically filled in. You can hit "Search" or, if you prefer, fill in any other time and place and the App calculates the legal parking available on that block for when and where you requested. If legal parking is not immediately available the app responds with the soonest time free or metered parking will be allowed. The responses extend to the future to include when legal parking will no longer allowed or if the free legal parking will change to metered parking.

The map view motif of clocks and barbed wire offer additional parking details for those with the gumption to explore its symbols. Those efforts can pay off as once you are accustomed to reading them, they can paint in broad strokes the parking rules for a whole neighborhood at once. Of course, there are times when you have to park but can't seem to find a space anywhere and for those moments parkken shows small, green, dollar-like symbols to indicate pay garages and/or lots in the vicinity.

Tom Hibbard of Parallel Spaces Maps who designed the app, says "This began as a personal need and then a personal obsession for an easy to understand, condensed view of parking rules in Manhattan. It has become a tool everyone can use."

So far, the app only works for non commercial vehicles, but Mr. Hibbard has offered to make a commercial vehicle version if there is demand for it.  Other features of the app are an address Search function, a Favorites bookmark function for neighborhoods where you go often, and a GPS locator button.
