There are times when you tend to forget where you parked your car, especially when you're out shopping at a large mall or for any other purpose -- happens with me quite often, mostly when I'm out for shopping with my wife as I find it quite difficult to remember the bay number and floor. If you're a Windows Phone user, haunted by the same problem, it's time you take a look at Park It for Windows Phone.
It's basically a parking reminder app, which saves the location where you parked your car. You can even add notes to the entry which mentions any information related to the parking spot, and even take a snapshot which can be added to it. The app also give users the ability to setup reminders, and provide directions to the parking spot from your current location using maps when you are ready to leave. It will show you the distance as well as the time it will take to reach your parking spot while you're walking.
