    Great idea, thanks.

    Maybe all letters A-Z and for the parkings name (like Goofy u others) a text field.

    Thanks again.

    Would be cool if you started the app when you get out of the car and it used the accelerometer to log your walking path to the entrance of wherever you were going then on the way back it could draw you a map to your car.

    Hi guys,

    Thanks for all the ideas, however there is one limitation you must understand, an iphone app can never run in background. therefore your ideas about counters and accelerometer pathways is only achievable if you leave your iphone on when you are walking.

    One of the possibilities is relating the counter to the iphone time. So when you open the app, deducted by the iphone time (which is the current time) will give you the remaining time of the counter. However that means, you can only check on the status when you think the time is right, you cant get the program to alert you. (kinda defeats the purpose then)

    Great app, I would have never thought of it. I will use it all the time now instead of using my very unreliable memory

    bet me to it, im sure u can have the app let u set a time and then the app send a command to save an alert to the calendar app, and then even if u close it the calendar event alert will still go off

    don't that kinda defeats the purpose? i mean, you can just set an appointment in a calendar app. haha. i will see what i can do about it.

    i also receive alot of emails asking for A-Z to be implemented, as well as more digits. well guys, good news is in the next release you can just set as many digits as you need in the settings!

    Also, I will upload nightly releases of my apps on my site from now on, so incase you are curious >> iphone.wahkiz.com ^^

    Hi guys!

    Just want to inform you guys that a minor release has been released! As it is a minor release, I decided to just put a link on my site. Go to : http://iphone.wahkiz.com/#ipark to get it.

    Basically what this version does is add A-Z support , and resets the parking lot number without shutting off the whole app. Other functions will be added in the major release.

    Default Another mode with an arrow idea
    Interesting idea. Out here in the 'burbs we don't have any parking ramps to keep track of levels, and most lots don't have #'s, just lots of big parking lots. I've seen another way of doing it. Here is a compass keychain fob that someone makes.

    An approch you could take on the iPhone/iPod would be to have a mode where there would be an arrow that could be rotated. A person would get out of their car, stand behind the car with the side of the iPhone/iPod parallel to the car and the top parallel to the building your going into. Then just rotate the arrow until it points at the door that you will be entering/exiting. When you come out hold the iPhone/iPod with the bottom parallel to the building and the arrow will point in the direction of your car. I've seen little keychain devices much simpler then the compass one that simply have a dial with an arrow on it.

    Of course both modes could be used so when you get up to the parking ramp level you set in the first mode you can see when direction from the door your car is.

    Attached is my quick mockup.

    In the case of pointing the arrow, the accelerometer wouldn't be involved. Just use a finger to rotate the arrow to the right direction by dragging it on the bottom part of the arrow.
