Honk - Park, Swipe to set Parking Meter Alarm and Find Your Car! is a great app. Honk is simple and elegant and includes little things like updating your app icon with remaining time on your meter. Beyond the basic photo capture capability, the app will let you annotate on top of that photo to truly capture where you are. Also included is a map which automatically drops a pin when you park to make it easy to find your car. Finding your way back to the car is the only area that could be improved, as many of the other apps have more detailed and helpful maps. Still, no other app is as simple, reliable and elegant to use.

Simply swipe your finger across the meter to set how long you plan to park.
