Finding a parking spot can be frustrating, but the 'ParkTag' app aims to help you park through your social network. The app developed by Digital Natives lets you know when someone else using the app is vacating their parking spot. In busy areas, this app could be a godsend.

Using geotagging, the user marks their parking space and chooses how broadly to broadcast it. You can offer your spot to just your family, friends or local community. If someone takes you up on your offer, you can both arrange a time for the spot exchange to take place.

'ParkTag' incentivizes users to participate by awarding points to generous spot holders. The points can then be used to gain priority when looking for a parking spot. When parking spaces are in high demand, points can become very useful. Stats for Social Network Parking Apps Trending: Older & Chilly
