Today Los Angeles and parking tech company Streetline announced the release of Parker for iPhone, "the first app that gives drivers real-time parking information," according to a press release. The app is Hollywood-only right now (zinger from City Council President Eric Garcetti: "Sometimes it feels like more movie stars have been discovered in Hollywood than parking spaces."). It costs $1.99 and shows users which blocks have more than four, more than two, or fewer than two spots, plus time limits, pricing, and payment methods. The app uses data from Streetline's in-ground sensors, which in addition to Hollywood, have been installed in Studio City and parts of Chinatown, according to TechCrunch. The company's CEO says an Android app is coming in the next quarter.
