Never forget where you park or your favourite places you want to go back to by using this free application that can work online or offline on your mobile phone.

 

Try https://bennyinwa.github.io/WhereDidIPark on your mobile Chrome browser and click on triple dot on your top right-corner of your browser and click 'Add to Home screen' in order to add an icon on your phone so that it can be opened easily when you need it just like the native application.

 

I've written this application free and safe to access for anyone. If you guys find it handy, please let me know by commenting on my blog http://askbenfirst.blogspot.com.au/.

 

Thanks and have a good day!

Hi Cadman & Moderator,

 

I'd reword my free app contribution to this forum as follows. I promise there will be no ads. This is just to share my creation for everyone who needs it.

 

Never forget where you were anymore

 

I've created an HTML5 application to help myself remember places when I'm travelling overseas, interstate, new neighbourhood such as junk collection, crowded restaurant and street parking and fishing spots recently:)

 

This application is safe and easy to use as it saves your photo, GPS coordinate with date/time stamp only on your phone (not internet). It also works online and offline and supports multiple languages. I found it's very handy when going overseas where I didn't have internet connection most of the time.

Please let me know your thoughts and I'll try to improve it overtime. Thanks.

This app is complementing Google Map and is has been simplified to be user friendly with one press of a button to save photo and geolocation and date/timestamp in one place.

 

Also if you download Google Map offline before travelling, you can use this app to help you navigate to the crowded restaurants you've taken picture of previously or when you do street or indoor parking.

 

Hope this explain the purpose of the app. If you add the app to you phone homescreen, you can use it easily when you spot any place you'd like to go back to with picture memory:)

 

Thanks for trying it out and your query.

 

Have a good day!

I'd love to hear more about the restaurant navigation part.

 

 

 

Photo of parking location is a little more than google maps naively does, is a benefit.

Could be rather useful, I suspect, for those who are developing a cognitive impairment, at least in the early stages

Uses the front camera on my Galaxy, so I can only do selfies.
