Voted best navigational app of 2008 by my mom!

Beacon will point you back to wherever you drop a beacon. Made after losing my car in a parking lot for the 800th time.

When you park, load up Beacon and hit the giant "DROP BEACON" button. Then, when you want to find your car again, just load Beacon again and follow the arrow straight to your car. Couldn't be any easier!

Beacon will automatically adjust to your direction of travel, so the arrow will always point exactly where you need to go. BUT-it will only do so once the GPS accuracy is good. This may take a few minutes! Wait until the accuracy is less than 50 metres.

Please note that I have absolutely no control over the accuracy of the GPS receiver. That is handled 100% by the phone itself. If you find the accuracy is poor, leave it be for a minute and it'll get better and better. If you find it's too inaccurate, get a bigger car. It's a cell phone, with like eight antennas!

Soon you'll be able to switch between metric and American units. For now, just use the fact that 1 metre = 1 yard (3 feet).

What makes Beacon different from other find-my-car apps:

• Beacon is free

• No need to wait for Google Maps to load, or an animated boot sequence. Designed to be useful when it's -50 out (you're adorable, Canada)

• Flashy graphics make you look cool

• Valid medical cure for acne(*)

(*) Not a valid medical cure for acne

Not Bad

I like the idea of this app. It works as advertised. The only problem, and this is a problem with iPhone GPS in general, is it does not know which way you're facing, so the arrow points in the right direction only when you are facing north.
