It's simple. I'm at the beach, or the mall, or in the city, and I slowly drive round and round the jammed lot, looking for a parking space. Finally, I locate one, park, and go in. But I wasn't paying that much attention, and when I come out, I can't remember where I parked! So I checked out the apps that purport to remember where you parked, and there are a bunch of them. But frankly, I didn't like them. So I wrote my own - ParkTime. A big arrow points straight to my car! It's almost a no brainer, but no other app I saw had this. Using the location of you and your car, and the iPhone's compass, the arrow keeps pointing at the car no matter which way you are facing. Plus, it has a map, a compass, and a timer showing how long you parked, or how much time is on the meter. It'll notify you before the meter expires, so you can get back to feed it in time. Finally, it shows info and lets me control it right from my Apple Watch. It's everything I want in a parking app, and I hope you'll find it useful too!

After delivering so many products that do such great things, it can be strange to have a product that excels at doing so little. And that's what makes the Apple Watch so great.

Here is a product I want for the Apple Watch: A charger, just like the current charger cable, but without the USB cable. Instead, it should have a Lightning socket. This way I can plug any of my current Lightning cables into the charger and have it work. The idea is one cable and the coin-size charger disc is all I need to carry around to charge phone and watch on the go.

I like my newsreader, NewsBrain, better than either of these. Learns fast, looks beautiful, independently developed rather than made by multimillion corporations, no ads, can even read articles aloud in the car or bus or while you run. And, I made it free this weekend, so get it on your iDevice and tell your friends now before it goes back to $5.. Then, review it on iTunes! 
CNN bought the news-aggregation service Zite to get a fast track in the mobile space, but it never gained much ground versus Zite's archrival, Flipboard.

The NewsBrain 1.4 iOS app is out today! NewsBrain selects from millions of Internet article sources, pre-reads articles to determine relevance to your specific interests, then shows the best ones up front in a beautiful magazine format. It actually learns what you like, personalizing itself for you automatically. It can read articles aloud, and it now includes Apple Watch support! Get the details and grab it for your i-device on the app store at http://appstore.com/newsbrainthesmartmagazine

If "horrific" means "causing horror"; why doesn't "terrific" mean "causing terror"?
