A long time ago, I forgot where I parked my car at a San Francisco Giants game at Candlestick Park. My friend and I roamed the lot like idiots, eventually finding my vehicle once the lot was nearly empty. No, we weren't drunk--a fact that makes the story even more embarrassing.

Too bad Car Locator wasn't around back then. This $3.99 Android app uses your phone's GPS and compass, working in conjunction with Google Maps, to help you find your lost ride. If you're not sure Car Locator is worth its $4 price--hey, maybe your sense of direction is spot-on--check out the trial version first.
