5 Smartphone Apps on the Rise in 2019

A new smartphone comes with a hefty price tag nowadays and apps are one of the main reasons why we justify spending a large amount on a new device. Our apps truly make our lives so much easier, whether it be organization, mindfulness, or even sleep tracking. We have the heavy hitters like Uber or Instagram, but here are a few up and coming stars that you should consider downloading today.

 

YourParkingSpace

Airbnb was a game changer in the world of hospitality, making travel more convenient and affordable at the same time. YourParkingSpace is doing the same when it comes to your car. This app lets you book a parking space in advance so say goodbye to the panic of driving around town trying to find an available space and the high rates of parking garages. You can also rent out your unused parking space to earn some extra cash without lifting a finger.


“It's a great platform to use when you need to book a space near a concert venue, stadium, museum, or when you go on holiday.” - Gregory Golinski, Head of Digital Marketing, YourParkingSpace.


While currently only available in the U.K., this is the only parking app we were able to find that covers multiple cities, making it the powerhouse in parking apps.
