Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- With the busy holiday season nearly here, you'll likely find yourself in busy parking lots.

And when you're rushing around, finding a spot, and then remembering where you parked, can sometimes be a nightmare. Not anymore. There's an app for that.

With just a few clicks, you can solve all of your parking problems with your smartphone, even in a jam packed parking lot.

Park Me Right works in a few ways. First, by using GPS, the Android app saves the location of your car so you can always get back to it.

We put it to the test. Could I find the car as easily as it claims?

Check this out, when you're done shopping or with the big concert, the app shows you a picture of the world around you and then puts an icon near the location of your car.

Follow that icon, and I walked right to it. You can also follow your trail on the map.

It works for hunters, anglers, campers and hikers too - you can head into the great outdoors without ever losing your car in the woods or remote areas again.

And whether your hunting or hunting for great deals, you can easily meet friends and family at the car by sharing where you parked with them on Facebook, twitter, foursquare, or with a text.

If you're headed to a strange city park me right can also help you find available parking lots, simply by hitting "find parking". You can even type the address of where you're headed and it will find the parking lot closes to you.

Now if only park me right could get everyone to "park right".

"Park me right" is available for free in the Google Play Market. There are similar apps for the i-phone, including "Take me to my car" and "I car park."
