New on the app store is Car Finder, a clever app that leads back to your parked car using augmented reality.
The app uses the iPhone’s camera to overlay the direction of your car and how far away it is. The app relies on the camera and a digital compass, and is compatible only with the iPhone 3GS running 3.1 or later.
