As with most social applications, it takes people to make them work effectively.  The same goes for the new parking spot finder for your iPhone called iSpotSwap.  The free app lets you create and interact with a database of parking spots that you deem most valuable.

The basic jist is that you mark spots that your parked in, and when they will become available in hopes that others do the same for you.  You can also mark where you’ve parked your car so you don’t lose track of it.  The app assumes that everyone has iPhones (soon to be on BlackBerry and Android as well) so I’m not sure if this type of activity will be worth the hassle.

A great idea for sure, but it would be much better as an automated app that didn’t require the user to do all the legwork.  Available now in the App Store.
