A new iPhone application helps find affordable parking in downtown Chicago.

"Chicago Parking" was created by a college student from Plainfield. It gives users hourly, daily and monthly rates for more than 300 parking garages in Chicago. It also shows the location of parking pay boxes.

The Chicago Parking app will alert drivers when their metered parking is about to expire.

The new app can be downloaded for $2. You can read more about it and the suburban college student who created it in The Daily Herald.
