Default [APP][4.0+] Dude, Where's My Car?

Hi guys, I'm very new to development and wanted to share my first app with the hope of receiving some constructive criticism or ideas for possible features that you would like to see me add. The app is called Dude, Where's My Car? and is a simple, clean car finder app that allows the user to set their current position and later retrieve it for the purpose of remembering where you parked your car.

Download link to Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...an.wheresmycar

Features:
-Easy to use Park and Find implementation
-Clean interface
-Ability to set a note - Great way to remember what level you're on in a parking garage.
-Navigation to car
-Utilizes Google Maps positioning to ensure accurate location

The app is completely free to download with no ads and I would appreciate it if you guys would give it a try! Thanks

Looks good, nice layout, fast and without unnecessary permissions.
I like it a lot!
One minor thing...I find the app icon a little boring and small...but that's just my personal opinion

Edit: There's another app that's called the same?!? Same developer or copied?

Vaetheran, thank you for your kind words about my app. When I originally posted it on the play store I didn't realize that there were other apps with the same name but I now have found at least five other apps with the same name from different developers. I would change it but I can't think of any easy to find name that accurately describes the function of the application. Names like "Car Finder", "Find My Car", etc. have been taken by multiple other apps and so I've had some difficulty trying to come up with an original one.

Ok that's not a problem for me. Just thought it should be mentioned.

Very nice. This is the cleanest car finder in the store. Would be nice if you could add a timestamp/alert option for when you're parked at a parking meter.
