The app for the National Zoo has very mixed reviews, so I think we'll skip it.

The app for the National Mall won't download onto my phone. Could be a memory issue, I suppose.

But the best app I've found for our trip is Parking Panda. We don't leave for 10 more days (I'm up and dressed so today no longer counts) and I've already booked our parking spaces in DC.

According to the video, you book and pay online, then get a QR code on your phone which scans at the parking space. We've printed out our codes, just to be sure. Then, when it's time to leave, scan the code again. Presumably this logs your 'once in once out', as well as making sure you haven't overstayed your bought and paid for welcome.

The other app that I hope will see some use is geocaching. Middle daughter would love to find a cache in every state, which would be great fun but perhaps a bit unlikely. Some we're just passing through, and as I no longer have a premium membership I can't do a saved 'caching along a route' search. There're a couple of virtual caches at Mount Vernon that we'll try to snag, and some good traditionals on Chincoteague. And when we stop at rest areas, I can certainly run a 'nearby caches' search. Some states allow them, some don't.

Wonder if there's a 'find nearby coffee shops' app.
