About this app

SMS Parking is an app that allows you to pay public parking easily with features like detecting your location and sending the appropriate short text message (SMS) to the corresponding service number.

Create a profile for each one of your cars and send parking messages with a single tap. Additionally, you can schedule sending a SMS at a specified time (up to 24h ahead).*

Available parking zones are suggested automatically, based on your location. Parking position is detected and displayed on the map in the application along with the nearby parking zone bounds.†

Support for More than 200 cities in over 15 countries across Europe and counting. Automatic parking service message recognition and zones with sessions (Start/Stop) are supported in selected cities.‡

Select from which SIM card to send messages on dual SIM devices. The app will remember your preference for each one of your cars.

Overall is a very good application, but has one major flaw - it does not update zones automatically. Instead you need to check manually and updated them manually which is ridiculous. This year I have been already fined twice due to changes in the zones from green to blue in Sofia.

Thank you for your feedback. Version 5.3 of the app should check for updates upon startup automatically. If you still observe that the latest information was not downloaded or is not correct, please try to "repair the parking zones" from the settings. This will remove any stale or incomplete downloads, which might prevent the automatic updates.

Difficult to set up: instead of managing permissions during installation, the app randomly asks permissions when pressing functional buttons and flashes short messages (no time to react) when trying to use first time. In a situation with location turned off, the app instead of showing the list of zones continues to start with country map instead where you are maybe supposed to search you exact location next 15 minutes - apart from this resulting in slow operation and large mobile data traffic.

Somethig weird happens recently. I send an SMS for green zone in Sofia and then I get notification that I payed for 3h instead of 1h. Update: I did a a small investigation. It turned out to be my mistake. This happens when you send SMS before the working hour of the zone. The application works fine and obviously knows the zones better than me :) It might be a good improvement to notify the user in such cases.
