This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
ParkMate is the smartest and easiest way for you to pay for your parking. Using your phone's GPS and Google Maps, ParkMate allows you to easily find a car park or select the car park you are in. Then you simply hit 'START YOUR PARKING' to commence and 'STOP YOUR PARKING' when you are done. It really is that simple!
With ParkMate, you no longer need to queue in the rain to pay for your parking. You no longer need to carry a huge sack of coins around with you. You no longer need to keep putting your credit card into a pay & display machine. Best of all, you no longer need to guess how long you may need to park. You control your parking from your smartphone!
Once you have easily registered your ParkMate account, ParkMate provides you with the best parking rate available including the Earlybird rate (if available). ParkMate also allows you to select how often you would like reminders that your parking session is active or when you would like to be reminded that your Earlybird parking is ending (if you want to extend your stay, you can without needing to return to your car!). For 'peace-of-mind' ParkMate displays a timer on your phone, so you can always see your parking session is active and how long you have parked for.
ParkMate - simply is the coolest way of paying for your parking on the planet.

In the previous update the introduction promotional codes to the app was released to enhance the offerings that operators can give to users.
New features are scheduled for release later in 2017, so please watch this space!
Excellent app, fines a bit outrageous
This is a very handy app for paying for parking. Much easier than other systems I've tried for paying parking online (Frogparking for example).
In the latest update they even fixed the only bug I was aware of (address showed as Wellington instead of Palmerston North)
One caveat though, the fines (in Palmy anyway) for forgetting to pay are a bit over the top, $65 charge for forgetting to pay $4.50 is silly. That's more the fault of those setting charges than the app itself.
Good app, needs parking rate.
Good app, agree they need to fix issue with start parking button being off bottom of screen. Move to top?
Bigger issue is start parking screen and ongoing parking screens do not show hourly rates or cost so far. That can't be legal?
Remember to Scroll down!!
Really disappointed with the update on this app - would help if all fitted on screen without scrolling down!
I didn't notice that you need to scroll down to confirm your parking once you click start my parking- so of course it didn't start and 8 mins later a $65 ticket!
Shame as the few times I used the old app it was great.
