MobiAPPark is a personal parking meter for download onto your mobile device. The app is free and once installed it allows you to pay for and extend your parking time in Palma's blue zone. You can even use the app to settle parking penalties from a mobile phone (see instructions below). You can easily charge time without coins or local currency. Whether you are sitting at a café or continuing to shop when your ticket expires, easy recharge options keep you from panicking to put coins in the meter.
All you need is a valid email address and a mobile device. You can select your desired language. At present, it's available in Spanish, Catalan and English.
For registration, you type in your name, email address, the car registration number and your password. When typing in your credit card details, note you will be charged 5 cents to confirm the transaction.
Whether you visit Palma regularly or infrequently, just keep your credit card details current and you’ll have no problem with intermittent use.
