The Hassle of booking tickets for parking cars in parking zones got me thinking and i came up with a simplified solution to do the same with as little effort as possible.
I have taken Dubai (7275) as the first city for this app, plans are to exted this aopp every other country where such a service of mParking is offered (for which i need your help).

Basically how the app works is it takes out the Manual pain of typing a SMS every time you want to book a ticket and Automates the same.
The App uses the SMS Service of your country or city (for now only 7275 in Dubai) and takes your values generated in app as sents it to the mParking Service and the ticket is booked.

Example::

In my case the app sends (i.e For Dubai mParking Service by RTA)

Car Plate Num (space) Parking Zone (space) Time to 7275

Here is a Video Demo::

You've done a really nice job on this app. I'm located in the U.S. and don't have the paid parking system. I test apps on the HTC Droid DNA (sense 4+ and sense 5) and HTC Rezound.

If you need help testing something on the device or pulling some logs not depending on the paid parking system, send me a PM and I will be glad to help out.

Great response.

I dont own a table but is there a way you can test this on a 7inch or 10inch tablet

And it will be great if you could test the app on ur existing phone and put up screenshots and post ur findings on this thread
