New app hopes to make paying for parking easier on Palm Beach

PALM BEACH, Fla. - There's a new, easier way to pay for parking on Palm Beach --  no coins or cards needed.

Drivers can now use the Parkmobile app . It's the same app being used for metered spots in West Palm Beach.

Instructions are posted on signs near metered spots. All someone has to do is download the app, type in the parking zone listed on the signs, then give a space number and the amount of time needed.

The parking fee will automatically be charged to the card listed on the account.

The app gives a 15-minute warning before the time on a spot is up, and users can remotely extend the amount of time on the meter from their phones.
