The Parking Fairy Mobile App


Our co-founder Dylan McKee worked the NETV Digital Catapult and Sunderland Software City after winning their Data Movement Competition to combine open data released by the North East Combined Authority's Open Data Service with Geofence technologies through the use of a proprietary bespoke algorithm to enable users with the mobile app to be alerted magically to the nearest available parking space to them as they enter Newcastle City Centre.
Since launching, the Parking Fairy has received regional and national press coverage, endorsement from the Shadow Minister for the Digital Economy, and been shortlisted for a number of prestigious award.
