Had to use this method after realising I left my purse at home. Text husband for the card number and security number and was able to ‘pay’ via phone. I have been using it ever since as I never have the right change, never had an issue with it. Another reason why it’s a godsend is that while chatting with friends I lost track of time and was able to whip out my phone and ‘buy’ another hour just in the nick of time - it would be impossible to do so while running to the car park and insert money. Worthwhile app and a breeze to use. Hey, if this techno illiterate can operate it, anyone can too!

Update Deregistered Me


I use this app on a fairly regular basis. Went to use today on a hospital visit but it had logged me out. It wouldn’t send me a new PIN via text so I reregistered. I thought it would tell me I was already registered but, no, it did reregister my same phone. Then I saw there was an update to the app the very same day. All this took time I didn’t have and ended up paying at a machine in the car park. It also means I’ve lost all my parking history and the numbers of car parks I’d previously visited so I’ll have to get all those again next time I visit. So annoying.
In addition, the app seems to lose a feature or two every time it’s updated. I used to know how long I had left to park but now it doesn’t tell me. What’s the use in that?? Please sort it all out.

Great app but needs some updates


This app is great I no longer need to pre prepare with paycards etc. There is some stuff that could make it better though... Throughout December whenever I went to use the app it came up with an annoyong message that my card was about to expire, by that tome I had already updated it but you can’t seem to delete cards that are no longer valid. Thank god by January the card had actually expired so it’s stopped alerting me...
Half hour parking would be awesome, not sure if that’s down to this app or the parking dept in my area but it would be sooo useful.
Good app, no issues, very useful:)
