It's Free? What a deal!
I can't figure out how they make money, since the app, which is very useful doesn't cost anything. While they want a credit card when creating the account they don't actually charge it until you go to a station that costs money. We've been using free stations, getting free charges since we downloaded the app. Very intuitive, and I appreciate the ability to know in advance if a spot is open (or occupied), which can save a trip and mitigate frustration.
One reviewer said it doesn't work with mobile data, but I didn't have to enable cellular (it was enabled automatically). If it only works on wifi on your phone, check to ensure cellular is enabled for the app and it will work.
Being able to monitor the charge over the network is very helpful.
Nice and Effective App. Features can be added to make it convenient..
