Ratings and Reviews
Perfect during bad weather
This is Minneapolis. It snows. It rains. It gets very cold. Who wants to walk down to the street-side payment machine (if you can find it) and stand in the rain or snow or cold while navigating a menu with your gloves on? Or, worse yet, wait until the person in front of you at the payment machine figures out how to use it? This easy-to-use app lets me just pull into a parking space, stay in my warm & dry car, bring up the app, enter the space number and length of time I want to park there, and start it. What could be easier? And if I run over the scheduled time period, it texts me a warning and I can extend the period right from the app - wherever I am. No need to go back to the car. If I forgot where I parked, it even shows me on a map! If a 25 cent transaction fee scares you away, don’t bother with the app. But it’s a trivial charge to save time and stay warm and dry for me.
Works when meter machines do not
I can’t think of a reason to use this app other than staying out of pouring rain or being confronted with a parking meter pay box that refuses to work.
I arrived 30 minutes early for my clinic appointment, parked in a metered spot, and found that the pay box did not work. I watched two other customers have the same problem I did. Remembering that I could pay at any box, I tried again around the block. And again at a third, fourth, and fifth pay box. All failed in exactly the same way.
I called 311, as suggested on the outside of the box. On hold with 8 people ahead of me. I gave my report, including the pay box number, and was told I could download this app to pay. By this time, I was late for my appointment, and had to walk a couple of blocks back to my car before I could continue registration. Having done so, I got to experience the joy of paying extra to feed a meter that refused both my credit card and my coins.
Developer Response ,
I am sorry to hear that you had a bad parking experience. We do not own, operate, or manage any of the parking locations so all issues involving a broken meter should be directed to the local parking authority. If you have any questions or concerns as it pertains to the mobile app, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to help.
I love this app. It works perfectly. I had to laugh at the reviewer who gave it one star because he couldn't remember his own password. I would give the reviewer one star, but I wouldn't blame the app. Then there was the reviewer who complained because there is a $0.25 charge per transaction. If it's too expensive, don't use it, but that doesn't make it a bad app. This app provides a service you cannot get by paying at the meter. You do not need to return to the meter to add more time. Very nice if you've gone to dinner and underestimated how long it would take. Just add 15 or 30 minutes with a few clicks while seated at dinner. Tell me that isn't worth $0.25.
