What's New in Version 2.1
Updated look and feel
Minor Bug Fixes
Enhanced account management
Easier duration selection
Used to be a user friendly single-use app but as others have stated in reviews, the recent update ruined the app. As a user experience designer, I can't fathom the business rules or product strategy that dictated this update. Everything about it makes the experience of using the app much more clunky and convoluted than the previous version. I feel like the update was designed by engineers and never tested with users. If the app's creators had only done benchmark user testing and then tested the updated prototypes, they would've immediately uncovered the terrible user experience of the update. I wish I could roll back to the old version.
(Sarcasm)Great Software And UI/UX Design
TOS displays now, so... progress.
They want me to put my money into a "wallet"? I already have one of those. No, I'm not buying a new wallet from a parking company.
"Hey cool- new design".
Starts up- Taps Login- Pop-up appears: "You must accept the terms and conditions before using this application". They allow two options, Decline/Accept.
Fair enough- Decline. What ARE these terms and conditions?
Taps Terms and Conditions.
Blank page appears.
"Password is not accepted by the current password policy. Please use another one. " What does that mean? Alphanumeric, digits, decimals, Strings... all lazy programming. I really hope these programmers didn't go to school, as they would shame their school. Programmers for some reason don't like putting in the work required for users to utilize secure passwords- and that's really frustrating. Another useless app I don't need- not telling me how my password doesn't meet their mysterious (read :bad) requirements.
Awful update both design and biz model
The old version had some quirks but it was speedy (essentially one screen to park) and had a single transaction business model (pay per park).
New version has a terrible visual update (fonts are misshapen and controls feel like a bad responsive web page); it now takes multiple taps and screens to complete the transaction (before it was 2 now it is 5); and you now have to recharge a wallet to store a min of $10 vs paying for a single parking transaction. This means unless you spend $10 in parking immediately you end up with a balance sitting out there but down $10.
