Worked once maybe 2 twice.
Had to delete it. It only worked once. It's a shame because it has great potential and I would rather pay the app direct then have my credit card scanned at one of those meters. It's a shame. Because in NYC it's more expensive to park and to be able to use this app while not having to exit the car and find the meter would've been great. The issue was I would input my zone and time and click send. Then nothing would happen. I would go and check email to see if they emailed me the confirmation and they wouldnt I would waste time thinking it's wifi sitting in my car and people would come by thinking I'm leaving my spot. No I was just waiting to see if it went through. Also the other issue is it only alerts you by email when you're close to your end of time and who checks their email when they're out shopping. A text should be given or an alert that's audible on the phone would be better. Fix the app and maybe I will redownload but otherwise I want my refund of 25 dollars.
This is an awesome app. I park in meters all the time and this app is a life saver. Less paper waste and less hassle finding a meter hoping not to get a ticket before you get back to car if meter is far away.
In regards to many people stating they should be allowed to refill past the time limit, the purpose of a meter is to keep spots available so no one car is hogging the spot the entire day. If they allowed someone unlimited time to refill then there would never be free spots and it the. Defeats the purpose of meters
Remember - Meters are used to LIMIT TIME you can hold a spot causing more turn over and more people to be able to park. I wish cops enforced the policy for those paying with quarters or at the machine. Would make parking much easier.
Got a ticket wish I read the reviews
This app is pointless and a scam by the city to give more tickets. After the hour expired it wouldn't allow me to pay for an additional hour. I thought the whole point of this app is so that I don't have to keep going outside to pay the muni meter but if it is a one hour parking area it will not allow you to pay for an additional hour. Stupidest thing I ever heard of don't even waste your time.
In response to the developers response: I understand what your saying but that law isn't really regulated. It's like getting a ticket for jay walking. It's a law but no one actually gives you a ticket for it. People at my job park their car on one hour meter from 9am to 6pm and just keep feeding the meter and no one ever gets a ticket. It's not your fault your just the developer and the app would have actually been really great and convenient. Maybe the hourly limits on meters should be banished or at least increased 🤷♀️
We apologize that you were cited using ParkNYC. NYC DOT regulates how the zones are coded and the maximum allowed times in your area, this includes the 30 minute timer that begins after a session expires or the maximum time is reached. Generally this is to promote turnover in high volume or congested areas.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
