What's New in Version 1.0.3
Small bug fixes and improvements
HUGE privacy risk!
To PAY TO PARK at Reston Town Center, you now have the privilege of downloading and app that needs access to the following: Identity, Location, Phone, Photos/Media/Files, Camera, Bluetooth Connection info., and Device ID & call information.
So in addition to being given an efficient way to fork over $ to PARK at Reston Town Center, one would also give them the ability to data mine the living *&%# out of your private data AND track your location as needed.
Sure...I would trust ParkRTC/Passport with this information! Reston Town Center is nothing special, all of the retail locations can be visited in many places in Fairfax or Loudon county that DO NOT charge for parking. I guess the people who run Reston Town Center think they are somehow...unique...and feel justified to charge to park there?
Minimum stay is 1 hour?!
OK, so I'm a flexible person and considern myself very reasonable. I don't mind paying for parking, I don't mind using the app, I don't mind many things, but I am extrememly irritated when I need to part for 15 minutes to buy from food for lunch and end up having no option but to be at least $2.00 for a 1 hour parking session. Oh, and if you change zones within the parking session you have to pay again.
Look, I'm used to meter parking, but they usually allow for 15 minute increments. This app is a total rip off! I'm going to do my best to not visit the Reston Town Center now, and I'm sure I'm one of many people who feel the same way. Good job guys. Two thumbs down.
You're kidding, right?
I get it. Transitioning from free to pay parking is a big step, and obviously a shock for those patrons that have been parking free at this location for over a decade. But this app just throws gas on the fire. To whomever was responsible for this abomination: if you're going to upend people's routines and expectations with paid parking, at least put in the time and investment in creating a user experience that isn't laughably amateurish, if not downright hostile. Seriously. Someone should get fired for thinking this onboarding experience (from the blurred-out location services permissions sheet to the 7 pt TOS link) is remotely acceptable for any viable app, let alone an app requiring such dramatic changes to user behavior.
