Bad app

Of course I hate all parking apps because they presume that we have time to faff about forever just to spend money on something we want don’t want to do. I can’t see why this app needs to have my CV number from the back of my card when Other apps seem to be able to do it without. and it’s just another hassle if I happened to have left my wallet inside the building. Whilst appreciate a lot of work has gone on creating this app and it’s a bit of a nuisance. For example You can’t name of vehicles you only have a list of registration numbers and if you have to park a lot of colleagues cars you can’t remember what car is which. One other app only charges you for the time you’re actually at the parking spot so if you leave early save money. This is a much better idea

Much improved and reliable.

In the past the app has been quite glitchy but it’s much more reliable, easier to read, and offers more features now. Adding and removing cars is easy, if renting cars for example.
It asks you to select the car each time if you’ve more than one - it used to default to the last car selected, which caught me out a few times, when switching cars, causing me to pay for the wrong car.
My only suggestions would be to improve the search function, including search by postcode or road, and being able to see meters and availability in another area, to aid route planning. At present the map only shows meters nearby and how busy they are. I can see that by looking around me!
And if possible to take American Express or Paypal as an alternative to Visa or Mastercard, but that’s not down to the app.

Developer Response ,

Hi there, thank you very much for taking the time to re-review the RingGo app, it is very much appreciated as it helps us to improve the app. The search facility will allow search via postcode (as well as name, code and location). The maps screen will default to showing nearby zones and availability, but if you use the search facility at the top of the screen, you'll be able to update the results to show the zones and availability for the criteria you have searched for. Lastly, as you've pointed out, if not down to the app, but unfortunately we can only process payments like AMEX if the council or car park owner's bank accepts them.
Thank you very much for taking the time to share your experience, we are extremely grateful.

Slightly obsessed with this app now!

I love this app and it’s kind of a joke now with my wife that I’ll get excited when looking for parking! When I’m an unfamiliar area you can load the map, find a carpark and it will navigate you there. Then a couple of buttons later you’ve got your ticket booked. It debuts your card, sends email and SMS confirmation and will even message you when you parking is about to run out (you can then top it up without having to return to car). No more fumbling around looking for change, waiting in a queue to get ticket, worrying about getting back to the car on time... what’s not to like? I have 2 cars and can add both then select which one I’m using. I can’t think of any negatives to using this app. Great job guys
