Great once you figure out how to use it!

So much better than using quarters in a meter and not having any change.
Once you download the app and figure it out it’s good. My husband went to visit his mom an hour and a half from our home and called me to tell me what zone he was parked in (I have the app on my phone) I entered it and he was good to go. Mom was happy too! 😊

Fine app, but Evanston hates parking

Would I be transgressing the license if I said the app works fine, but Evanston now has better tools to continue their ridiculous parking regime? I’m concerned about the non-disparagement clause in the license because I’m trying to disparage the Evanston parking enforcement, not the app itself (even though the app license terms are ridiculous in themselves... but ridiculous in a way that most licenses are these days. If I never see the phrase “in our sole discretion “ again it will be too soon)

To be clear, the excerpt from the license below is not intended to disparage “company” but to inquire about whether disparaging a client of Company is considered disparaging Company.

From the license: You agree not to download, display or use any Content in any other manner that is likely to cause confusion among consumers, that disparages or discredits Company and/or its licensors, that dilutes the strength of Company or its licensors’ property, or that otherwise infringes Company or its licensors’ intellectual property rights.

Simply the Worst

This application and the accompanying sidewalk signage are the worst. The ap loads really slow and has too many steps to complete to pay for parking. So many steps, that half the time, I don’t complete the transaction. Not out of mischief but because the ap isn’t user-friendly. Plus, why isn’t there a feature that allows you to end the parking session? Say I pay for an hour but finish my errand in half the time. Why can’t I get a credit? With only one or two signs per block, “meter” numbers are way too small to be legible. Give me a handful of coins and an old fashioned meter to plug anytime.
