Minor bug fixes and enhancements
Ratings and Reviews
I LOVE this app
The old school way of carrying around quarters, praying you had enough change if you forgot to bring some, taking forever to drop them into the meter and having to rush out to add more time if you get caught up is over. I seriously love this app because where we live that’s pretty much all there is in the town square. You can do some amazing things with this app! Reserve spaces, add exact time rather than wasting change on time you won’t use, user friendly with a timer to let you know when you should add more time if you are about to run out, you can easily add as much time as you need with the push of the screen, it gives you electronic receipts in your email so you can use them to deduct at taxes if you have a business where you have to park in high traffic areas, you can actually walk away from the meter if you are running late and put time on it independent from the meter as long as you have the corresponding number, and the best part is it can find you open meters to park at! I seriously don’t know why anyone would still stick to the antiquated ways of carrying around plastic baggies of money for meters. Download the app you won’t regret it ☺️
Good at the basics, two annoying issues
ParkMobile seems to be the most popular app for municipal parking around me, and it works pretty well for what it is. Seems to sync well with whatever technology the authorities are using. A handful of app-specific annoyances in the last year or two: 1) there are more often than not popover ads or popover promos that appear as soon as I open the app that I must dismiss in order to input the parking zone and start parking. I imagine most people are like me and in a major hurry to input the zone number and start the clock. The ads and promos are a HUGE annoyance. I’ve cursed the app more than once standing in the rain after finding the zone number and trying to start parking. 2) I turned off app notifications for time remaining and session expired and now they will not turn back on for me. Every time I hit the radio button in the app, I’m redirected to the iPhone setting menu for the app, which doesn’t help - two different types of settings. All of those iPhone settings are correct, so I don’t know what the problem is turning notifications on in the app. I really don’t like text or email notifications, which are now my only options. 3) I had to log out and log back in to the app to see an updated parking history. The app stopped showing parking history in real time for a couple months.

Terribly unreliable - caused me a parking ticket l
I don’t even have time to list all the things all the things that went wrong with this terrible functioning, unreliable app. I parked my car and walked off, opening to app to pay for my parking. The app then bugged out and had issue after issue. First, it would randomly sign me out and and wouldn’t let me sign back in, telling me my info was incorrect, or simply loading forever. Once it finally started realizing my info WAS correct, I tried to click on a zone and it wouldn’t load it. Then, when it finally did load it, it kept telling me I didn’t have a payment method on file, despite having used it before. When I went to add a payment method, it showed that I did indeed still have a payment method on file. I continuously opened and closed the app, again and again trying to get it to simply function properly, and every time it was a different issue, different bug. Eventually I became so frustrated with it that I went and grabbed my wallet, walked all the way back down to the parking space to pay manually, and upon arrival realized that I had received a parking ticket in the time that I spent trying to simply get to app to function.
The app fails at the simplest levels, and is just terrible and unreliable in general. An app like this is supposed to be reliable - that’s the whole idea. Don’t waste your time on this.
