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.

$68 parking fee for one hour of parking that should’ve cost $3
I use the park mobile app periodically while visiting my daughter in Northern California. I’m just visit, however we parked briefly to go to lunch, and I started and stopped my parking session as usual. Several hours later, when I was 200 miles away on my drive back home, I received an email letting me know that my parking session would automatically end in 15 minutes. Shocked, I went into the app immediately to see if they were any active parking sessions, and there were not. The parking session also did not appear, and currently does not appear at all in my parking history. The next day today, I was shocked to get a $68 parking receipt for what should have been three dollars worth of parking. I contacted customer service, explained the issues, sent them my Google maps history to show that I was only in the location for about an hour, but the customer service rep said that they don’t collect the fees, I would need to contact the city parking office. The rep did acknowledge that the app was currently not showing parking history, etc., but we’re still unwilling to help. The city parking office, of course, says they don’t have access to any of the app information. I will save a screenshot of my Google maps history and the transcript from the customer service chat, and dispute the charges with my credit card company, but what a massive, unnecessary hassle

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.
