Useful if it worked more than 20% of the time

The current 4.7 rating is a complete lie. Look at the reviews. Do the math if you like. Scores of 1 star reviews render a 4.7? FRAUD FRAUD FRAUD!

This is the kind of app that often is used in “time-crunch” situations. This app is reluctant to open. Sometimes it opens but remains frozen. Sometimes it won’t let you start your parking session even if it’s not frozen. And very often you cannot purchase more time at a given location after your time has run out, which is nonsense because theoretically that means you should now move to another parking zone to legally park. Should be one of the most useful apps on a New York driver’s phone, instead it’s the most frustrating one. TERRIBLE APP! Possibly the worst I ever used.

Why did you change a perfectly good app?

Why, why did you change? Old app was so easy and intuitive and in easy readable font. Payment could be charged to Apple store credit card. New release changed all of the above to make it much worse. It’s not intuitive. Who come up with sick idea to have a map. And once you enter parking Id it’s start telling and suggest parking address at the expense of the field where one has to enter parking if. This field is so small and stuck at the bottom so one need magnifying glsss to see what number you typed in. Now, I run out of funds and system wants me to type credit card info. it’s inconvenient to enter card info into the phone - you hold card in one hand, phone in another snd you need a third arm to type. I can not charge to Apple store credit card in automatic fashion the way it used to be. So instead, now I have to go back to the parking station and pay with credit card. You forced me to go back to use the credit card as opposed to NYC parking app. Even ewallet does not give you an option to charge apple store credit card.! Royal screw up! I will keep on using credit card and walk to parking payment and wait for the next release . Hopefully it will undo all these awful changes. Good luck!

Easier than the meter, but the constant mandatory updates are a nuisance

This should be a great app, but is as frustrating as it is helpful. The chief complaint is they are constantly rewriting the app for what look to be inconsequential improvements. But the database or whatever it accesses is unforgiving about letting you continue to use even the recent previous version of the app—and being forced to do a new app download and install exactly when you are trying to park in a hurry is absolutely what you do not want.

If they insist on it being so blessed important to update every single time, let the app send you a notification ahead of time so you can take care of it at your leisure, not when you are trying to park and get where you are going.
