Worked once maybe 2 twice.
Had to delete it. It only worked once. It's a shame because it has great potential and I would rather pay the app direct then have my credit card scanned at one of those meters. It's a shame. Because in NYC it's more expensive to park and to be able to use this app while not having to exit the car and find the meter would've been great. The issue was I would input my zone and time and click send. Then nothing would happen. I would go and check email to see if they emailed me the confirmation and they wouldnt I would waste time thinking it's wifi sitting in my car and people would come by thinking I'm leaving my spot. No I was just waiting to see if it went through. Also the other issue is it only alerts you by email when you're close to your end of time and who checks their email when they're out shopping. A text should be given or an alert that's audible on the phone would be better. Fix the app and maybe I will redownload but otherwise I want my refund of 25 dollars.
Lot of potential
The app needs a lot of bug fixing. It used to work like a charm especially because parking in Manhattan is ridiculously difficult. It continues to glitch regularly. As of right now, I have to delete and reinstall after every single use. I can't tell if its a way for the city to just be able to push more parking tickets or because of "covid" they aren't able to get to updating the app. Regardless, it is a little embarrassing that the most prestigious city in the world doesn't have a fully functional mobile/app for parking meters.
I've asked traffic officers if they know whats going and they suggest calling and paying via phone.... yes, they said "pay via phone" and just continued to move on. The app doesn't work, the actual meter zones are not always dependable so now we must spend literally 10 minutes to call and pay the muni-meter cia cellphone.
Fixing the app would be beneficial for the general public but I guess who cares about the general public when you can make $65 for every vehicle parked without paying the meter. Thanks DeBlasio, you are the man (sarcastically). But in all seriousness thank you for the Alternate Side Parking reform, looks like maybe you're not all bad.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for your feedback! In addition to ParkNYC, you can use the ParkMobile app which lets you pay directly using a CC. Along with the NYCDOT, we’re encouraging users to use contactless payment methods.
Super Convenient!! (with minor flaws)
Download this bad boy right now. I’ve been using this app for 2 years and I love being able to just get out of the car and not have to finangle with the machines to pay. The app is super convenient and quick. I totally get the frustration of the other reviewers, but I feel like most people who use this app love it, but as with most things, people who have problems with it are the most vocal.
Being unable to extend past the max time is annoying, but the app never claims to allow that. When I know I’m staying longer than the max time, I just pay at the machines first, and then when that time is up, I pay via the app so I don’t have to leave wherever I am. Works smoothly.
Onlyyy problem I’ve consistently had is that when the app feels like it, it won’t let you pay for the time. You’ll have to delete the app and re-download. It’s really frustrating, hopefully it gets fixed soon! Otherwise, it’s a great app and don’t listen to the negative reviews, make your own judgement. :)
