Ratings and Reviews
If you don’t have this, you’re over complicating your life
This app is the best. It saves all your vehicle and payment information, so you can pay for parking before you even leave your vehicle. So easy to use!
Picture this: you go to a restaurant, park 8 blocks away, and pay for an hour of parking, but while you’re in the restaurant you see your dearest of friends you haven’t seen in a year, and you’re neck deep in catch up sauce when you realize parking is going to expire. This app will notify you that parking is about to expire, and will let you add time from wherever you are. No more sentimental experiences being interrupted by pesky parking restrictions at an inconvenient distance.
Also, if a parking area is only metered until a specific time, the app will not allow you to overpay for those free minutes.
Additionally, if you desperately need four hours of parking in a two hour parking spot, you can start with a printed ticket at the stand, make note of the parking indicator, and two hours later initiate two more hours of your parking with the app. Not sure if this is regulated somehow, so use this tip at your own risk.
Cons: if people know you have the app, you’ll just have to be honest about why you’re leaving your friends. You can no longer use parking meters as an excuse to leave a conversation just so you can go Netflix and chill or play with your wii

Picture this: your review, printed and framed, hanging in our office. Grateful the app is helping you spend time on the things that matter! Thank you, Xience!
Works poorly with congested bandwidth
The commuter rail station I park at is in a small town an hour outside Boston. Cell service is fine except for when it hits high saturation levels as is the case in the 10-15 minutes prior to an inbound train arriving. That’s when this app doesn’t work at all. It seems like it always has to talk to a server for every step of the transaction: pick location, pick vehicle, retrieve parking rates, make financial transaction.
However, my banking apps, train ticket app, other apps still work in the same situation, although slower, but still work! I have to wait to do my parking transaction until the next train stop which is at a bigger city center and had more cell service capacity. Seems like work needs to be done on the app to make it more efficient on the backend.
If I mark a location as a favourite (spelling intentional) then why isn’t the favorites tab presented to me first? And when I pick a favorite location why does the app have to go verify the location exists? Maybe you need to work on your analytics and caching.
Exactly what an app should be
I love this app. It’s the greatest type of app because of its simplicity and time savings. The first time I used it, setting up my account (entering car license plate and cc number) took less time than if I had walked to the pay station. The second time I used it, it took me approximately 10 seconds to open the app, enter the location number, select my time needed, and hit pay. Plus, it’s saving me money because I don’t have to do the max time “just in case.” If I need more time, I just add it. And I get reminders right beforehand. I wish more apps were as simple and intuitive as this. It actually DOES save me time. And the interface design is really nice. I really like the clean white and green color scheme. Congrats to Seattle for choosing the perfect app.
