Is the app still being supported?
I only give a 3 because it has work great in the past. But I have tried using it in the last 3 months and my issues are never touched. Last 3 months score would be 0
Parking authority is a BUST with this app
This app has good potential but it’s JERSEY CITY. When you submit an issue for a clear parking violation you get unqualified and uninformed person for parking offenses. The parking authority person doesn’t know how to properly do their job. They are lazy and inexperienced. For an example, a persons car is clearing blocking the sidewalk :Offense is 39:4-139f. When the parking authority lady arrives she begins to laugh and then that person mock the person submitting the request to the neighborhood by showing the photo to everyone and saying “you got a rat on this block!” Now, she then states that the truck isn’t in violation when in clear daylight this truck is completely blocking the sidewalk and people have to walk into the street to get around. Now, after her mocking and failure to issue she gets in her little scooter and rides away into the sunset. Meanwhile, parents with strollers are forced to go into the street to get around. Once you took away the police from giving tickets and gave it to this department the quality and knowledge of enforcement quickly went downhill. Good luck with the app but you’re in Jersey City, quality of treatment will never change.
Live in a quiet area along Westside, however Friday and Saturday nights on the corners it’s like a completely different place. Groups of wanna be thugs drink, smoke, yell and blast music from 9pm till the wee hours of 3am. I’ve used this app and authority ever shows up. Useless app, I put in a complaint and no one responded, lol 58 hours later still waiting it’ll be next Friday soon and the complaint will still be open.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
