Functional, but.... Please change to show a 24 hour clock. Made a mistake recently and booked from 8pm not 8am without realising. So got a £60 fine. Much less risk of error with 24 hr clock. Also, the slider for choosing parking duration is very fiddly, it usually takes several goes to get it where I want.
Better but not great This version certainly looks better than the last one which was aesthetically significantly worse than the one before. However, I'm now getting a RingGo logo appearing and disappearing in my notification bar. It's driving me mad! I also park in a number of locations in any given day so never need the immediate last location. This app used to open on the previous sessions screen straight away which was much more useful. I'm also glad they finally sorted out the freezing and email receipts issues.
Works well for my needs Does what it says . Just a shame it removes the feel good rebellion of passing on your paper ticket to someone else when you have been stung for an hours parking when you only needed 10 minutes
Constant updates annoying Seems to update constantly throughout the day, even though I haven't opened it at all since the last phone restart. Logo flickers in the notification bar at these times which is annoying. I'm currently not in the UK and it has used 0.5mb of data (which isn't cheap when roaming!) while my banking app, which I've activity used has only used 125kb.
The app is updating the locations database several times a day. This is unnecessary. It's fine to update when I open the app to pay for parking like you used to. Edit after reply: Perhaps I wasn't clear. I'm not using the app daily - in fact I use the app one a week or so when I head into town. But I get a notification every few hours from Ringo saying it's updating location information. I'm not using the app and haven't done for a few days but it's constantly updating it's locations. It's getting annoying and it's impacting my battery (it's shown as using 1-2% of my battery every day - for an app that I'm not using, that's way too much!)
Great I love this app. So much easier than trying to find enough change! It would be useful if the app notified you when your parking is nearly run out. I often Park for a couple of hours then take longer than expected so need to extend the parking but I'm pretty forgetful!
