Like many people have said, the app does not notify you that your time is about to expire. Luckily, I set a timer on my phone and walked back just in time. I waited nearby the meter for the time to expire completely just to test it. There were no notifications about the time expiring or to extend the time. Also, it seems that once time is expired, you can't add more time to the meter.

Helpful but problematic. It only shows green for meters that aren't running. So on a Sunday, 100% of the meters will show as available when, in fact, they are all taken. Also, it wouldn't let me add time to a meter that still had time left on it from the previous vehicle. I had to set an alarm to add time via my phone when the other person's time finally ran out. I wanted to just pay to top off the 2 hours when I arrived. I did enjoy being able to pay by phone and check the remaining time.

Text notifications are broken and caused me to get a ticket when I realized only too late that the app didn't send me the 10 minute notice I had it configured for. I enabled the 15 minute notice as well and that didn't send either, not surprisingly. I caught it at 2 minutes to go and avoided another ticket. I've enabled email notifications now, we'll see if those work. Selecting feedback in the app doesn't work either. Unreliable, better off taking quarters. 10/8/21 - Notifications (pop up and email) are still broken, just got an "about to expire" notice a full 10 minutes after it had already expired.
