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.

Requires signup. All I wanted was a web page where I could enter in my license, the slot, and my credit card. or better yet just use Apple pay or Google pay integration Account sign up doesn't work. Password must have one capital letter. one number one special character in be at least 8 characters long, which is like logging into fort Knox, it's a parking app!! I wish the city of San Diego had not chosen the spender, what a waste of time for everyone, and a horrible citizen experience.

Latest version of this app went from bad to worse. I wish I didn't have to use it. Frustrating interface (especially changing vehicles) and now the drop down menu showing nearby lots/spaces seems to have disappeared in favor of green dots on a map. Other parking apps seem so much easier/better--why can't this one be too?
