I got a fine Today I used the app to park as well, but the park is automatically finished after one hour since I parked without notice, and I found it stopped after one hour just by chance, and when I realized it it is already 30 mins later. as a result I got a 60euro fine of course. I parked the car at the same place for a lot of times, and I always stoped the park by myself. and I paid as long as I park my car there. If anyone wanna use the app to pay the park , please check your phone frequently!
If you can, use cash, but app is great when you have none. If charging period is 08:00 till 18:00 and you arrive at 07:00 don't start app till 08:00 or you will get charged for the free parking period. There is a small service charge like 0.30. Also there is charge for SMS reminders, confirmations of park start and stop. You can disable SMS in account settings and opt for free e-mail reminders confirmations etc. Gmail it seems to get messages quicker than other mail services. Getting an invoice is good if you can claim parking from your employer or tax office. Always check for start confirmation as some areas with weak signal will catch you out and you will get a ticket or clamped.
So far so good Reading other reviews there may be an issue with free periods being charged (if I was in that situation I would follow the advice to delay starting the parking, set an alarm to remind you!). However other than that this app is great, I pulled into the car park last night, opened the app, set the end time knowing I could easily extend if needed and enjoyed my night worry free with the countdown timer ticking away in my notifications.
Good parking app It would be a wise addition to have a better reminder system or enable all day parking in the Birmingham area rather than 4 hours at a time. This is how you get away with slapping tickets on peoples car because they are at work and potentially forget about the parking. This needs looking into asap.
Good service and easy to use Good service and ease of use. Some parking meters have multiple meters so bit confusing plus some zone numbers do not show up in map next to car location. Small niggles but love the freedom this app provides!
Transaction Want to explain why £1 has been taken from my card even though I've not yet used the app to park? I literally downloaded it yesterday in order to ise, yet there's already a transaction appearing on my bank acc?!
Update - Some users experienced a crash, we have found the bug and crushed it.
