Cities use this to extort money from its constituents. It rigs the system to give you a ticket right as your meter expires. Even as you're trying start the new session, down to the second, multiple times the app freezes, as in the back button and home button don't work and the only thing you can do is force shut off of your phone. The city says, the meter has a time limit on it so your ticket is valid yet you paid the full time. Funny how the only tickets I've ever gotten have been within 1 min.

Garbage app - you can't see a map of the parking zones like other apps offer, and just parking a car requires more steps than other parking apps. Also the app is constantly accessing your phone's GPS in the background, even when you're not using it. Worst of all, you are forced to pick the duration of your park - you can't start a timer and then end it when you're finished (like you can with other apps such as Parkmobile).

The space number on the meter didn't work when input into the app. The meter had two different numbers from the back and the front, luckily one of them ended up working. We could have gone to a different spot but we were parking at an EV charger. App doesn't notify your session ended or tell you if it's over. I thought it was still charging me so I almost opened a new session. The app is ugly and could have better interface and design. Curly font overlaying other text is awful looking.
