Makes you preload $20 just so you can even see your location's parking information. In my case saw that it was only for 2 hours which wasnt enough time, and I contacted support but they refused to refund. You don't even get the bonus of being able to view the city parking map because the app for that straight up doesn't work. I was scammed, don't make my mistake

TL;DR - Use the pay kiosks rather than this app. They have you "pre-load" with a ridiculously high amount of money using a credit card before spending it. Installed as a backup while partner was waiting for her new phone to sync all the apps. App seemed intuitive for UI and all. When i finally got to point of setting up the account, it asked for credit card info to "pre-load" my account with $20 to use for the first time. He-double-hockeysticks-no. Pre-loading should not be necessary for this. I am OK with preloading my IPass because I receive a physical device, but not for just installing an app. This is such a scam - a way for the city to make money for those that just need to park for short amounts of time. City should be ashamed of this cheap money-grab tactic.

The app itself is great. It's easy to use and the timer is good, as is the reminder notification. The cutoff so you don't pay during free parking times is nice too. However, I got this app so that I could avoid the pay boxes, and my car was towed because the paper saying no parking was, you guessed it, on the pay box, not on the parking sign that I was next to. The papers stopped at the pay box, which was about 30 feet short of the edge of the no parking zone. App cost me a few hundred dollars.
