This might be the slowest app I've ever used. I don't know if the hamster powering the servers keeps falling asleep, but every action takes so long to complete the app frequently stops. Even buttons and inputs can be over ten seconds to respond to user input. It's a real mess. It took me over ten minutes to add a new vehicle, set up a card, and pay for parking, all because the app was so incredibly slow. It really needs sorting out.

Since the changes, it can take as long as 5 minutes to pay for parking when before it took 30 seconds. The request for email password, one time passkey etc are realy irritating. Specially that I don't recall ever having given a password, and using the " forgotten password" facility is not there. The only other option is to sign in with Facebook which I am very reluctant to do. Please return to the previous format.

The app is generally fine, but the map only comes up 10% of the time? It uses to show automatically but it doesn't anymore. Super frustrating because half the time in my city, the numbers on the meter are scratched off so I can't read them. A functional map would be really helpful.
