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.

This is an absolute garbage app inconsistent barely works. You think you can just enter the location number. Lol your password it's never saved. Now you have to reset it. That doesn't work and you're stuck spending 20 minutes trying to figure it out and by that time you probably got a ticket. Do yourself a favor Don't walk away from your car thinking you could use this app while you walk to your destination, just pay the meter you'll be less stressed and be a lot more efficient and cheaper.

For a metropolitan area such as Miami, you'd think a simple app like this would work seamlessly. Says can't find parking zones, even when you enter the numbers correctly. Sometimes it just loads forever and ever. Tried restarting the app, even rebooted my phone. Still didn't work and had to go pay at the machine. App clearly needs more development.

Hi Justin, In Miami, the PayByPhone decals list a 'location' code rather than a 'zone'. It's possible that you were parking in a competitor's location. Our support team can provide some troubleshooting if you create a ticket here: https://support.paybyphone.com/hc/en-us/requests/new Thank you /JV
