I was using this app to find parking in very urban spaces (Los Angeles). There were inaccuracies in some of the information, so I started contributing edits, which I thought would be helpful. I started doing the challenges, which were to submit photos of parking signs. Apparently, I inadvertently submitted duplicate photos for a few of the challenges (I used GPS for the address given) which prompted them to completely wipe out all of my points. Harsh. I honestly tried to help.

The app is rather useless for actually finding available spots. It also constantly erroneously detects me driving when I just walk around. There is no way to disable that "feature". It is still useful for parking location map, street cleaning information, and reminders, but most of it is negated by bad implementation of driving detection. edit: So it is possible to disable the driving detection. But it is not obvious how right away.

Hey Mikhail, We are super sorry to hear that. There is actually a way to disable the parking detection feature. It is on the side menu in the "parking ticket protection" feature. Feel free to email us at We would love to get more of your feedback to get a chance to get better Thanks!

The app is generally good. It shows where I can park and for how long and even let's me search for future parking to plan ahead. There are two flaws though. First, the GPS isn't accurate. When I stop moving the map will start rotating such that when I look back at the screen I have no idea which way is forward. This doesn't happen with any other gps enabled apps, so it's clearly not a hardware issue. Second, the map doesn't show the direction of one way streets.
