Just as every other review stated, what's the point of this app if you can't extend past the meter time. I get it that you don't want someone to keep extending time, but why not set the limit to at least 2-3 sessions or even half a session, especially with 1hr parking zones. and no, this is not that much easier than getting a receipt printed at a meter. I guess the only way to beat this system is to first park with a muni receipt, then start a session with the app when that expires... thanks for nothing NYC DOT.
It was a Great concept, it seems that I can't extend or renew time. Meaning that I can easily get a ticket because i would have to run out and pay the meter. I thought the point of this app was to make it convenient. But it seems that it was just to tease the residents and visitors of the city to parking on the street to then easily ticket them. Whether or not this is a conspiracy with the New York City Finance Department is questionable with the nature of the app. Besides the issues it would be great if i can park and extend because if I knew that i would have to run out of my kids appointments to the car to extend the meter i wouldn't have bothered parking on a meter.
Broken app. Couldn't even create an account even when using proper password requirements it still says I am missing a number or special character yet I have both. Once again the NYC government has proven that even the simplest tasks like creating a usable app, might as well be rocket science to them.
Not working on my phone. Please fix, update I had to try to go out of register vehicle page to get it to work. Annoyed that you have to fill to at least $25. Just read reviews and see that everyone had the same issue, you can't renew a ticket. Here's a little trick i thought of. Buy the first period by the meter and renew it once on the app
The application does not operate in certain location even though that zone area has zone number. For example, majority of queens location have zone number. However, it does not recognize the location therefore rendering the application useless. In addition, time can not be extended before the time limit expires. This function is not a problem in the city of Boston. Which I used, and there wasn't any $25 prepaid for unused currency.
This app won't extend nor renew after time expired! I believed the mayor is using this app to discourage vehicle into Manhattan! All paper meters were removed, no other way except to use this app or call in. Even you call in, it recognized cell phone & won't extend nor renew time on the same zone.
