Love being able to pay for, view and extend my parking sessions. The only reason I can't rate this 5 stars, and it's significant, is the notification system doesn't work. I have it configured to notify me, and send me a text message when parking is about to end. Notifications don't work at all (Android). And text messages arrive 5 to 10 minutes after parking has expired. No bueno.

Very difficult app to use. The app makes it very difficult to select a date and time. Then when it searches it defaults to Chicago for some reason, even though its clearly an app for Minneapolis. When you finally do get past the terrible spinning wheel to select the date and time and get your location correct, then make sure not to zoom or pan around the map. Otherwise it will reset thr date and time and yoill havd tk go through the terrible UI all over again.

Installed it thinking I could use it to pay for parking today....boy was I wrong! Took forever to respond to any tap, and when it finally made it to the point where I could enter the meter number and duration, it completely stalled......forcing me to dig for change, run across the street to the bank, wait in line for 10 min to request $1 in quarters to then finally be able to pay the meter. Too bad, as the app has a great concept
