This app was great until the most recent update. Now it won't store my login info and a few times a month, it tells me my login is invalid when I try to use it and I have to call in. It also will seemingly let you extend your parking time over the stated limit of the parking zone, won't alert you that you can't extend the time, won't extend the time but will charge you the $0.35 fee. So I have to wait for the current session to expire and start another one right after. So it makes some things more convenient but I've found other apps to do a much better job.
As others said, too many permissions. I am also frustrated that it floods my inbox with so many emails just for one parking period: 1) payment processed, 2) payment receipt, 3) parking activated, 4) 15 minute deactivation warning, 5) parking deactivated. I only need an email for payment receipt with the time periods for parking.
The only issue, big issue none the less I have with this App is the whole park mobile wallet. Like why the hell do you guys want to take $25-$75 money out my account to put in the wallet when I can just pay straight from my card what I'm comfortable paying. You force the user to have at least 25 bucks in there account
New version has bugs. Biggest issue is it doesn't remain logged in, so you need to enter email address and password every time you open the app. Also, the auto-texting with no prior authorization was a problem, so I just blocked the number. Broke a lot of the things that just worked in the old version. Only use it because I have to.
Makes parking at my gym pretty easy. My only problem with it is that they made some recent UI changes and managed to bungle the login process along with them. I have to remember my login info every time I use the app, which is a kind of annoying experience at 6am.
Update makes "renewing" a session a much bigger hassle. I should be able to pay-to-park in a previous spot by clicking in in my "previous sessions". waiting for the GPS map to upload with incorrect options just slows everything down, which is bad because I am already racing an attendant so that I can re-new my session in time so I don't get a ticket.
