What you need to know about permissions
The RingGo application needs to have access to the following:
- We need to know the device's location so we can pin-point nearby parking spaces.
Photos / Media / Files
- This is required for Google Play Services (Google Maps). Google caches map information to your phone’s memory. But RingGo does not – and will not – access any of your files.
- As you might imagine, we need secure access to the web to find parking information and allow you to pay by phone.
Check out the latest update for the RingGo Android app, snappily entitled 5.4.
• When you register you won’t now need a PIN but can set your own password – much easier to remember.
• On the most important pages (Registration, Booking Confirmation and Add Card), we’ve added a secure connection message so you know your details are in safe hands.
• Some UI improvements (it’ll look better).
• More efficient code!

So handy! If you don't carry a lot of change with you then Ringo is perfect. Park and pay via the app. You can even extend your parking without having to return to your car.
Motorbike central london Totaly useles app if you want to. park for 1 month or more does not give you cost for parking and it stated that it is free for my location witch I know is not .Purchased my parking for 1 month from the website .No problem there.
Not working with HTC Desire HD The only way I can use this is with my tablet which I don't always have with me. And that it's why I give it two stars and not one. When I try with my phone it just force closes
Finally - no more scrabbling for change! I can now pay for parking with the one thing I've always got with me. Enough said.
Good parking app, but still needs work Generally easy yo use. It would be nice to know the tariff on the selection screen, as sometimes it offers the most expensive rate first. Its my most frequently used parking app.
Very convenient Really great APP but beware of booking via smartphone using 3g/4g whilst travelling via train after parking where a loss of signal can delay your booking. If the traffic wardens are on the prowl you may get a ticket before you've managed to book your parking.
Totally pointless I don't know why this app was created. You can't buy a permit for more then one day on here. The extend and park again functions don't work either so its not a useable app. Either ring the number or go onto the mobile website to purchase a permit.
This app cost me £40. Seems like a license to steel money. I downloaded this to pay for parking. I tried to sign up, ticking the boxes requesting a reminder text. But as I had previously registered by phone the app then forwarded me to sign in. I did so & it did not give me the option to request a reminder text again, so I assumed it had saved my options. I realised 5 mins too late that I had not been sent a reminder. I immediately renewed my time, but was too late & came back to a £40 fine. Cheers to the makers of this app for misleading me out of my money.
Broken Paid for parking. 2 hours. Correct location number. Now been handed a £100 charge for not having paid for parking. Even though I have proven payment on the app, on credit card and text message. Terrible! Do not touch this with a barge pole.
Convenient Makes paying for parking really easy. Gone are the days of accosting strangers in the street for change or missing spaces because you know you have to find a shop first to get change. Brilliant app.
Ringo parking payment app The app does what it says on the label, let's you pay for your parking by the phone. Works reasonably well. The only problem I have with it is that the slid, when you're trying to work out how much time you wanna put. Can be difficult when you're walking. Other then that works fantastic.
Handy but you pay extra for using it! It's a handy app when you haven't got loose change, but you pay more than the standard parking charges every time you use the app. Example 1 hour = £1 if you pay cash with the app at the same location 1 hour = £1.30 so be aware
Paid online then they had a cheek to give me a parking fine Wouldnt be interested in using this or the parking company again. Paid for two days parking, got the SMS confirmation and when I got back to my car the following day there was a fine waiting for me. Avoid!!
Can't register cards Was working OK, but now I can't register any credit cards via app, so now I am unable to pay for parking using this app, easier to pay via telephone, in spite of what they tell you on the telephone. Will uninstall.
Brill App is easy to use, easy to sign up with. Everything is self explanatory and it even searches parking areas for you if you need it. Couldn't ask for a better parking app
Nice works really well Pretty good and easy this is what apps are meant to be. Really simple and useful. Actually avoiding car parks that don't have this feature.
Great app Simple and easy to use. Removes need to carry cash for parking. Had a few teething problems with login and connection issues...Otherwise a really useful app!
pay in advance i would give this 5 stars but i cannot pay during free periods. i park my car at 0800 and then have to remember to use the app at 0901 to make payment. i wish i could pay at 0800 and for payment to start at 0900 ... thanks
Works well easy to use. Would awesome if all parking machinea had this feature. Its a pity that it needs a data connection to work. If it also used mobile network signal would be awesome
Useful Good little app, but a little clunky. Would be useful if you could save favourite carparks, the same you can with your car and cards.
Life saver I dont need to worry about change or the time. Can simply extend your stay via the app without having to run back to your car and topping up with another ticket. Stress free :)
Very convenient. As the only app that offers this service (at least in my area) the app could've been awful and still have to be used. So props to the dev team who have produced a well thought out app, with a great UI and nice touches like a text message reminder that you're about to go over your meter time.
Great on android, useless on Windows Since I switched from an android phone to Windows I haven't been able to use this app on my phone. Luxkily I have my android tab so can still pay for my parking that way. On Windows I constantly get the error: location error,unable to refresh the list. I can't even send my feedback!
Excellent App It works brilliantly. No worries if you run out of change for parking.
Useful but a bit buggy It is a useful thing, particularly since it means you can extend your parking remotely as you need but a number of times I have found that the app itself has temporarily forgotten what I've paid for so when I've checked it's said I haven't got any active parking tickets which has worried me and caused me to pay twice. However, the support has been good and I was refunded for this. There needs to be a persistent notification so that an alarm can be set to go off without fail 5 mins before or something.
Perfect. I run my own business, this is brilliant, no need to find £1 coins or get frustrated anymore....
Easy to use. But charges 30% more. Shame on lazy greedy people. ges 30% more. Shame on lazy greedy people.
Good, but could be better Great and simple to use. However, it would be nice to see the tarrifs before committing to pay. Also, not being able to extend a parking session just because it's free at that particular point in time is a pain, as I book a weeks parking when commuting into London.
Registration issues It's a clunky app... Slow overall.. But the annoying thing is my registration simply disappearing and blocking me out. I had to register all over again,which is slow and painful.
Ugly, and very tedious process Downloading, installing, resetting an old password and paying using this app took me fifteen minutes, standing in a cold street. The app could be optimised to work much better on flaky 3G connections.
Necessary evil... It's works marginally better, then payby phone... but... What type of idiot come up with this stupid scroll bar to adjust time? why i can't type minutes i need, instead of constantly trying to adjust this bar and end up paying for 33 min not 30? I have few cars on account and it always first car registered in app will come up first (not last one used) when you trying to pay, very easy to pay for a wrong car.
Very useful! An excellent and very convenient idea, saves the hassle of always needing coins. The process is fast and swift, I have no constructive criticisms or complaints about it. Well done!
Useful, but flawed. Could easily be better. Slider makes it difficult to set round number of hours. Snaps from 119 minutes 122 minutes but won't give me two hours. Hours/minutes switch would fix this. The big one is lack of history! Shows that a session has expired but not when. Was it two minutes ago or fifteen minutes ago? An alarm on expiry of session would be good. Instead I have to set my own. Very easy to implement within app, but it won't happen because of the impact on revenue from penalty charges.
Few changes needed Is there any chance to implement exact hour of session end. Keypad for entering could be bigger.
Incredibly handy I use multiple vehicles and already have 3 stored in 3 weeks. So being able to store the reg numbers and payment details makes everything very handy. Would prefer contact details to have a telephone number in case of issue and a chat option. Email is just too slow once you have parked and then have a problem.
Brilliant Fantastic app, easy to use, so unbelievably handy, especially if you have small children in tow and it's a pain to sort out getting a ticket at the machine! Love it - cannot believe it but the council have got something right!!!
Motor bike Had to change systems due to council getting new provider. The old system was much easier to use and alot more functional. This app is bad I hope they upgeade it soon
Great app but not great with multiple vehicles I love this app but when using with multiple cars is too easy to book the parking on wrong car. When booking it would be good to have to choose which car you want to park. 5 stars when is better for multiple cars
Easy peasey Love this app. It's so convenient and brilliantly easy to use even for a simpleton like me! It remembers your last parking space so it's quick to park at the same place again. You can even add more than one car. Best app I have ever used.
A step backwards in mobile parking services. I park in Westminster a lot for service work. Verrus (Pay By Phone), the previous service provider allowed you to cancel your parking at any time in your parking session. Customer not at home? No problem, cancel your parking and move on with a refund for your unused time. Parking on street all day? Go ahead, send multiple text message and you can park for days at a time. Now though, Parkmobile only allow you buy 4 hours at a time. Want to stay longer than 4 hours? have to wait for your session to expire then buy again and hope a vigilant warden hasn't given you a fine. Want to cancel your extremely expensive parking because the customer wasn't in? Too bad. Can't do that now. Worst of all is the lack of alerts when your parking is expiring. Neither the app nor the text service reliably alerts you that you're out of time. Mobile phone parking is the future of parking. But until the customer can choose their payment method, we will end up stuck with stuff like this.
Terrible First time I have felt inclined to review an app. The updated GUI is awful. Ruined a perfectly good app. Works, just about, but terrible user experience. Please revert to previous!
Recent GUI Change big step backwards Great concept but,... the change in GUI is a big step backwards. New GUI slow to update, tricky to use poorly formated. Text too small, most people have 4" plus screens why waste all that space. time slider irksome and unresponsive, People use this app outside in a rush when they are trying to park, make it big clear and simple. Ditch the sliders swipes etc please
Hate the update You made a nice, slick user interface over complicated and clunky. I can't see any benefits of the update for me personally other than it taking me a lot more interaction to achieve what I could do in a few clicks on the old version. The app interface also looks unfinished to me as well.
Nice try, but horrid experience I personally applaud any app developer that takes the time to make a bespoke UI for their android app, but the journey I have to go through now to park on a daily basis is tedious and unnecessary. The last version took me two taps to park. Now I need to swipe to open my history, which arguably should be the first thing you see rather than an empty screen showing no detail!
New update is awful New GUI sucks and it wouldn't accept my login details. Had to use my gf's iPhone which worked fine. Who on earth thought this looked better than the previous version? Muppets.
Hate the update!! This app used to work perfect. After the update keeps giving me errors... First of all and the most upsetting is the sign in error... It took me 10 minutes to pay for parking... Please solve this matter and I will give 5 star to this app. Thank you.
Latest update is the worst! Slider was one of the few annoying things in the last. Glad to see you kept it for the shittiest update yet. What a load of crap. Sorry I reinstalled my phone. You will successfully annoy me every day now.
Why change a perfect app???!!! Update is rubbish. Don't do it! ! Far worse looking and less user friendly!
Don't upgrade keep old version Don't know why, but the lastest version looks like it was developed by a novice. The UI is the most basic I've seen on Android for years.
New look is great! Just needs the green icons on green background change to white icons. Love this app. No more loose change for parking and reminders are so useful.
Normally £2 with Ringo its £13 The car park I use charges £2.50 on the ticket machine. With Ringo its £13.60!!!! Almost criminal - take the chance and go get some change.
Poor update Great app but it has not worked since the update. Can't log in and have to use the Ringo phone service to pay for parking now. Pointless
Poor No longer allows me to extend parking, strange error messages. Forces me to start a new session. Defaults to the wrong vehicle. No way to get a refund. I could go on... Please sort it out.
Why update the interface The new interface is terrible. It is more difficult to use. I used it to park in the same place each day, it now takes longer to do through new interface than it did with the last one. Please change back to old one
Loved the old version. Dread using this one - clunky and with an unfinished look and feel. Doesn't sit well on the screen and requires far too many inputs to actually park. Fix it soon - please!
Poor update Old App was great, quick and efficient. New update is clunky and no home screen so a lot more clicks to park. Please go back to the old app or at least include a home screen in the new one.
CONSTANT ERROR MESSAGES Since latest update, first I could not sign in without an error message. Restarted phone, could then sign in but still keep getting error message saying close. I think it looked better before also. Using a Xperia SP on 4.3, please fix.
Untrustworthy Thieves Location we were at said 24 hours was £8. We selected parking for 10 hours and then the app told us we had bought 14 hours and charged us £14.36. There is no way to contact ring go, the request a refund just tells you to call a number which has no option for refund and does not allow you to talk to someone. I wouldn't trust the company or app.
Worked perfectly no more worrying about change, Latest ! Since the upgrade has been a nightmare, why do they change what already works !
Get rid of the update. Previous version worked nicely. Map will not load.
Brilliant I use this app all the time for working out in the community. Receipts are very easy to locate and print off. Text reminders are great too. No more leaving a meeting to renew parking. And I love the new look...Absolutely brilliant
Has stopped working since last update.
Arghhhhh Latest update is a giant leap backwards. Interface is now awful and it took 45 mins of trying to get app to accept my payment. This is supposed to make things easier. Will not be happy if I get a ticket.
Nice and quickest option Nice but the latest UI update is a step back. Was clearer and easier to use before
Rubbish update Update designed to catch you out when booking. Use with care.
Old version much better. Bring back the start screen.
Poor update Apps UI is absolutely rubbish. Older version was much better
What a rubbish UI Used to be easy to use, simple, obvious, and could be done one handed whilst walking away from the car. This new look app is a complete mess. What on earth prompted the change? It's rubbish and much harder to use.
Rubbish update! Was a really good app but recent update makes what was once so easy time consuming and complex! It defaults to a hire car I had for 2 days years ago because the first letter is higher in the alphabet, parking in regular places is now more clunky. Poor!
Why you had to change ui? Used to be simple, transparent and very intuitive to use now it feels like step backwards!
Its great. why are there still cash parking meters ?
Does a good job, its a shame i cannot use it in glasgow
Why not a no stars option?????? This "update" has made this app from being great to poor at best. No longer opens at parking history page to see what time you have left. Won't allow you to extend if you have "recently purchased" a session. Been using this for years but what a poor show by RinGo
New version a poor user experience Useful features removed such as selecting car by make and colour as opposed to just reg, defaults to search by location number as opposed to rebook, etc
Just great This app is great and comes very handy especially when there is no cash point in the area you wanna park. Don't bother with coins in pockets just use this *****
I dont see how you improved it Previous version was better and simple to use.
Why does this app need access to my photos and other media?
Decent effort. Always a useful app. The new look is much improved.
This is not good why change something that was ok. If it ain't broke don't fix it! !
If it ain't broke don't fix it What was wrong with the old one and what's happened to the VAT receipts.
Works, but more expensive than cash App works well but really, what is it with parking and always looking to rip people off? No change if you pay cash. If you use a mobile app they charge you extra. Pffft.
Awesome but at a price Great app, perfect functionality, very handy when parking is about to run out and you can extend without frantically returning back to vehicle...but costs more than cash which isn't shown until after you've paid. Should be more transparent IMO.
Ringo Parking Excellent way of doing the parking it let's you know when your session is due to expire.
So close Great little app and a lot easier than logging onto the website or calling in. A few minor tweaks would make it perfect. Keypad input on the time / date rather than the annoying scroll system and make the duration slider easier. Its really hard to adjust to a single day parking, surely no one really books 9 or more months parking in a visit
So handy I never carry change & have found this app so handy. I've used it twice now with no problems. It was quick & easy to set up an additional car when I needed to.
Can't register Used phone to pay. Have now installed this app. Can't use it as it says "already registered". Email for PIN request goes to "request expired" web page. VERY FRUSTRATING! Will make sure I have cash in future. This is BAD.
For some reason it won't let me do more than 1 day at a time.. Seems like a bug but otherwise it does what is says on the tin
Useless Tried parking through app and phone call but only let's you select 24hrs. Ridiculous! Tried to contact you by website, again useless! Uninstall.
Very handy Just watching someone struggling to pay quickly at the machine before the bus departs at a park and ride... I'm watching from the bus where it took me less than 30 seconds to pay. Very handy.
Best thing ever Hated coins this is better
So easy to use ...and no fee compared to paying cash at location.
Easy Tried calling but it was useless. App was straight forward
So easy! Saves having to worry about change and some areas have discounts for using Ringo. Win Win!
So helpful Just needs to show what time parking expired
Works everytime No hassle of looking for change, and easy to keep an eye on time remaining and can extend if needed BUT more expensive than paying cash at the meter wtf, any app costs should be offset against cash collection from meters!
Saves time Its a cool app... Comes in handy.
Great app Does what it says. Quick easy and efficent
Imran Amazing app.pay for parkibg Hassle free.
Easy parking Very easy to use and a more convenient way to paying for parking
Quick n Easy Less complicated than others
Convenient The app is convenient as it makes parking easier, however it STILL crashes when I open it and I have to open in again. UI is still poor.
So useful Never worry about having change or not to pay for parking. The map is great to help you find parking spaces. Only wish the council would allow for more of them on the territory.
Amanda Couldn't do with out it.....just wish it was for everywhere x
Really useful and simple with good help systems Really useful and simple with good help systems but car parking is dearer than the meter :(
So convenient Gone are the days when you had to run to the nearest shop to buy a chocolate bar with a £20 note and ask for all pound coins in change. Brings down the stress levels.
Quick and easy once you know how to use it........
Great app, saves me time!!! Quick and easy way to pay for parking. Remembers my last location and vehicle so I can hit "park again" and go. Stores all my vehicle and location info, and emails me receipts which makes it easy for expense management.
Easy peasy Love this app. So much easier to park the car and not worry about not having a paper voucher.
Does what it says on the tin. Quick and easy
Excellent, trouble free Does exactly what you need it to
Excellent Handiest app I have
Not bad - needs an alert though Received a couple of fines because it doesn't have a alert for when your ticket about to expire... Ridiculous.. Get this added ASAP
Does The Job, Everytime
Easy to use No more calling to pay so simple
Does exactly what it says. Hassle free.
Pawel Nice and easy to use
Great app Love that it remembers your parking history. Takes seconds to park.
never fails save enough time******
Excellent app! I installed the app a few weeks ago and set up my account ready to go. Used it for the first time today - So quick & easy! I was on the station platform & didn't know the parking zone number ... No problem - I tapped the location icon and a list of local RingGo car parks came up (mine at the top) All I had to do then was enter my ccv number & I was done - 30 seconds max! Even got an e-receipt seconds later! So quick, so easy!
Brilliant! I have used this so many times and always grateful but I wish I didn't have to pay more than cash. Not in all boroughs so why is it not consistent
A God Send Wouldn't be without in my job. Great for city parking and topping up meter.
Epic This is so easy. And you only realise how much you have spent on parking when the statement comes through hahahh
Easy to use Admittedly, parking in city centre is always going to cost me more but this app makes it an easy convenience.
Wonderful app Don't have to look for change every time I go out...
Brilliant Saves so much time & don't need to carry change in my purse
Smashing Easy to use great tool. Very user friendly. Does the job and saves time
Good Easy to use. Crashes every now and then... would benefit from gps location
Best of all the parking apps Really straightforward to use; if only all the other parking operators' apps were as good as this one.
More expensive than cash Not only do they charge more than cash, it would seem many of the cash units they 'support' no longer accept cash.
Saves time! To everyone saying its more expensive. I thought that too. You need to turn the text alerts off, its cost 30p! The app does as it says no need to worry about fiddling with your wallet for change in the cold. Great app!
Cuts hassle Great app. Makes parking a lot easier. Just wish more car parks joined the RingGo scheme.
Very quick and simple to use Essential app for commuting.
Simple, easy, good
Needs improvment Very helpful but doesnt always work at every parking spot. The option to extend your time is great, but again doesn't work at every location
Concept great however some glitches I'm unable to log into app unless connected to wifi
Simple and efficient I never carry cash with me so that's the perfect app. After the initial set up it takes maximum 20s to pay. It's running smoothly on my Xperia, no issue so far.
Should default to last car registrations parked and make it clear the reg txt is a dropdown. Got a parking fine by paying for the wrong reg!!!! OK, just saw the "Developer" response - which looks more like an automated reply to any negative comment. What I want to know is - does the Developer agree this is a usability issue or not ? I am not the only one at my workplace who has had this issue and faced a fine through it.
Really struggled to change details when I've changed my number. I don't want to have to create a new email for every upgrade simply because I've chosen to change my number. Really difficult to get hold of a human via the app help section and I'm constantly told my login details are incorrect.
Cant even login Keeps saying my login details are incorrect even though I haven't even clicked sign in..please get some proper developers, this is embarrassing for you
Simple, reliable I've given up using cash or cards for parking on the streets of Bristol. This is a great app.
App offers excellent functionality and flawless execution It's just the amounts they charge over the standard parking rates are outrageous... Sometimes upwards of 30% premium
Easy to use, but a rip off! I generally only use this app to pay for station parking whilst going into London. Just got back from a concert, but got back past midnight. I'd already paid for a whole day as that was the only option, no partial days available. Because I went past midnight, I had to pay another day. Why on earth are there no options to pay by the hour, or at least part of a day. Such a rip off.
No customer service!! Accidentally put wrong details and paid for 2 days parking. Trying to rectify this and it's impossible. Rang a premium number twice and got hung up on costing me £4. Dreadful. Sort out and pay me back!!!
Very handy app now I don't have to get out of bed to pump coins into a machine. The one downside is it costs more than if you use a machine.
Thanks for nothing RingGo Just got a parking ticket because I didn't realise my permit had expired. Why is it every other app has push notifications but this one doesn't?
Pita Pain to use. Forgets your details. You have to enter some card details each time. Competitors have a much easier experience.
Aice This app is easy to use sent you a reminder 10 min before your session expires. However I paid this morning around 5 an hourlater whiles getting ready for work my shift was cancelled. I tried calling but was not given an option to speak to the operator. All I wanted is to change parking date from 12 to the 13 instead. I am very disappointed that this was not an option :(
Pay by phone parking This is a convenient way to park your car very quick and easy. However I prefer pay by phone parking the app is easier to use and does have options to park a number of different cars at once.
Brill don't have to walk to the machine then back to the car. Only down fall it's more expensive than the machine reason for 4stars
Great timesaver Simple and useful, saves me thinking ahead about needing shrapnel in my pocket
Time saving and easy to use If you park at Ringo car parks regularly this app is a must. Hassle free parking
Great app Very easy to use, and very useful. You don't need to worries if you don't have cash, coins...
Can't use before free parking ends. I would happily rate higher but to be told that I have to wait until 8am to use the app as that area is closed is silly. Clearly it isn't closed but parking is only charged from 8am.
Hated it at first but it has grown on me! Quick when you know what you are doing! Good app.
Simple and very useful I don't have to find coins ir have the tickets hanging around in my car. Great if I'm staying longer than I expected. I purposefully look for car parks that use this facility. Great, thanks.
Great app Just wish it would remember we have an electric car ?
Steve It makes life alot easier not having to worry about having change everytime
Swift and easy takes the stress out of parking... takes less than 10 secs to sort and no stupid paper tickets blowing off dashboards... great app
Really good Pity all carousels don't have it
Never Need Change Again Really useful ap. Used it in local towns and when visiting relatives on the south coast with no problems
Rural area and no data? Screwed Car parks that use this app should have some sort of data booster/WiFi hotspot located within. I have been ticketed for being in a rural area without being able to connect to data,walked away to find a hotspot and came back to a penalty stuck to my car. Other than that, the app works brilliantly and will upgrade my rating upon a response that solves my issues.
Overcharges I *hate* this app. It overcharges (eg. only giving until 7:26am despite having paid the full overnight rate till 8am. Then to top up till 8am it charges for a full 14 hours! Then you have to pay *again* if you want any extra after 8am. And of course you're having to pay a "convenience" fee each time. No response to complaints. Complete rip-off.
Convenient and quick! Saves so much hassle, don't have to try finding change and the way to go in this modern world full of technology. Allows me to park anywhere without worrying about going over on time or not having the right change.
Good. Minor flaws No messing with tickets, sticky windscreens, standing in line /queuing in rain for ticket and best of all it emails a vat receipt to my business email account. On the downside I think the app should charge the car park for the convenience of not having to put tickets, maintain or empty their meters rather than charge me 20p per transaction. Generally though this is a good but not yet excellent app. One day it might be excellent.
Very disappointed Was working fine until it 'updated' itself, now keeps showing error message... Despite reinstallment, the problem persists.
I've never succeeded in getting this app to work it won't accept my pin, when resetting my pin it says my email is registered to another account, there is no number to call for help, so thus far it's utterly useless. When I try to log in with my newly reset PIN it says it's incorrect and locks the account for an hour. Keep a tin of pound coins in the car it's much easier.
Works really well for me. Bit annoyed at paying slightly more for parking but I know that's probably outwith Ringo's control - although given its market position perhaps some harder negotiation with councils might be in order?
Easy life Simple, user friendly, first time every time. Great app!
Convenient Convenient and user friendly. Should charge the parking company the convenience fee and provide a wifi booster at pay stations to allow you to connect in rural areas. Good app recommended to colleagues.
Can't Park several cars I use the app all the time but when I want to pay for mine and my in laws car it won't let me use same bank card so have had to register the wife's card also. In response to the reply, therefore can you make it so can add multiple cars and pay for all at once to save standing around.
Good but should offer discounts Good service especially when you don't have any change, though given this is an app, and actually promotes people to use car parks more due to the ease of payment, there should be discounts offered to pay online. The admin / overhead charge has decreased (compared to of a pay-and-display method) so I would expect the savings should be passed on to customers.
Time Saver When rushing to catch a train it saves time as I can even put my parking charges while on board the train.
Joke The app charges more then Street parking in the meter....it never reminded me that my permit was due to renew and the next day I got a £50 ticket..the council shouldn't use an app that is useless
You can't please everyone! This app is fantastic in my opinion. Does everything I need it to do
Broken processes I used the iOS version for a couple of years without issue. I've moved to an android device and the first time I've tried to sign in found that no password I've ever used will sign me in. I attempted the forgotten password / PIN process and got an email with a link but the link was broken and takes me to an unresolvable URL with a DNS error. No amount of reissuing the email will fix this. My only option then was to attempt to re-register but this doesn't work because you can't hold multiple registrations.
Error! Can't pay for week parking since Wed 8 June. Only allows 1 day tariff option, please fix! Using Sony Xperia Z5 premium.
So convenient Yes, it does overcharges sometimes but only very slightly and is so easy to use
rubbish this app is very poor. cannot buy a 1 day ticket and does not remember car details
Easy way to book parking Unsure why there is a convenience fee, but other than that this is a pretty easy way to book parking on the day or to advance book
Is good to me a lot but I need permanent parking permit please how can I get some
Easy Easy to use and convenient when no change. Found I could use it in other cities too which is so easy.
Rubbish Doesn't work. In a park and ride car park where it's 3 pound all day but won't give the option
Excellent app No more looking for change or getting out in the rain. No more tickets. No need to say any more...
So much better than scrabbling around for change, it's overpriced though. Needs to reflect the same charges as cash.
Time saver Simple to use, fast, well worth having
Great service Easy to use and very quick when you dont have any cash. Highly recommend it!
Great App Use this all the time in London and surrounding areas never had any problems
I'll never pay with cash again quick and easy to use. you get charged an extra amount for using Ringo versus the old fashioned eay but its worth it. Dont need to worry about change, and even better you can extend your parking away from your car so you never need to rush or worry about fines.
Better design needed Generally good but works really badly with multiple vehicles
Parking Very convenient app to use when having cash is not available.
Quick no tickets. . . don't have to move to add time to parking.
Can't extend Update has stopped you from extending your parking. You also can't park 2 vehicles in the same area on the same card. This app is getting worse.
Great app Allows me to use Company Card instead of waiting for 30days to get my own cash back.
So convenient if you like me never have change!
More expensive to park with the app!! How does that make sense. Feels like you're promoting cash parking. Oh but the machines don't give change. Money hungry sly profiteering
Very useful A bit clunky but way better than the experience I've had with the robot on the phone.
Great for me I'm often running late so can pay to park when I'm on the train platform or actually on the train. Good stuff!
Great App Helped me immensely. No need for long phone calls. It is really hassle free. I'm happy with it and do recommend it. One thing though I did notice, is the App couldn't extend my stay twice, even if the sign on the road allows it, and I'm still within the time limits or restrictions of the zone.
Easy to use. Saves me keep on getting loads of change
Great app Works all the time and saves me money !
Always costs more and beware sms costs Haven't used for a while as it costs more than cash and previous versions were awkward to use. However, I've kept it installed and updated and the latest version I found very easy to use today. HOWEVER, it is hidden away how to opt out of texts. Parking and extension today cost me 80p for 4 texts, which I have previously opted out of. Ringo have re-enabled them during one of the updates!
Can't even set payment card expiry date What a waste of time, spent considerable time entering and re entering my details, this rubbish app refuses to display my card expiry month in its stupid calendar options when completing payment card details. Only offers Sep - Jan my card expires May. At least they will have gobbled up my other data which is probably what they really want. Total waste of my time. Best use good old fashioned coins.
Can't use Cant use the app due to pin/password problems. I can't set up the app because it recognises my email address from my phone call account I guess so I try resetting the pin but it won't saying the email address is in use. I know that's why I'm trying to reset the pin. I can't set up a new account as my phone number is already set to this account so the entire app is useless to me. Very disappointing.
Needs more work Parking meters in Sheffield where I parked are 24hrs. Yet the app told me I couldn't extend past 2hrs meaning I had to cut a night out short. Not great
Needs work Try adding more then one car and it show up but when paying for parking you can't select a second vehicle this needs fixing as I'm sure I'm not the only one with more then one car.
Works Does what it needs to do. No issues. No idea why the negative comments. Should never go out knowing you are going to park without having coins anyway. Not all car parks use Ringo. Be prepared and stop moaning.
Great app Haven't had any issues parking when I need to. Perfect for when I'm in a rush or leave my car overnight - can pay from anywhere!
Works Well Only niggle is that if you have multiple reg numbers stored the app defaults them in numerical order, it should Automatically select the last registration used. Because of this I accidentally paid for the wrong vehicle and got a ticket haha
Rubbish Its telling me that my phone number has already been registered but its my first time using it..
It's just the best parking app .. it let's me extend my time and reminds me when it's due to expire , it also sends the receipt by email, making expenses easier to submit cutting down on waste/litter.
Easy to use Easy to use, and really handy, even though the parking charges are a little more inflated that those displayed.
Great app Perfect you have no coins or are away from your car or need to top up your parking. Handy text reminder service.
Charges twice as much What's the point when the app charges twice as much as you would pay by cash?
Easy to use Brilliant app.. very easy to use especially after you have parked in a location and are parking again
Great App Makes parking so much easier and quicker, great to have it
Needs paypal Being able topay via PayPal would be ideal.
Easy to use Quick and simple when u don't have coins!
works Worth the little extra for having no change
easy to use pays for your parking with no fuss
Ringo Parking made very easy
Ok Very useful
Very easy to use
Poor response times, late confirmations When I first used the app it was pretty good. Now it's terrible, as it takes forever for their backend servers to respond (nice app, clearly poor IT infrastructure). Having spoken to a parking attendant, it would seem that they also suffer from late notifications that someone has paid. I recommend finding a car park that uses a different system.
Fumbling for change ? No more worries about scrambling for loose change.. I use this app quite a lot and find it both easy to use and safe. It stores previous parking meters which saves time too. It's one of those many apps on your phone that you actually will still be using in 6 months time..
