SpotHero has been eliminating parking hassle through SpotHero.com for some time – and this service is now available via smart phone apps. Both iPhone and Android apps are available for download right now for free! No computer – no problem. Search, reserve and purchase your parking spot all from your hand held device. Below is a quick run-down and tutorial for the SpotHero iPhone app.
After setting up an account with SpotHero the app will automatically search for parking near your current location. To change the date and time of when you would like to park tap the “Filter” button. You can tap “Redo Search in this Area” for parking within your desired time, or if you would like to search a different location simply type in a new address. Once you have found a spot, click the blue marker and then the blue right facing arrow icon.
Here you will see various options listing the spots pricing and time period. Depending on your preference, choose the best one for you and click the box to advance to the next screen.
The “Spot Details” screen is next. Here you will see a summary of your spot details including the location, time reserved for, price, spot information, and credit card details. If you click the “spot information” tab you will see a detailed description of the spot, directions to the spot, spot restrictions and any other additional information. *Be sure to read through this section as some spots can be difficult to navigate. The “Checkout Details” tab shows the credit card that will be charged for the spot. If you have multiple cards on your SpotHero account you can tap this tab and switch to another card. If all the details are accurate you can then tap the “Reserve Spot” button.
After you confirm the purchase you will be shown a receipt with all of your spot details, which can be accessed at any time by clicking on “My Account”. This information will also be emailed to you.
Within the receipt page and the email you will have all the details for your spot. It is important to read through the receipt page as many parking locations can be tricky to navigate and might have additional directions. If you have any questions or troubles with the parking process please call 312-566-7768.
