Greetings everyone! We’re sure some of you have been wondering why there was no update from us in April. Did we hit a bump? Is the project still afloat? Well, rest assured, we’re not only afloat but we’ve been busily paddling through some choppy waters. 🚣‍♂️

April proved to be a challenging month for our team as we encountered some unexpected hurdles. We were thrilled to welcome a new developer on board, but the collaboration didn’t pan out as we’d hoped, leading to missed deadlines and a surge of bugs in our app. This put significant strain on the team, leading to burnout. We decided to give everyone a much-needed break to recharge.

We’re happy to report that everyone is now back on board and we’re stronger and more united than ever. (However, we did bid farewell to the new developer.)

Despite these challenges, we’ve managed to achieve some significant milestones in April and May. Let’s dive into the details:

1️⃣ Revamped On-Street Parking Policies Display for the Netherlands

Recognizing the complexity of the varying on-street parking policies across different municipalities in the Netherlands, we’ve improved our app’s display. We’ve simplified the original design to present only the most crucial information to our users in a more standardized and user-friendly manner.

2️⃣ Simplified Map Screen with Green Parking Filter

In our mission to promote environmentally friendly parking solutions, we’ve revamped our map screen. The new “Green Parking” filter enhances the search feature, helping users easily identify and choose green parking options.

3️⃣ Upgraded Gas Tank Queuing System for Improved Blockchain Transaction Speed

We understand that long wait times when multiple users are simultaneously using the app can be frustrating. We’ve worked on improving our queuing logic to make it more robust and efficient, translating into shorter wait times and a reduced failure rate for you!

4️⃣ Crypto Payment for Parking — Now Inside the App!

In a landmark move on May 28th, 2023, we became the pioneers of real-time parking payments using MoFi, a utility token designed specifically for mobility. This is a significant milestone, marking the beginning of numerous future use cases for MoFi. So keep your eyes peeled for more exciting developments!

Thank you for standing by us during these challenging times. We’re excited about what the future holds, and we can’t wait to continue sharing our journey with you!

5️⃣ Introduction of Brand New In-App Chat for Support

Customer experience is at the heart of our operations, and we’ve recognized the need for a more intuitive communication tool. After the unsuccessful implementation of tawk.io in Q1, which didn’t meet the expectations of our users or our support team, we’ve introduced a sleek, user-friendly in-app chat feature. This new tool allows users to reach out to us as simply as they would chat with a friend. We envisage this in-app chat playing a vital role in facilitating communication between people and businesses offering mobility services within the app. It’s all about creating a community feeling, much like you’d find on Google Maps with local restaurants!

6️⃣ Bug Fixes and Performance Enhancements

In our relentless pursuit of perfection, we constantly seek to enhance our app based on user feedback. This period was no different. We’ve fixed many bugs and made numerous performance enhancements. Our mission is to create a product that people not only use but truly enjoy. Your satisfaction is our ultimate reward. ❤️

We’re grateful for your patience and support during these challenging times. We’re excited about these updates and are confident they will significantly improve your experience with our app. Stay tuned for more updates!
