"iPhone runs tackle against meter maids" - The Boston Globe


Get SWEEP:BOS and receive notifications to move your vehicle due to scheduled street sweeping, street cleaning and snow emergencies for the City of Boston.

Finally, a way to avoid costly parking tickets or an expensive tow due to street sweeping or snow emergencies.

Between confusing schedules, inconsistent street sweeping and street cleaning dates between blocks, and early tow-times, street sweeping can be a weekly struggle for many city drivers. And worse, when you forget to move your car during its street sweeping hours, you will get towed, a terribly costly mistake.

But those days are over. SWEEP:BOS will help you keep track of where your car is parked as well as your neighborhood's street sweeping schedule and snow emergency routes so you can stop wasting time and money at the tow lot.


Features include:

-Notifications 24, 16, 8, 4 hrs ahead of sweeping/cleaning schedule

-Saving your vehicle's parked location

-Conversion of days/times to actual Next Sweep Dates (i.e. 1st&3rd Tues to Tues, Oct 6th, 8AM-12PM)

-Adding/editing streets, blocks and sweep day/times

-Adding/removing neighborhoods

-Snow Emergency Route information

-Street sweeping color notification (Green = 7 days out, Yellow = 3 days out, Red = 24 hours out)

-Neighborhood information updated regularly and available for download

Boston area neighborhoods currently available (more on the way):


-Back Bay

-Beacon Hill



-Dorchester (north/south)

-East Boston

-Jamaica Plain/Roslindale

-North End



-South Boston

-South End

Accuracy of this data is not perfect and not guaranteed but it's the best of the available data (trust us). For discrepancies between SWEEP:BOS, and an actual posted street sign, then the street sign is always the one to follow. Please submit such errors so that we may fix them.

Inaccurate, awkward implementation, usability nightmare

- Version 1.2.1 Not only had the wrong dates for Cambridge Section E, it also had my cross streets listed in the wrong section. Version 1.2.2 appears to have the correct dates, but I would have been collecting my car from the tow yard if I had depended on this app for May 2009. Driver beware!

- I assumed this app would provide *actual alerts* (like an iCal alarm), it simply emails you, or emails your AT&T email to SMS gateway address.

- Sweep:BOS only allows you to save one location at a time. You need to manually enter the location each time to move your car. This is really bad If you frequently park in two different locations, and just want alerts for two different areas. It also means that to effectively use this app you'll need to manually enter the name of the street that you're parked on (from a list of every street in the neighborhood) — every time you move your car.

- The app does not "remember where you parked" as advertised. The app allows you to manually select where you parked. It would be much faster to just save your GPS location using Maps than to look for street signs and then search for those street names on a list. Is someone really going to go through this process every time they get out of the car?

- Lastly I would recommend, as you consider the earlier reviews, that they suspiciously seem to think this is the "perfect" app but provide surprisingly little detail as to why.

Sweep:BOS :: non-functional

This application does not work - I have never received a notification of a cleaning day, which is the only purpose of this service. I have tried to resolve the email notification problem with this company for over two months without results. They have not been helpful and have stopped trying to solve the problem altogether. Until customers start reporting satisfaction with this application, expect a virtual paper weight.

5/5 stars


If you live in Boston and park your car then this app is a must have.
