When we were at PVB, their information was incorrect.

We used the laundry machines one time. The data on the web pages never matched what was actually happening in the room. That day, it never showed any of the machines as in use. Several dryers were in use when we walked in.
Site never reflected that.
When we started using the washing machine and eventually the dryer, the site still never updated. (I did several refreshes over an hour).

Another great idea, but it needs to work.

Thanks for the update. I knew it was too good to be true...😔

I just moved away from a condominium that had these. The really tech savvy condo members figured out how to place a hold on the available machines.. so they sat empty and not used until they decided to make their royal entrance with their laundry. Then I figured out how to unplug the washing machines and wait to plug them back in to reset them. Also had unbelievable problems swiping the credit card over and over and over They are very tech sensitive. Hopefully they have improved the technology but I hated them!
Does this mean the washer&dryers are not free anymore or soon to be not free anymore?

They are still free-used them at BLT last week-really liked the website as I could track the progress while at the pool and make sure I didn't leave stuff in the machines longer than needed.

AKV Jambo had a sign for these in the laundry room on the 5th floor last week. I noticed the washers and dryers were new since we were there last September. Even on lowest setting the dryers were very hot.
The washers tell how many minutes the cycle takes--I think it was 34.

Didn't work on my iPad either - very annoying.
My best guess: any web site can tell if it's being accessed by a mobile device. Some will not accept mobile access through a browser, esp if an app is available.

The web site requires Adobe Flash which Apple products don't use. This is why it won't work on an iPad or iPhone.

Makes sense. No problem on Apple desktops or laptops, just on their mobile devices.

It doesnt work on my ipad, but it does on my iphone. i just pulled up BCV on my iphone. If it was due to flash it shouldn't work on my phone either, but it did.

Very odd.
