Outrage as NSW Government service app CRASHES leaving thousands unable to cash in on free dining vouchers and check into venues
- Service NSW app outage leaves thousands unable to cash in Dine and Discover
- App also allows users to display licence or check into venues for COVID tracking
- People complain the blackout has ruined their plans or left them without licence
The Service NSW app has broken down, leaving thousands of people unable to cash in on their Dine and Discover vouchers or show their licence to police.
The app allows people to check into a venue for COVID tracking reasons, display their drivers licence, pay for fines or redeem up to $100 on meals or other experiences through the Dine and Discover scheme.
Service NSW said the app was experiencing an outage and asked people to check-in to venues using a webform on their browser for COVID tracking.

People have complained on social media that the outage ruined their plans for the night, or they relied on the app to prove their identity.
‘I need this app to show my license to police when pulled over on the way to work Monday,’ one person said.
‘Any chance of this being fixed tonight because friends and I are about to go out,’ wrote another.
The Dine and Discover scheme gives all adults in New South Wales four $25 vouchers to spend at restaurants, cafes, bars, wineries, pubs or other tourist experiences.
They can be redeemed seven-days-a-week at any business which has signed up and are valid until June 30.
More to come.
