Leave Well Enough Alone! I've been a subscriber for over 4 years. I was reluctant to update the app because of the negative reviews. However, after my phone mistakenly underwent a factory reset, I had no choice but to download this version of the app, which is a step backwards. Without an obvious explanation of all what's wrong, I just going to recommend the simplicity of the older version.
A Shadow of Its Former Self The cosmetic overhaul brought a dramatic loss of functionality. Tiny fonts and the loss of a rotation lock are annoying, but the horrible interface for entering prices is inexcusable - especially when it's a huge step backwards from before. I still really like the concept, but I'm about ready to give up on the app.
For the new version .. a new logo and missing features/function. Takes a LOT longer to start now. Before it was very fast -- not anymore. What happen to my favourites ? Carefully hidden under search. Why ? And it now takes 2 clicks for a favourite. And now the ADS will slide over the buttons you need to press to use the app! Prettier app with latest release, but less useful.
Still Frustrating Still having problems, but I like Gasbuddy and their customer service did their best to address my concerns in a timely fashion. The concerns below still exist, so I can't rate them any higher. Gasbuddy App is slow to respond or unresponsive altogether. I will be contributing less to Gasbuddy than I did when I had the BlackBerry version.
Half page ads now? Goodbye. Great app but half page adds really kill the usefulness of this app for me now. App developers need revenue. We all understand this but knowing where cheap gas is isn't worth the aggravation of these intrusive adds. Goodbye. Back to using my eyes to find cheap gas as I go about my day.
Inaccurate/prices aren't vetted This app is practically useless when all of the prices are inaccurate. Aside from the prices I've reported, I haven't seen any correct prices. It almost looks like the gas stations are reporting lower prices to lure customers.
- Fixed prices clearing when scrolling on report prices screen
- Fixed a number of rare crashes
