Review from Robert Ward
If everyone would use it Great app for savong om gas! If everyone uses ot properly, & I am guilty of this, users have to remember to update prices as we gas up.
Does the job
APP seems to update daily, in addition to loading ads while using. Often get blank white screens when using in car and often can't connect to WiFi when other apps will. Works best on WiFi at home on (s)low bandwidth. Can get more points via mobile at station than web version; but, see no advantage. However, I do report prices and do use Gasbuddy to find best deal when I need to purchase gas. YMMV !
Love this app.. it's a real time and money saver. Recently took a road trip and this app was invaluable at saving me big time. EDIT: Since my review of this 5 years ago this app has gotten progressively worse. They have increased the amount of ads, as if it costs them all that much to run this app, the community does all the work. Also, with all of the changes in the app, it now loads slower than ever.
I had this app on my last phone and absolutely loved using it. Keep in mind that it may take awhile for some gas prices to update as that they are posted by other users who are in the area. UPDATE; only works as good as those who update gas prices. Lately I've not been able to use this app because prices are not showing up in my local area, just shows dots instead of numbers.
Originally I gave this 5 stars. Now we're down to 3. Why? You know that Favorites icon? It's TOO SMALL TO HIT WITH A FINGER. That is, without hitting the gas station that comes up on the main screen. Put the heart back, and make it BIGGER. Human fingers are bigger than a pen stylus.
Since the "major" upgrade there have been tweaks that have brought the systemback into focus. the speed is still somewhat hampered but the accuracy has improved. Most of the problems are probably now user related as far as keeping pricing current. I think competing stations now use this as a weapon by falsely reporting HUGE price increases.
