Functionality, Content, and Bugs
This app is very simple and does everything well. GasBuddy is very fast. With sorting by distance and lowest price, you will be able to find what you want right away.
Unfortunately GasBuddy does lack some of the website’s features like the trip mileage calculator and logbook tools, but I suspect many don’t really use these features of theirs anyway.
If you find it useful (and you will the first time you use it), you will find yourself wanting to report gas prices to help others. When you update a price, you get points. For each gas price you report, you earn 150 points. If you report all three types of fuel plus diesel, you can earn 450 points at a station. These points can be used to buy tickets for a weekly raffle drawing for a $250 gas gift card at a station of your choice. The more prices you report, the greater your chances to win! Best of all, you can buy raffle tickets straight from your phone and it’s completely free to enter!
One bug I did find while using this app is if you are logged into your account and you are on the main menu and rotate the phone to landscape, it automatically logs you out of your account. Something so simple as this shouldn’t happen and hopefully it will get fixed in the next version.
