You have to remember, regardless of what device you are using, when using the mobile app, the GPS has to be enabled, I'm not sure of any laptops that are GPS capable, but I know most tablets today and most smartphones today have the capability of using GPS! I have had my tablet for more than 3 years now, and the GPS/GasBuddy mobile app works just fine on it! Ron

GasBuddy has an iPhone mobile app at the App Store! As far as using the laptop, there are no extra points, GasBuddy did add videos to the desktop/laptop website, because GBs complained that they were missing out on those extra 1000 points each day, but in reality, giving the website GBs the videos, really helped GasBuddy earn more money for each video watched! The weekly extra 8,000+ points comes from the mobile app only, Sunday through Saturday daily challenges worth 850 to 1,000 points, and the one weekly challenge worth 2,500 points achieved Thursday through Saturday! Just think, there are tens of thousands of GBs that only use a smartphone and miss out on approximately 4,475 points each week because they don't get the extra points on the website! Ron

GBs with the mobile app got 1,000 more points today than you did, so it doesn't take long for another GB to catch you and pass you! Of course, every time someone passes you, you drop lower in rank! CC also told me, "Challenges/points/awards/etc. are all just for fun. The real purpose of GasBuddy is to work together for fuel prices . . . Try not to be too concerned about all the just-for fun stuff." I responded by saying what a big downer it was to miss out on any points! I do know one thing, GasBuddy is not going to reverse course, to them, the fuel prices we provide them is big money for them and also watching all those stupid videos are big money for them also! But, they are right about the primary purpose of why we, the volunteers, are here, "Consumers working together to save on gas"! Oh well, that's the life of a GB, we can stay, or we can retire, there will always be someone to take your place! Ron

GasBuddy did offer an alternative, use the website only and get less points, or use the mobile app and get more points! In April, probably less than 50% of GBs were using the mobile app, remember GasBuddy was also having all kinds of problems with getting the app to work on different phones with different operating systems! Very few GBs have an issue with the mobile app now, there are some, but now more than 80% of GBs use the mobile app on smartphones and tablets to get maximum points each day! GasBuddy doesn't care, their response to me recently, "NO ONE is expected to report prices at all. We're grateful for any current prices you and other members are able to report in your travels, but we do not expect it of anyone. per CC" Ron

Lots of GBs that don't have smartphones can use a good quality tablet, they seem to be in abundance nowadays! We have 3 here at the house and use them along with our smartphones! Using the mobile app on a smartphone or a tablet the GPS has to be enabled in order to get credit for posting gas prices, and also the daily and weekly challenges, that's where the extra points come into play! Also, reporting gas prices, a GB has to be within 4 miles of the gas station, I have 3 gas stations I report all withing .3 miles of my home, the other gas stations are too far, more than 5 miles, so if I reported them, I wouldn't get any credit for doing it! You also have to have wi-fi avail, other than home, free wi-fi is at McDonalds, BK, Lowe's, public libraries, etc! Ron

3800 cd's, congrats!

A BIG CONGRATS on reaching 3,800 consecutive days, can you believe, every day for 10 years and 150 days! Wow, another milestone has arrived! : ) You have worked too hard to give up now, it's not time to retire yet! Using the GasBuddy app really helps GasBuddies to post everyday, which is the smart way to keep up with GasBuddy nowadays! Sill less than 20% of GB do not use the mobile app every day, missing out on more than 8,000 extra points each week! Your Consecutive Day Rank is: 32 of the top 4,000 GBs! WARNING! Every day GBs lose their consecutive days, many with big numbers, the #1 reason, oops, I just forgot! :( It's sad to see many of my buddies start all over after many years of hard work! Hang onto those hard earned consecutive days as I track your progress to the next milestone at 3,900 days! Thanks buddy for your 12+ years of dedication here in GasBuddyLand! Have a nice weekend! Ron

Interesting GB name, care to share the meaning??

Wow! Another year has gone by! A BIG CONGRATS on reaching your 12th anniversary here on GasBuddy! It's great to see GBs still here contributing to GasBuddy after 12+ years of posting gas prices for others! Most GBs that signed up, quit or will only show up occasionally, most will not make it to 1M! Many GBs retired way before 12 years, but you are still here! Keep going as I track your progress to that 5M milestone! Almost 6 of 9 GBs now use the GasBuddy app! Using the GasBuddy mobile app helps a GB keep their consecutive days almost indefinitely, earn more than 8,000 extra points each week, that's more than 200k every 6 months, and stick around longer! Keep going, you've worked too hard to get where you are today! It looks like many of the leaders are going for that 6M milestone and beyond! Thanks buddy for your 12+ years of dedication here in GasBuddyLand! Have a nice week! Ron
