GasBuddy is pleased to announce the newest iPhone app designed to help users find the cheapest local gas prices! Don't be confused- we had made our prices available to a third party iPhone app by Bottle Rocket, but decided to develop our own app- and it's now available- FREE- for iPhone, Android, and Windows Phone users!
Motorists looking for cheap gasoline can now find local gas prices and see real-time pricing on their iPhone devices. The free-to-download application uses GPS and cellular triangulation technology to provide listings for gasoline stations, or alternatively, users may search via zip code or city.
The Find Cheap Gas app has been very popular among motorists, having been downloaded over one million times in just a few months on other platforms. The app is designed to show the user local stations and their prices using information reported by GasBuddy spotters.
The GasBuddy application is now available for free on iPhone, Android, and Windows Phone handsets. We are currently developing the app for Blackberry and hope to have it available in the first quarter of 2011.
In addition to apps, we keep our users ahead of changing gas prices by keeping members informed on our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/gasbuddy) and on Twitter (www.twitter.com/gasbuddy)!
So Merry Christmas- our gift to our users- a free app! Be sure as you travel this holiday season to rack up points and report prices so we can all fight high gas prices!
