i recently got a Droid phone, and the gasbuddy app , but when i set my favorites up in the Droid, it made a list of 8 stations i frequent mostly ,and i named it "mygasstations" or something and it OVERWRITTEN my list i built on the main webpage Dallasgasprices,etc so thats all i have in my list ,so now that i go adding favorites on the webpage Dallas ,THEY DO NOT APPEAR IN MY FAVORITE LIST ,

so it seems like the favorites "arent on the same page" with what im doing

anyone see this happening?

help!

I finally found how to add a fav station in the app.
Long press stations name, then select add, or open station details, open menu, then select add.

I think your right. When you created the list my stations thats what did it. All my stations show up on my phone from my desktop when I downloaded the app. I then when in to my fav's list on phone and manually deleted the ones I don't use daily to shorten my list on my phone and all is ok. I still think you should uninstall the app and download fresh and use default on the fav's list.

I would suggest you contact the moderators and have them take a look at your profile.

from the Droid's Gasbuddy app...
goto favorites "the red heart" icon = add stations by touching each station listing you want to add, when done ,it asked for a filename since there wasn't any staved FSL's in the phone app, etc so i made up "MYSTATIONS" to save my 8 stations ,,thats how i got into the mess

/////If you only find one list in your main website, then likely the new list replaced the old one.//////

apparently i beleive this is what happened
i only had the default original list gas buddy provides when you save stations to the FSL (and not give it a name or use the one thats a default)
i think the phone app didnt recognize or see this list (phone app had an empty list) so i created an 8 station FSL and named it "MYSTATIONS" because it asked me to, and it replaced my old large list ,now all of that is gone

mines a Tmobile droid

and i checked into the favorite list editor on the desktop ,it has a list of saved FSL's ,but i only had one so ,it replaced what was there obviously now "MYSTATIONS" is only one i see
and it cannot accept more favorite stations either (saved from the desktop webside gasbuddy)

Very weird. I just tried adding and deleting stations from both my desktop and Droid and they both synced perfectly on both ends. My suggestion is to uninstall the Gas Buddy App and reinstall as a new uploaded app and leave all at default settings as is and don't name it something else. I don't know what type of phone you have but when I installed the Gas Buddy App my fav's list stations were all there automatically. ( I have the Samsung Galaxy S)

Have you checked to see if you have more than one list that you can select on the main web site? You might also check this link: Edit my favorite stations , to see if you can see there what is going on. On the edit favorite list page, you can change the names of lists, add or delete stations, re-arrange their order in the list, and move stations from one list to another.

If you only find one list in your main website, then likely the new list replaced the old one.

I have never seen this myself, but I have been using the app almost since it first came out, and I already had several well filled favorite lists at that time. Apparently the mobile app now adds frequently used stations to the default list, and then you are able to delete stations you don't want there.

it let me ,then asked me for a file name to save it ,so i gave it "MYGASSTATIONS" ,etc ,so now its the new default list showing up in my Droid and my home desktop website dallasGB.com site,
used to be the default fav list on the website ,and thats no longer there its like
"mygasstations" took the place of the other one ,it might have been named "Home" ,or something i dunno ,its the default one you have when you use your original fav list

end result: i can no longer save favorite stations in it , on the desktop
ill check my droid ,see if i can add to it

????

How do you add stations to a favorite list in the Android app?

I didn't know it was possible to create a new list there. I found you can add a new list, and did create a new list, but I could find no way to add any stations to it!

I always thought that the only way to create. add stations, and edit a favorites list was on the main web site.

Perhaps that's still the best way.
