When I started using GasBuddy, I had a BB Bold. The app was fantastic since I was on the road anywhere in Canada. It was always spot-on and accurate. One feature I particularly liked was the ability to add a photo of the station, it it was not there.

I have since upgraded to BB Z10. I can not figure out how to add a photo in this version.

1. Can this still be done, or was it removed as a feature?
2, If it can, how?

I just realized it when I was putting the post in the BB and trying to link back here. I tend to blur these two forums together when reading them as some of the posts cross both with a suggestion and a question. And when making a suggestion you are "Talking Back to *Them*" as a suggestion to the membership without the PTB for site/app changes is going to go no where.

I put it here: http://www.gasbuddy.com/Forum_MSG.aspx?master=13&category=1750&topic=550531&page_no=1&FAV=N

This isn't actually a suggestion and should be in the TBTU category. And the Blackberry forum.

Yep - it seems not a lot of BB action here, but adding the link back here would be good and then reporting back if answer is found in the BB forum.
With the weekend here, it may be a awhile before we hear back from anyone at the Gasbuddy organization.

Seems odd that the OP had a BB when he started using Gasbuddy unless he joined before he started using. Or, maybe the BB folks can help him overall with using the BB App for all the features.

I'll post a link for him over in that forum.

I agree with TxJeans -- it's reasonable to post it in both places. Or, post a brief note in the other category with a link back to this thread.

TxJeans,

Did someone complain that I suggested this question be asked in the BB forum?

Personally, although it makes sense to ask here, I also think it makes sense to ALSO ask in the BB forum where you know there are folks using the BB. I don't usually recommend cross posting on most bulletin boards, but in this case it makes sense.

At least on the Android version, the upload photo appears in the lower left hand corner of the screen when you load the Station Details page. I have no idea if this exists on the BB or iPhone versions.

While it wouldn't hurt to post the same question in the BB forum in addition, I think SM thinks it should be posted there and only there.

Perhaps GBO deleted the ability to use the app to upload photos and left it to the full site. A mod will have to answer that. (I don't recall ever seeing it on the iPhone.)

Just out of curiosity, when it did work and you were asked to pick the photo to upload, how did you specify which one? Is there some location and file name that you selected or otherwise specified? What was that process like?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't a BB Z10 a Blackberry device?

dannomillano:

I took scoutmaster's suggestion as not saying you shouldn't ask the question here (and be dependent on when the moderators can answer the question) but that by (also) asking the question in the Blackberry discussion forum, you're likely to get responses from those that may have had the same problem and can quickly answer your question.

It's just one more way to possibly get answers to your questions.

I am confused. What does Blackberry have to do with it. They did not write the app.

In the old version ( 7.0 and below), there was a button to 'Add a Photo'. In this version for BB10, there is not such a button. This seems to be an oversight on the part of the software developers at GasBuddy.
