How about a poll question on how gas buddy people input their prices...on iPad, Android, or laptop/desktop, etc.

I suppose GB management would know if the majority of smartphone app users do or don't vote in the weekly polls, but if app users don't, GB could insert an ad in the ad rotation on the smartphone app to remind users that there are 100 points to be had by voting in the weekly poll on the full website.

That question was asked recently, poll 2013-22:
When entering or checking gas prices, do you use the GasBuddy app / mobile website or the full website?

A majority use the full web site; however, it is likely that fewer of those who primarily use the mobile apps will respond to the polls.

Maybe such a question would tell us more about which people are likely to respond to the poll, rather than the information nominally asked.

There's a dedicated topic for poll suggestions; perhaps you should post yours there.

I would guess that the PTB already know how the prices are input, Perhaps they can share some of their statistics in that regard.

Not a bad idea but there are a lot of app only users who never visit these forums that would never see the question.
