Great app. I'd like to see 93 Octane as an option, though.

Does anyone else have trouble getting all the nearby stations to show up in a search for nearby stations? Sometimes I can be sitting at the station I want to post, and it doesn't show up in the search. Other nearby stations show up, but the one I want is missing.

I often pull in to the stations that I post regularly, to get prices for all grades from the pumps. That's when I usually post most of my prices, using the mobile app (Android). If I don't pull in, I usually try to post while at a stop light, or else I pull over.

Also, has everyone noticed that the prices can be entered by speaking the price? (select the microphone on the keypad)

I don't care how easy you think it is to use the APP, DON'T use it driving. You don't realize how easily a little thing can distract at just the wrong time. PLEASE don't GB and drive.

I'm a very enthusiastic price poster, putting in lots of prices even after I've reached my maximum.

My motivation is that, besides helping my fellow gasbuddies, it forces retailers to keep their prices down. If a dealer knows that people can easily find a cheaper price nearby, he'll reduce his price to stay competitive.

"Just don't try to use that app when you are driving ..."
Actually easy to use when driving. Launch it before you start to drive. The buttons to refresh are easy to use, without even looking at the screen.

My current phones aren't "smart" but I just got a tablet a few months ago, and it's come in handy both for reporting prices and for checking on recent updates. It's nice, especially while traveling, not to have to rely on prices that I saw last time I was at my home computer, which can become outdated in mere hours during price swings.

I started off on the GasBuddy mobile app. Then a few months in went to the web site.

I think we all understand how "Having Mobile GasBuddy App installed on your smart phone will pay off!!" does pay off!
