You should add the website Trip Cost Calculator and Fuel Log book to the ipad app, and a service and repair log it would make this a very complete app.

traffic cop, I agree - this is a perfect fit for the mobile apps. Although I wouldn't mind seeing forums and news in the apps, I can see how those don't fit the mobile app particularly well but this one does.

I appreciate your point, GasBuddy. But I'll go on record that adding this to the mobile app would be quite an enhancement. And that would apply to both iPhone and Android.

As it is, I somehow manage to function in life, getting a paper receipt when I buy fuel, scribbling my mileage on it, and shoving it into a pocket for when I got home to the desk top. Oh, the hardship and burdens I bear!

But seriously. I'd love to do it on the app.

Why not what, Pmgr? You posted similar two word responses in other topics in this category. Seems like you are posting for points. That is what he Just For Fun (JFF) category is for.

I agree with you Gas Buddy. The app is very complete.

You can, of course, simply start up the full website from your tablet's or smartphone's browser and access all features of the website.

As for a "service and repair log", you're asking Gas Buddy to provide more on app than it does on the website, and asking for something that, if I remember correctly, the moderators say isn't a fundamental part of Gas Buddy's objective.

While I agree that adding the fuel log book to the app would be useful (a suggestion that has been brought up in other threads), it seems to me, and I may be in the minority, that the app (at least for the iPhone) is very complete as is. Especially considering that the full website is very easily accessed.
