It's hard to figure out how to post gas prices from the mobile site, so I end up just viewing the desktop site and doing it that way. Put an option right after you log in on the mobile site for reporting prices.

Thanks, haven't used it in a while. I have a dumb phone and don't bother with the web on the phone except when traveling for work and have been on a travel break.

It changed awhile ago. And these were good changes.

I agree that he was talking about the mobile site not one of the apps. But, apparently it wasn't all that important to him.
When did they change the mobile site?

Yup Gas Buddy that's pretty much how it's done.

By mobile site, I think he is talking about just that, the web sites for mobile devices, not the app.

That said, the new mobile site has a better look but isn't nearly as useful as the old one. Reporting prices is more difficult and you don't have access to Favorite Stations Lists.

Isn't all you need to do is tap the station that shows on the screen, that shows on the screen, and then tap the price box, from which you can then post the price of fuel, and then tap the "submit" button?

Seems pretty easy and intuitive to me.

Or you saying you have a different problem?

Are you talking about the mobile site or one of the APP versions?

I have never used the iPhone app so I can't say which is better. I love the Android app.

What mobile device are you using?

On the Android app when you are on the home page, tap the "Find Gas Near Me" icon and you will get a list of stations. If you want to access you favorites, tap the "Favorites" icon.
