I would like to suggest a widget for the android mobile app. Show the current price of the favorite stations or the widget can update every so often with current prices of stations nearby.

"...a widget allows you to display info on the home screen of your phone without actually having to go into the app, like a shortcut."

My cell phone already has the Gas Buddy app on the home page and it's one click to open the page to post prices. Am I missing something even quicker that wouldn't take up a major portion of my home page? After all, while it may be convenient to post prices from my home page, Gas Buddy isn't the only (nor the primary) thing I'm using on my phone.

Thanks scoutmaster, I wasn't aware I could build my own widgets. Gas Buddy a widget allows you to display info on the home screen of your phone without actually having to go into the app, like a shortcut.

The OP wants a widget for his Android. Very similar to an app but slightly different. Right now there is only the app. But you could build your own widget.

The favorites list on the Android mobile app already lists the current prices. What more are you asking for?
