UK drivers - check out BP for BlackBerry 10

This application will only be of use if you are in the UK I'm afraid. So if you're not, feel free to stop reading now - but you don't have to! However, if you are here and you use BlackBerry 10, plus buy fuel at BP petrol stations you may well want to have the BP app installed - even just for in an emergency. 

There are only a few main reasons to use the app. The first is locating your nearest BP garage. You can either input an address or just hit the 'Find my nearest BP' tab and the map will open up - showing your current location and and also the BP station. You can press the green icon on the map for the full details of the garage - such as it's address, opening times, facilities, directions (which will open up BlackBerry Maps) and telephone - which will prompt you to initiate the call.  

Back to the searching options and both before and after the search you can use some filters if you need to. There are a bunch of options, but showing which are open 24 hours and also those that have Wi-Fi may come in rather useful for some. If you are a HGV driver there is an option for you too. 

Pressing the center tab at the base of the app will provide you will a host of information - not just about their fuels and services, but even menus of the food available. If you're partial to stopping at BP for a coffee at one of their locations with a Wild Bean Cafe the app will show you not only if your nearest location has the cafe, but also what it sells. 

With BP customers being able to use their Nectar card you can enter your card number for quick access to your points balance - you may want to redeem them in-store, so a nice option to have in the app. 

Sure, this one won't be for everyone but it's another positive sign that big name organizations are still developing for BlackBerry 10. The app looks good, runs perfectly and does just what it is meant to. I'll settle for that.

It's decent! Shame it didn't advise the petrol prices at the nearest stations!

I find this website to be useful for local petrol prices, it can send you a weekly email summary, and it looks like there's an Android app now - I will try converting and sideloading that will reply here if it works on BB10.2 or 10.2.1

Petrolprices.com

And no I don't work for them, just find it useful.

That's if it's a free Android app at www.petrolprices.com of course, not gonna pirate it.

Looks like a great app, but if BP knocked at least 5p a litre off their fuel prices I am sure they would get more customers. I used to use them years ago when I had a company fuel card but not now I have to pay myself!

If BlackBerry had decent navigation/mapping software, like Nokia, the location of petrol stations and just about anything else would be instantly accessable to you, offline, without the need for a separate trivial application. Sadly we don't live in that world.

Do they accept Tesco club card?

I know we're Brits and apologise for everything, but there's no need to apologise for being in the UK.

I live here too and I can't tell you how often I read articles that aren't relevant to us - of particular niggle are getting excited about competitions and discounts, only to see its only in the US or Canada!

Genghis2k3

I do commend the author for stating the limited availability clearly and early in the article and title. Now if others would consistently follow suit, that would be great. Regional/device/OS restrictions and price up front - wouldn't that be great?

George Jenkinson

I hope my comment wasn't misunderstood!

I only was pointing a finger at the way we Brits speak and in particular the "I'm afraid" element. We apologise for everything and my wife (who isn't English) finds it very odd when I say "I'm afraid..."

It was intended as a throw away comment. I'm sorry if it was misunderstood ;)

Genghis2k3

No misunderstanding - I was merely hijacking your post to commend the author.

However, I do find it amusing that you're apologizing for your comment regarding overly apologetic Brits.
;-)

Perfect for the Z30. The nectar and sainsburys apps aren't yet available for z30 but here's a good way to get your nectar offers.
