GasBuddy for BlackBerry 10 has been updated to version 4.7 and to celebrate, the company are giving away free gas every day for the rest of the year! Of course this isn't for everyone - you'll need to enter a prize draw but someone has to win.
In addition, there are a bunch of improvements to make life easier for you when using the app. If you've missed our previous coverage of GadBuddy the app is essentially community based to ensure you have the ability to seek out the cheapest gas around. You find cheap prices - you upload the info to the app - simple.
GasBuddy is another app that has regional availability I'm afraid - As the word 'gas' is used I presume it is North America only. I would love to see this one rolled out to other parts of the world. I'd use it for sure.
New features in version 4.7:
- Daily Prize Draws: We are proud to announce that we will be giving away $100 of FREE gas every single day in 2014. To enter the prize draw, earn points by reporting gas prices near you, then visit the prizes tab and tap the "Enter Prize Draw" button.
- Edit Stations: Users are now able to suggest edits for any gas station in GasBuddy. Let us know what fuels, features and details that a station has to help us improve our data and everyone's experience.
- Advanced Search: You are no longer limited to searching by location, city & state or zip. Our new advanced search allows you to search by city, state, zip, county, street, airport, stadium and almost any other point of interest that you can think of.
- Upload Station Photos: Users can now upload station photos from within station details. You'll find "Upload Photo" in the overflow(more) menu at the bottom right.
- New Station Photos Page: The new station photos page loads faster and has a similar feel to that of BlackBerry World.
- GasBuddy Blog: We have included a new tab called "Blog" which contains news, insight and analysis from our expert petroleum industry analysts.
