GasBuddy

You wouldn't mind driving an extra couple of minutes in order to get gas for say, 10 cents cheaper a gallon, would you? How many times have you filled up your car only to drive up the road and notice the lower pricing, and then calculate how much it would have saved you. GasBuddy, a popular BlackBerry application that allows you to find the best prices in your area, has just received an update bumping it up to version 2.6.3. This update brings a few warmly welcomed changes.

  • Better GPS tracking, more updates and quicker finding capabilities including the addition of Geolocation locating abilities.
  • Added approximate driving travel time from current location to station.
  • Added integration in the BlackBerry Maps App, "Gas Stations Nearby" in context menu.
  • Fixed freezing issues.
  • UI updates including cleaner icons and adjusted spacing.

Whether you are a current GasBuddy user or someone looking to try it out for the first time, be sure to grab this free download from the link below. A free application that helps you keep a couple extra bucks in your pocket when filling up your vehicle, how could you go wrong?

95% of the time Poynt's gas prices are wrong. I think they are fed by the gas stations themselves.

GasBuddy relies on people feeding the prices and they are usually spot on correct.

It is better than Poynt because if you update a price with this app it will actually show the newest price update in Poynt. You cannot update prices through Poynt...

I've been using the application for some time and indeed it is really easy to use. The above improvements were really necessary, especially the freezing. I highly recommend it to anybody that has a car.
Also it is fun (and easy) to report prices. You never know... One day you might win the free gas weekly prize.

I used to use the mobile website awhile ago, but when I saw there was an app, I was stoked. The app works great and includes gas stations on military bases if you can use them. Poynt doesn't do that.

I've had this for a couple of weeks as well and to those wondering, this works all across Canada.

I have used this app for years. i believe it updates prices quickly (about every 15 minutes i belive). the gps will help with the upgrade as well. very nice. Now to make sure BB is current ...
