With the cost of gas these days, anything that helps you to save a couple bucks at the pump is always welcome. If you're in the US or Canada and want to find the best gas prices around, you should check out GasBuddy for BlackBerry if you haven't already. GasBuddy is no n00b in the BlackBerry world, and has in fact been around for several years, getting better and better all the time. The most recent update for GasBuddy brings the app to v3.0.0.1 and has a bunch of new features and a fully renovated interface to make it easier to use and get the information you need quickly.

  • An improved interface throughout the entire app including bigger prices, bigger distances, cleaner and more polished icons
  • Zoom in to station photos to get a better look at each gas station
  • A new photo uploading system that allows you to upload from your gallery
  • The ability to share gas prices as you report them with friends on BBM.
  • A new user profile that allows you to update your picture using BBM, your picture gallery, or your camera.
  • A new win gas page that better identifies your ticket balance and prizes
  • A new settings page with a better breakdown of sections and many new settings
  • Removed unnecessary clicks and potential circular usage points.
  • A number of tweaks and optimizations to speed up core features

Not only is GasBuddy a great tool, it also provides the opportunity to help out your neighbors by reporting the cost of gas you see around you. You can send in the current prices, and when you do you're entered to win a free gas card worth $250. The app is also BBM connected, so you can share those low prices with your contacts and help them save some money as well.

This is great & all, but doesn't point offer the same info, along with other stuff?

Gas Buddy is much better than Poynt and tends to be updated more regularly by other users,

If you haven't noticed, Poynt's gas price search is powered by GasBuddy. =)

Plus I like apps that do one thing, and do it well. Poynt does too many things. Personal preference, I guess.

Oh okay, I was just wondering

Poynt is no longer being developed too, if I recall correctly.

I hope when Gas Buddy comes to BB10 that it gets mapping like the Android version

It has a map feature already.

This is a great app. It has saved me enough money to buy a BB10 device when it is launched.
