The Windows Phone app GasBuddy has been updated to version 2.0. GasBuddy helps find the best gas prices in your location and allows you to report gas prices for others to take advantage of.
The updated version brings:
- Directions provided by BING Maps
- Easier gas price posting
- An auto completion feature for searches
- User awards/achievements
- Improved GPS performance
The update also includes the customary bug fixes/performance improvements.
GasBuddy has a free membership option that allows you report local gas prices. In doing so, you earn points that can be redeemed for chances to win free gas. If you don't want to sign up for a membership, you can still use the Windows Phone app to find the best gas prices in your area. You can search for gas prices by city, state, zip code or just tap the gas pump icon to pull up prices based on your current location.
We've only tinkered with GasBuddy for a short time but it looks like an easy way to help save gasoline costs. GasBuddy currently covers the U.S. and Canadian markets and is a free, ad-supported app that you can grab here at the Windows Phone Marketplace.
Thanks, Jed, for the tip!
