    Gregory Holm Published date: November 1, 2017

    This used to be a good app for finding out prices of gas. Now the app puts some station information over half of the map asking for an update on the prices for me to rate it. First of all, I may or may not know what the updates are and I cannot find out how to get rid of it. Let me see the whole map without interference and let me choose what station to go to - like I used to be able to do. How about putting a way to get rid of the station information like an "x" in the corner. I will probably delete this app because I doubt you will pay attention to it. Used to be a good app. Full Review

    The newest version where it doesn't show you all the prices on the map view until you tap search is not helpful. Even then it only gives a small area. AND it is super annoying that it zooms in to to cheesiest place, nowhere near my intended travel. I want to see all the prices along my route like it used to do. Please change it back to the way it was. Full Review

    Used to be amazing. This last update with the autozoom, the lowest price screen covering a large chunk of the map and you need to search areas and it then zooms in again...you can't disable this.... It makes for looking along your planned travel route very very frustrating. I really liked the older version. It was so much more user friendly. My suggestion keep it simple like it used to be.

    After submitting my last review and reading others with the same issue, I downloaded a different app that works like how gas buddy used to... when it was good. Going to uninstall gas buddy now. I don't know who updates the prices on the other app. Seem pretty up to date and accurate though. Probably can't say the name of the other app... let's just say "let your fingers to the walking" Full Review

    I used to be able to see multiple stations in a given area, very helpful when traveling and need to see if next exit is worthy of pulling off the road, or when picking best spot on the way from home from work. Now, as of Oct. 2017, it only shows 1 or 2 stations, if you wish to see more you have to slide the map & keep pressing "Search this area". What a pain. This stinks to say it nicely. Full Review

    This used to be a great app. Most useful was the map screen for quickly scrolling and seeing the best prices along a route. This has been ruined. An ad for a single station takes up a good portion of the screen. Prices are not brought in until you click "search this area," and then it zooms in on a single station which may be way down off your route. Prices are only brought in for a small area so are forced to scroll with no prices showing while fighting the ad, and then search again and have it zoom again to another useless station. A real shame for a formerly wonderful app. Full Review

    A Google User Published date: November 1, 2017

    Was the best app I had used. Period. Now, the latest version as of Oct 2017 has become less friendly. The big window displaying a single station is annoying. It covers half my screen with useless info. And I can't seem to turn it off. Also, in maps, the tendency to not display prices over an area makes the move map function pretty useless. Full Review

    Brian Scott Published date: November 13, 2017

    Used to tell everyone to use this app. Last update made map view almost useless. If they are going to force a selection they need to give a filter to remove brands because they don't include all brands. Also unless you have a tablet the screen map are is so small it's almost useless. Please go bad to an older version, the upgrades are going to kill your app!! Full Review

    When I first started using this on the computer only and then switching to the phone application, it one of the greatest apps that I've ever used. Unfortunately it has become very limited and unuseful. I'm speaking to the limited of area that I can see gas prices I may not want to buy gas in a particular part of the city but I can't see outside of the area that I'm currently in. I still like the app and the basic concept unfortunately it is not as useful as it once was. Full Review

    I like it but there are a few glitches. I moved fromCalifornia to WI, but my profile still says CA. I also have pulled into gas stations 3 times now, and the gas station is not shown in the app and there is no way to add it. I really wish they would add this. I do not like having to add prices in an hour apart. I am not on the road all day and night. Full Review

    Zach H Published date: November 9, 2017

    The terms regular and premium are confusing to most users. I'm constantly lied to by your app because people enter 91RON as premium and then I get there to find out that 93RON is 20¢ more than the app states. Please correct this. In America they have fuel in so many different grades. 91RON is not premium! Please switch to 87ron 89ron 91ron 93ron E15 and E85 Full Review

    App was fine. Recent updates have broken its useability. Map view no longer convenient for browsing location. Station preview on bottom of map cannot be deselected. Takes up room. Stations not visible and areas have to be searched again to get results. Time consuming, annoying, inconvenient. Not helpful as before. More of a headache trying to find results. Full Review

    Brandon Steger Published date: November 6, 2017

    Used to love this app. But the newer version is not as useful. When I search an area on the map it'll zoom to one particular station. I guess the one with the cheapest gas but it used to just show the prices on the map and I could find the cheapest along my route. Also, why does a gas station ad cover half the map? And lastly, why can't we access the Gas Price Heat map anymore? Full Review

    I hate, hate, HATE the gas station bubbles at the bottom of the map! I do not want to see any data on a gas station unless I click on it! Your suggestions at the bottom take up too much of the map which I want to see. If I wanted your suggestions I would stay on the list view and choose that way. Make the map go back to the way it was nice and big and easy to scroll forward down the road to see what gas stations are coming up! Thanks Full Review

    Great app to know the gas price but sometimes not update if no one in the area updating it. I stop updating it because it doesn't feel very rewarding. Never win anything for doing the work so I think it's the same for the others. Great idea but how to keep it up is still a problem Full Review

    James Quach Published date: November 11, 2017

    GasBuddy used to be a great app, but has gotten annoying for 2 primary reasons. First & most important, the promotions & contests have made the price reports highly unreliable. People are too often updating old prices, mainly with mid/premium grades because of the lack of signage, due to contests & to get on top of the local leaderboard. Sadly, GasBuddy refuses to deal with the issue and has even blocked me on Twitter. Second, the ads have gotten huge, some are half screen & the buttons have shrunk. Greed has destroyed this once top app. Full Review

    I hate the new interface. Very hard to navigate if looking at areas not close to you. Also on the map there is always a station info box which is pointless when searching for a station. When I hit the search button which is also not necessary it zooms in and I want to look in a larger area. I wish I could get the old interface back. Full Review

    Ross Bailey Published date: November 15, 2017

    Every update worse than the last! Very slow to start and switch screens, and the map view crashes regularly. When it does work, the map view autozooms to one station and displays information for that station on the bottom of the screen, with no way to remove it. No way to disable the autozoom and use the entire map view to explore prices along my route. Very annoying is the "Search this area" selection which causes the map to zoom to one station rather than showing all prices in at the chosen zoom level. Full Review

    R.K. Owen Published date: November 2, 2017

    It had been a 5 star app, but they ruined it by changing the map behavior to search & zoom which makes it totally useless. Unfortunately they don't read the recent reviews where this new "feature" has been almost universally panned. I've stopped using it. Full Review

    Chris Wilberg Published date: November 19, 2017

    This used to be a really good app. It gets worse with every update. When I move the map to a particular area and click "search this area" and get recentered to a 99cent store 30 miles away that doesn't even sell gas I get pretty pissed off. That and the fact that it totally leaves off the cheapest stations adds up to me deleting this app. Goodbye. Full Review

    Forrest Winkle Published date: November 2, 2017

    This used to be a great app. Now it's not. I used to be able to type in a specific location, zoom in and out on the map, and find the gas station I want. Now the map is all kinds of messed up. First of all it's half way blocked by a pop-up screen of the closest gas station. It does not go away. EVER. Second, when scanning the area I have to click "search this area" everytime. No more auto updating as the map moves along. Just awful. Terrible user interface. This app isn't Gas Buddy; it's Gas Bully. Full Review

    I hate the upgrade right now, it doesn't refresh stations in a large area it only zooms into the cheapest one in a large area which may not be convenient. Please make a way so I can disable this function! I want to find gas stations on the route I'm taking! Full Review

    Susan Staley Published date: November 16, 2017

    The new update is horrible! I almost exclusively use the map section of the app to plan ahead where we might gas up. Now the app zeros onto ONE station, and if you move the map around you have to hit a "search here" button, and when you do it again zeros onto just one station.This is so cumbersome and irritating!! I'm am about to dump it and look for another gas app!! Full Review

    Used to be good. With a new update is suck. They using google map so it auto zoom in and that is really annoying. It used to load places as you move but now it does not and you have to click on search here just like google map. It very dangerous anf frustrating if you are driving. I know we are not supposed to drive and use it at the same time but come on! Who follow that rule? I will delete the app. You supposed to make it simpler not harder. Full Review

    November 2017: Dropped 2 stars! The new "zoom to lowest price" makes it IMPOSSIBLE to follow along a planned route checking prices & RV access. Please let us shut that off. Has saved me up to $0.30 per gallon both locally and traveling. Love it! Full Review

    Switched to using a different app. Aweful update. Im a trucker. I need to see the next 200 miles. Now when i zoom out it dont show anything. Then u click search this area and it zooms up to a 5 mile radius. And then u put the nearest gas station on the map while im trying to search. App is worthless now to me. Full Review

    Prior to the most recent update it was just slow to launch but worked fine. Now it launches fractionally quicker, crashes constantly, and doesn't load as you search the map making checking prices along your route impossible. The website is also buggy making that experience no better. One of my most relied upon apps is now in the recycle bin. Full Review

    Great app. But I do not like the new format. Used to you could scroll down the highway and see the prices as you go now you have to get to an area and then hit search this area do not like that. Also there's too much stuff in the window you can't see the map very well Full Review

    A Google User Published date: November 17, 2017

    Edit: The new auto zoom feature in the last few updates is terrible! If you're not going to remove it, at least give the option to turn it off. Now I remember why I don't update apps unless I have to. Original: First time I used it, I found gas 56¢ cheaper only a few miles away! I recommend this app to everyone!!! Full Review

    Have completely lost the favorites that I use to use for trip planning. No longer useful for me & since the direction you are going is not likely to change that I am uninstalling. Good luck... Updates & ads are out control & have become a Pita. Also, information is frequently incorrect. Full Review

    Used to be great. Used to touch the map icon and scroll to see all the stations in the area I wanted to go. Now I see one station near me. If I scroll, there are no stations shone. Sometimes just touching the map to scroll causes GasBuddy to crash. This happened three times in five minutes. PLEASE go back to the earlier version! Full Review

    Jim Selkirk Published date: November 1, 2017

    Latest update is awful. I'm looking at a black screen (because it's night?) with no visible landmarks (the lakes are black) and the roads are barely visible. Zooming out, the screen is cluttered with overlapping tags for stattions, and the bottom third is covered with an ad/suggestion for a local station that I can't get rid of. This app used to be so useful but is just unreadable now. Full Review

    Michael Olschewski Published date: November 16, 2017

    The "new" map is such a pain to work with. It no longer just gives you the prices of the area you are looking in. It zooms in on the one station with the lowest price. Then it's stuck. Won't let you move the map around. Which most of the time is out of the way of where you're going. This is how you make a great app suck! I like the older version better. Full Review

    Ray Kenn Published date: November 15, 2017

    What have you done? You had a great app that was simple and efficient, and you have added so many extra features it is now burdensome to use and does not even show the stations it use to. The feature that automatically shows the details for the cheapest gas takes up my display. I will choose if I want to use that station. Furthermore, by automatically zooming to it, I can't tell if it is convenient to my route. Unless it's fixed really soon, I will be looking for another app. Full Review

    No longer indicates Top Tier gas, and slow to load, and why can't we have CC prices only show? 5 cents off a gallon? Big deal, my credit card gives me 3% and doesn't come right out of my checking account. No thanks. I can do Fuel Rewards AND use by credit card and do better than this. My favorite part is when it tells me no results and I'm sitting among gas stations Full Review

    You've made the map interface incredibly frustrating to use. There's always a station "selected" which takes up 1/4 of the map screen and can't be deselected, and whenever you try to load data for a different part of the area, it zooms the map all the way in to a random station, requiring you to zoom back out to compare prices. The map wasn't broken -- why did you "fix" it? Full Review
