December 23, 2010 in Travel
[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - Announcing that Stewart Malcolm, the developer of Fuel Smart UK 3.0, has released the latest update for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users. Fuel Smart is an application that locates petrol stations and displays their fuel prices. The app is a collaboration of user community input and database listings from WhatGas.com and is subscription and ad free. To prepare for the oncoming rise in petrol prices, Fuel Smart UK has undergone something of a makeover.
Fuel Smart UK provides petrol prices for users across the nation. Through the strength of its user-based community and the authority of the UK's number one fuel data provider, the app is an invaluable tool for locating the stations with lowest prices. WhatGas.com offers a huge database of prices but users are able to input pricing that they see at the pumps, which helps others to know the very latest costs.
"Petrol prices in the UK are set to rise again," says app owner and developer, Stewart Malcolm. "It's a great time for the community to work together to share the petrol prices in their respective area."
The Fuel Smart app has an array of money-saving tools, including pump prices at a glance on display maps, optional list view and the ability to sort information by distance or price. Users are also able to add their fuel tank size and let the app calculate the potential cash savings, with a price comparison against other pump prices.
Fuel Smart UK offers many useful features:
* Fuel price coverage throughout the United Kingdom * In the region of 9000 petrol stations are monitored
* See pump prices at a glance on the display maps
* Optional list view
* Sort by distance or price
* Add fuel tank size to have the app calculate your potential cash saving and provide a price comparison against other pump prices
* Easily search for a number of fuel types including unleaded, diesel, super unleaded, super diesel, LRP and LPG
* Unlimited price searches per week
* No reoccurring subscriptions
* No ads!
* Colour-coded system, which allows the user to know the age of the fuel price information; i.e.; within 1-week, 1 to 3 weeks and greater than 3 weeks old
To get ready for this next wave in rising fuel costs, Stewart has updated the Fuel Smart UK app, giving it something of makeover. Aside from a visual facelift, he has increased usability. "The users experienced long load times in previous versions. We have dramatically improved the speed of the app," says Stewart.
What all of this means for users is a fast method of locating the best petrol prices around for a one-time, small investment of only 0.59. It's the least expensive hedge against soaring costs that a user could have.
