[prMac.com] Houston, Texas - Announcing Stewart Malcolm, the developer of Fuel Smart US, has released the 2.0 update for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users looking for the best fuel prices at the pumps. The application is a gasoline price locator, operating via a collaboration of user community input. The latest update includes some new fast and convenient features that will help consumers save even more time and money. Unlike other leading gas price apps, Fuel Smart US is available for a limited time without any recurring subscription costs or ads.
Fuel Smart US can save consumers a lot of money, if used regularly. The app allows users to shop for the best fuel prices, either in their own area or for any other location in the U.S., right from their iDevice. Everyone is encouraged to enter new stations and prices as they come across them and help their fellow price shoppers.
The app helps people find the cheapest gas, compare prices between stations, get directions to a specific station and band together as a group of consumers just trying to cut expensive fuel costs. Both the community and the database are growing as people seek ways to make their economic recovery easier.
The app's newest features include: pump prices at a glance on display maps; optional list view; option to sort data by price or distances; the ability to add fuel tank size and let Fuel Smart calculate potential cash saving by using the function for a price comparison against other station prices. These additions will make quick and easy work of shopping for the best places to cut gas costs.
Unlike other, similar apps, Fuel Smart US is subscription and ad free; there are no other charges beyond the low purchase price, at least for a limited time. The developer has not indicated when or if that will change in future, so now is probably the best time for consumers to grab a copy, if they're going to. Naturally, spending a buck on an app today can have long range benefits. The cost savings in fill-ups will likely cover that dollar hundreds of times over.
This is the third Fuel Smart application released by developer, Stewart Malcolm. Versions of the app already exist for Ireland, Portugal and the UK. All of the Fuel Smart apps feature a strong community and a leading gas price authority for each country. Users are able to make informed purchasing decisions from a current set of values and data.
