Great app potential but needs more maintenance
This app has been going for a good while. When it works, it is very useful (I provide updates for a few stations). Problem is that it seems to lack developer maintenance lately. Server goes down frequently and no feedback is given as to status. People (including myself) do like this app, so please maintain it for us :-)
Server down again
So frustrating This App is down again the developer should move it in to someone who will maintain the app properly
Unfortunately due to the amount of time the app is down many people simply don't bother anymore also very hit or miss if you get an answer back from the Developer I have been asking for weeks why D4 fuels does not show up on the maps
Great idea but poorly presented and maintained
Great potential wasted
Fantastic idea, crowd sourced data which can help everyone save money. Unfortunately the app doesn't include all features of the website, and is prone to crash. Could be so much better. A wasted opportunity
