What's New in Version 2.5.3
This app works to a certain extent. Gas prices are accurate. If you get prices nearby, then press "map" in upper right, then scroll on the map to an area that you want to know about & press "Search here". You'll see prices on the map, just tap a price to see what station it is. Also works with hotels, antique stores, or whatever. I just can't figure out how to add a location so I can avoid this workaround. Adding a location was very simple when I had this app on a Blackberry.
This is a "One Stop Shop" for anyone needing an app that tells you everything. Movies, finding your friends, using your GPS to go to your friends and or movies, businesses or favorite get-a-ways. This app is the most perfect app made today and to top it off IT IS FREE!!! Thank you for making this awesome app.
Just doesn't work
If you're actually moving while trying to get gas prices (like most of the time) the feed just constantly refreshes trying to update your location, so you can't actually click on a place to see the address. Movie previews have no sound. Restaurant list doesn't even have restaurants that are close by. Literally nothing works properly. Shame, poynt was my go to.
