Shifting Gears To A Data-Driven Mentality

GasBuddy Blog -- In the current retail landscape, everything is moving rapidly. Consumers have an insatiable appetite for information, and they are actively shaping (and then re-shaping) the brand messaging of the products they purchase.

with all the money spent on gimmicks and silly stuff that's useless, how about making the log-in portion of the site into an https:// site thus, securing the members' information rather than easily exposing it any and all?

the full screen intertitles when achievement thresholds are reached are waste of time and data.

bring back the options page in the app, esp. the screen rotation lock and the auto open to stations. BUT PLEASE test the app thoroughly before posting the new version.

lots of gimmicks in the app = lots of data being wasted for nothing. Time to start looking for other services that focus on gas prices, not entertainment.

still no screen rotation option (i.e. select "preferred = no screen rotation in settings but allow for all other programs to rotate screen")! Currently, to avoid screen rotation, user must select screen rotation block for all apps. Why not stop putting stupid little gimmicks into the app and go back to your roots and make the app useful for price reporting?

oh yea, silly me! I forgot that GB is no longer in the business of informing consumers about gas prices and financing itself with some ads, but it's in the business of pushing ads to those silly folks who think there's some value in the gas prices reported on the site.

Say goodbye to privacy & to reasonable online browsing...some of the targetted pop-up ads are so intrusive you can't read the item you browsed too & love those ads starting in videos that you can't skip or even worse say you can skip in n secs only to have the skip not work.

Data for selling people's info to retailers, Sparky19038 is probably getting a kickback for this trash! Again, GasBuddy is shameless.........
