Pit Stop 2.3 Released for iOS and Android

We are happy to announce the release of Pit Stop version 2.3 for iOS and Android devices. This new version has a Map tab. It will show you a Google map of your location (blue pin) and then the location of gas stations and deals near you (red pins). Tap on a pin to see more information and then tap on the title to view more information about the station or deal. For gas stations, the first 3 gas prices are shown. 

Remember, if you don't find any gas prices in your area, feel free to create an account and add the gas prices or drop us a note with your city/state or zip and we'll work on getting them added!

The same goes for Deals.

To download, go to http://onelink.to/pitstop on your mobile device (available for iOS or Android).

Coming Soon....Bathroom Contest

We just announced through social media that we will be holding a contest to find the best and worst of the gas station bathrooms. 

Why? Because great gas prices and money saving deals are awesome, but if the bathroom isn't kept up and you need to use it, who should waste their time stopping? As a father myself, I will choose a clean bathroom over great prices to make sure my kids have a nice place to do their business. So this will help us kick off the next phase in our mobile app, which is allowing users to rate and review the overall gas station on several factors, including the bathroom. 

Starting now through Labor Day (Sept 7th, 2015), any bathroom you see/use at a gas station is eligible.

We will need the following from you:

  1. A picture of the bathroom. Get the best angle and view of it to capture the feeling that makes it the best/worst.
  2. Location: Gas Station name and address.
  3. Email this information to info@pitstopapp.com

We will be posting these pictures to Twitter, Google+ and Facebook, but we will not use your name or any identifying information unless you give us permission. Also we will be setting something up in social media so you can post directly there as well.  

More to come...stay tuned.

Pit Stop Available for iOS

The Pit Stop mobile app is now available for iOS. Version 1.1.2 has been released.

With this version, mobile users can find gas stations and deals based on how close they are. Much like the Android version, when you view the station details, a button to call the gas station or navigate to the station is available.

 

Mobile users can create an account and update gas prices as well as add new deals that they find. When adding a deal, select "End of the Month" or "End of next Month" for the expires field, and the deal will automaticallly expire at the appropriate time.

New Logo

We've changed our logo to include a new gas pump and a drink. Hope you like!

We're in the process of updating the app and all social media with this new icon.

Android Version 1.0 Now Available

We're excited to launch the first version of our Android app!  

Install from Google Play!

To Add gas/deals or Update gas, you must register (inside the app) with a username, email, and password.
 
Basic features so far:
1) View list of Gas Stations and prices in your area, sorted by distance - tap a station to get details including tap to call and tap to navigate; pull down on list to refresh
2) View list of Deals in your area, sorted by distance - tap a deal to get station info including tap to call and tap to navigate; pull down on list to refresh
3) Add a gas price, or update an existing one - user must be logged in first.
4) Add a deal - user must be logged in first
 
We have lots of ideas for this app and it will be changing as we go. This is what we mean:
1) More features will be added
2) Preference will be to fixing bugs and making the app more user friendly
3) Gas Station locations are available, but gas prices and deals are slim to none as it is dependent on users to enter them to get the most benefit.
 
Please contact us if you have any ideas that you would like to see in the app, or if you find any problems.
 
Gas Stations have the ability to manage their own store(s) using our service and the web interface. This benefits gas stations by allowing them to publish gas prices and deals sooner, rather than waiting for customers to find them and enter them. Additional features include pre-scheduling a deal to activate at a certain time as well as other advanced scheduling features.
 
We are researching options for rewarding our users who add/update gas and deals. Stay tuned...
 

Here are some screenshots of the app being used.
