3.0 out of 5 stars If looking for best gas prices get Gas Buddy instead December 23, 2012
Verified Purchase
YP is a reasonable source for gas prices. Gas Buddy is better though. Gas Buddy has more capabilities and is easier to use. Some reasons are:
1 - The gas buddy map of the area of interest shows all the gas station prices in that region at that time. YP only shows the one station you are mapping.
2 - YP map display also shows a pop-up giving address and phone. The pop-up blocks a big portion of the map and you can't get rid of it.
3 - Gas buddy map display can be zoomed more easily YP
4 - On YP you can not see other nearby regions without executing a new search and thereby losing the results of the first search. On Gas Buddy once you have the ability to see all available gas prices by simply moving the field of view of the map.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works well on the Kindle Fire. Great download December 23, 2012
Verified Purchase
I simply LOVE this app! It delivers. You get not only restaurant and gas searches you get hotels, activities and maps with directions! I spent over an hour playing with this app. So far it is very up to date and it runs well. This is simply one of my favorite apps and would recommend it to busy people, who don't want to spend time looking around the web for the cheapest gas prices or hotel info or restaurants. You can also give reviews of the business right in the app, view menus, not the full menu but at least have an idea. I can't begin to tell how much I love this app. Great download! So far there are no annoying pop-ups and the ads that are on there is noticeable but not intrusive. (I hope it stays that way).

1.0 out of 5 stars Why a 1 rating? February 25, 2013
Verified Purchase
This app is great if you live in the area it gives price at. I ask for gas price for in my area and it gives me prices from about 15 to 20 miles away from me. It doesn't have a place where you put your zip code so it could locate whatever business your trying to find in your area. So, if your wanting this app don't get it cause you'll get really upset. It's a good thing it's free, so I'm able to delete this from my kindle fire.

4.0 out of 5 stars night player December 22, 2012
Verified Purchase
Fast download and install on kindle fire. Set location to my home city. Checked gas prices. Default is reg. but there is a selection button in the upper right corner of the screen. Prices were accurate. Tried several grocery store locations. Do not know where they got the info but they had three grocery stores listed at the same address ( Not a mall). Because of this I would suggest you call before you go. Maybe an update is due.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just okay September 12, 2012

Would be better if I could sort by either vendor or gas prices but instead you just have to scroll thru everything to find the best prices. Gas Buddy is better but not sure if it works with the Kindle Fire
