Gas Cubby has over a year to be updated and we are still waiting for the fuelly integration with synchronization ability.
Is there an ETA? It will be a huge disappointment if we won't get the update until the end of the year.

I am out after waiting many, many months and lots of promises. But things are getting worse: with iOS 9.1 my wife's iPhone 4S and another iPhone 5s do not sync anymore. Only my iPhone 6s does... So in fact we can't use GasCubby anymore.

What bothers me most is the lack of communication from Fuelly's side. Well I guess we have to cope with that but for me it is time to move on.... Feeling sad to finally make this decision.

It's sad that they can take the top rated and best app of it's kind, and screw it up. they should have hired the original developer to keep it going. My app seems to be working but I do have some small glitches and like everybody else, I am preparing to get ready to move it. too bad!!!!!!! I'll check out Road trip

They haven't screwed it up, yet. Fuelly hasn't changed anything in Gas Cubby in the 2+ years they've owned it. They tweaked it to get it to work on iOS 8, but not changed it.

I checked out road trip trial version and it doesn't track services on the vehicle which is half of what I use it for so its pretty useless compared to gas cubby. If you're gonna switch I recommend switching to fuelly's gas tracker app. It's very clean and allows you to input and/or edit entries on their website which is huge for an app like this

The original developer was not available for any work. GasCubby is built on code that is from the first iPhone. We have been patching it trying to keep it limping along as iOS comes out with new updates. We have a single developer working on the app and have outsourced some tasks to another developer when possible. The rewrite is major and includes massive data model changes. The old data model is not one that was well thought for scaling into the future. One area where we have had the biggest issues is memory issues on old phones when moving data from the old MySQL Lite database to the new one. So between keeping the old app limping along and trying to resolve issues related to compatibility with older phones (iPhone 4) we diverted a ton of resources from core development. That's why we decided recently to only support iOS 8 and later (which would mean iPhone 4S or newer). I know it's taken a lot of your patience, trust me, I pay the monthly bills for all this development and we are not cash flow positive. I feel the pain more than anyone who has to look at the dated app. That being said, we are very very close to starting our public beta of the new app and that will hopefully progress quickly and then we can release it for everyone.

I can't provide an exact ETA because in the past we were unable to meet our deadline and thus that reflected poorly on our communications. It is close and if you want to be a beta tester, please let us know.

Sorry to see you leave. The new app will be the foundation for us to evolve Fuelly and make it way better in the years to come. We have put a ton of work into it so we can evolve and provide lots of new innovative features that will set us apart from other fuel logging apps. I understand your frustration though.

I've got an iPhone 5 with iOS 9.2 public beta that I'm willing to beta test Gas Cubby 3 on.

We'll poke him. Because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent coder, a watchful developer. A dark knight.


Now, don't get me wrong- I'm not saying we have Batman on our team... although, I haven't seen both of them in the same room at the same time...


PS- I'm fairly sure you're already on our list for Beta testers, but I'll double check in the morning.
