I'm a new husband and father. I'm looking into ways to better manage my household well. I just started a budget system and wanted to track the next important thing, our car usage, fuel consumption and car maintenance.
What drew me to Fuelly was trying to find an app where my wife and I can sync between different devices that don't require having the same icloud account. We both have our own on our phones and then have another on our ipad.
I looked at many apps and tried GasCubby Free, but it didn't have syncing ability. I saw that the paid version has online syncing ability but not sure if it's currently working with Fuelly yet since the recent merger and mentions of future updates and beta. Does anyone know that if I bought the app, could I set it up on our devices and would sync today with data on Fuelly and between each device or would we have to wait for the update for version 3 as it says on www.gasbuddy.com?
GasCubby Sync (paid version) is currently only an offsite backup of your data, it does not sync with Fuelly. That being said, we are getting very close to having a new iOS app for release that would meet your needs. In the meantime you can use Fuelly's mobile optimized website and then switch to the native app later when it's available (which will be fairly soon, ie. probably within a couple months).
Oh yeah, congrats on the addition to your family. Understanding your expenses is a great way to make better life decisions meaning you can care for and support your family more optimally.
